:-S Let's be real, okay? Is sex wrong outside of marriage? What is it called first of all when you have sex outside of marriage? Fornication. Let's go to what the Bible says on fornication (which sometimes even includes adultery). Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: (this is a list of sins) Let's talk about faith. Faith is about a lot of things...including obedience. Are you obeying God when you have sex outside of marriage? No. You become married not just when you sign the license, BUT when you have sex. That is why it is so dangerous. Yes, there are consequences. There IS a reason why God made marriage because then the consequences of having sex aren't so huge and overwhelming. Now, this question about those who are in a situation where marriage is out of the question...there are three situations where this would be the case. One, the people are of age (over 18), but one is older...much older than the other. Two, the people are too far away from each other, which then wouldn't be what we are talking about here. Three, one or maybe both are married to someone else. I could be wrong....there might be another?? None of these are good reasons. I believe there is never a good reason to have sex outside of marriage. 1 Corinthians 7 1Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 3Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. (there is a space here. I skipped a few verses) 6But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. 7For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. 8I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I. 9But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. The writer is talking about 'should I get married or not' stuff. This is why sex outside marriage isn't right. The writer talks about husbands and wives. Nothing here about motive. There is no holy motive to sex outside marriage. God will see your heart and know that you have been disobedient. I believe if you think that having sex outside of married is okay...I'd ask...'what is the real motive?' If you love someone, you can wait until marriage. Hopefully, I made some sense and this helped someone.
