Not Having Sex Before You’re Married I don’t know what you’ve been taught about sex, including maybe by your church, but I’ve found that often the focus is on young women’s purity, and it’s imagined that you will simply have to deny and fight off men’s advances. You will also want to have sex, and just because your boyfriend might be a Christian, don’t imagine that the temptation won’t be an issue.
