Student: Kejdi SaliuTopic: Premarital Sex
Premarital sex is a huge problem in society today. People everywhere are not waiting until they get married to have sex. People having sex today are not aware of the consequences that come with having sex. They just think it is fun and there are nothing other than fun comes with having sex. Some people tend to have a lot of sex. They say they do it for the satisfaction. They believe sex is fun. It is perceived to be a great thing from the time one is young. In today’s society women are not held to that same standard as men are when it comes to having sex.
Now that the reasons people are having sex has been somewhat discussed and is out of the way, let us discuss the consequences that come with having sex, such as A.I.D.S. This is a deadly virus that kills ones immune system. There are lots of other diseases out there other than A.I.D.S that are caused by having sex. Most other sexually transmitted diseases are deadly but they are curable if found before they cause your body damage.
Let’s not forget how bad a reputation could be damaged if people found out that a person had a sexually transmitted disease. They would be laughed at and ridiculed. People would think that a person was dirty if they knew they had diseases. What kind of feeling would a person have knowing that they have a disease that they have contracted through sexual intercourse.
Pregnancy is also a result of sex. Those who are not married and have children don’t only make their own lives harder by burdening themselves financially but they also make it harder for their children to live without both of their parents there for them at all times. In some cases, children are left with just one parent and have to grow up the rest of their lives feeling unwanted because their biological father did not stick around. A child cannot comprehend the fact that his or her father just wanted to have sex with his or her mother, and that is it. How could you explain this to a child? You couldn’t and if you did there would definitely be something wrong with you.
Sex is not entirely bad. In my opinion sex should be treated like everything else and be done in moderation. People should learn to understand one another and understand that sex is a big step in relationships. If it were not a big step there would be no point to get married. People who have slept around are not going to have an easy time finding a life mate. Nobody wants somebody who had slept with all of their friends. Why would you? How could you? It would be really awkward having all of my friends standing in my wedding knowing that had all had sex with a person that was going to be my wife in a couple of hours.
Hopefully people will begin to look at everything they can lose from having sex before marriage. The same goes for those who cannot be monogamous. People should hold themselves to a higher standard. If people had more confidence I believe that they would feel they needed to have sex to impress people or to make people happy. Sex should be a result of love and should have more meaning than it does to some people.
To conclude, I think that premarital sex is something that every person is free to decide, whether to have sex before marriage or not. Even though times have changed and premarital sex is not considered a taboo anymore, everyone should take care for themselves and especially for their health. I am not against premarital sex, but I think that both females and males should be careful in picking the right partner to have sex and to make sure that he or she is someone special in order to not suffer the consequences in the future.
