Do You Have to Be Married to Have Sex? – Ask Pastor Brandon

Pastor Brandon,

I have a question for you that I hope you can help me with. I am considering marriage with someone who has a different view on sexual purity as I do. I am persuaded that we should not have sex until we are officially married and he thinks that as long as we are both committed to each other that God sees us as one already and it’s ok for us to have sex before we are officially married. I have referenced several verses of Scripture to him (1 Thessalonians 4; 1 Corinthians 6:18) and he goes back to Genesis saying that Adam and Eve did not have a wedding ceremony at all. I don’t really know what to do at this point and I am being heavily pressured to give in.

I have always tried to do the right thing so that I could be right with Jesus. I want to make sure I obey Him in this as well.

Please help…..
