    I think it is each individuals choice. Of course in the ideal world everyone would wait for that special "one" but we do not live in the ideal world so you have to choose what is best for you.

    I was a virgin until I was 28, but not for lack of trying!

    I really don't like the phrase "for religious purposes". if you are a true Christian, then your moral compass should be on target and you should want to do what is pleasing to the one you love-the Lord. of course this is not popular, but I could care less what "man" thinks about what I do as a Christian.

    Yes virginity until marriage is the ideal situation but the only problem is that girls and women are held to this standard more than boys and men. So if a girl or women make mistakes in their youth, are they expected to be considered forever flawed and unworthy. Sex is a private choice, some make it earlier than others, some too early. However, we are supposed to be a society that agrees with second chances and everyone is worthy of love and respect and a healthy relationship if they change their behaviour.

    Maintaining virginity is up to the person.He/she can maintain it if he/she is a religious person or lose it if an atheist.

    Sex is something precious between a man and a woman and maturity helps to make wise decisions. Seems today most people take it too lightly and have sex with any and everybody! Bad idea!!

    I was still a virgin at age 29 when I met and married the only man who ever kissed me. I told my grandson and granddaughter about to get to dating age, that they need to reserve their kisses for the right people. Television has kids today thinking it is all right to kiss anyone sexually and do not know what it does to their hormones. I told them I married the only guy I ever kissed - not only one I went with. In June we will celebrate 33 years of marriage. I didn't marry until age 29 and husband was 32. With comment above mine, I have also been a Sunday School teacher and talked frankly with the kids at church who seem to have no training on this issue like I did at church. It is like Pastor's don't address it like they did when I was in Junior High and High School.

    I find it strange that such young kids even think about sex. I just never thought about it as a kid. Still think everyone makes too much about sex. Loosing your virginity isn't so great anyhow.

    I'm 33, still a virgin. Will likely remain one for a good while yet. I probably wouldn't feel ashamed at all if it were not for people who act like sex is the only thing that matters in the world.

    i think the most special thing a man and woman can give each other in being married is themselves, preserved from all others.. otherwise what you 'share' on your wedding night is just a repeat of a lustful experience you had with someone random long ago..

    I think that it should be whatever age you get married at should be the right age. But people are imperfect and sometimes your emotions are stronger than you can handle at a younger age and in that case is just better that people are educated and do things safely or that people are treated with respect and given support if they have young pregnancies etc. God loves people even when they make mistakes. If people were perfect he wouldn't have had to die for them so people should just be educated and supported. But ideally the right thing would be whatever age someone gets married.
