If some people chose this approach in life, we wouldn't have so many babies on our welfare rolls and our orphanages would need to exist.
I applaud those who can wait till marriage.
Very well put. I think judging people for choosing abstinence is unhealthy.

And 80's-I am sorry for your loss, and I admire someone who can be so open on a forum like this about something like that-I know I could NEVER do it.

Abstaining not by choice. Well, unless you consider pickiness choosing whether or not you'll have sex...ok, then I guess I am by choice.

Well, all my life I have believed that I should stay pure till married. In 1990, at the age of 23, I goofed up and had a sexual relationship. We had a son, who died 8 hours after birth. I had never had sex before that and never have since. I do not want to have sex, and that is certainly helped by the fact that the women I hang out with feel the same way.

In what way do you mean that? Abstaining from food is unhealthy, abstaining from drink is unhealthy, abstaining from breathin is pretty darned unhealthy, but sex? Why do you say that? Quite frankly, that's one of the oddeest things I've heard in a while, even odder than the post questioning Republicans who are U2 fans...
I should have clarified that abstaining from sex while in a healthy "relationship" is unhealthy.

That's not even right. Believe it or not, you don't have to have sex when you're in love. I know...I've been there. There are people who still don't believe in premarital sex, you know. Call that old fashioned, that's fine, but unhealthy? This ranks as the second oddest idea I've heard; not quite as odd as your original idea that abstaining from sex is unhealthy, but certainly more odd than the 3rd most odd, which is the idea that Republicans shouldn't be U2 fans. What other odd ideas you have for us?

Heck yeah, I think it would be odd and psychologically unhealthy if abstinence continued into marriage, unless both had agreed not to, for some reason. However, we weren't talking about marriage.

Saying relationship covers soooo much more ground than a marriage alone, so that's where we were lost on you...

As far as whether or not to abstain from sex outside of marrage... well... that's up to the two individuals! erm, so yeah, there's my obvious answer for the day...
