VIRGINITY – A long time ago, it was a badge of honor, chasteness and modesty. Nowadays, it is treated by many as a mark of immaturity, weirdness, and a malady to those who are not “in”.
Unsurprisingly, youths are giving up their virginity. At an early age of 14 (or less), some already experienced sexual relations. Brought about by curiosity, peer pressure, lack of knowledge and a liberated attitude, many approve of premarital sex.
Once you give it, there is no turning back. Like a broken glass, it cannot be used again for an honorable purpose. The bits and pieces will just be there, yet the glass is not whole anymore.
It may seem pleasurable for some, yet consider the aftereffects:
1. Sexually transmitted diseases – especially for those with a variety of partners
2. Guilt and disappointment – lack of self control and diminished self-respect topped the list
3. A feeling of vanity in pursuits and self-degradation
4. Emotional scars – Some individuals are just after the sexual relations, yet no love is present. After the act, they leave their partners behind.
So for ladies (and girls) out there, may we all consider virginity as a precious possession. Though opinions may vary, may we stick to what is honorable and reap the fruits of chastity and a building lasting intimacy with a partner, not just the present pleasures of lust and lack of self-control.
Virginity is still the best gift you can give to your marriage partner. =)
So take care of your "glass". ;)
