A few friends and I were debating this today, so it got me thinking. One friend's daughter has been sexually active with her boyfriend but is now trying to be chaste within the relationship. The friend said her daughter and the young man have dated for the last nine months or so. They have discussed marrying in the future.
I don't think this is impossible (as nothing is with God) but will be very difficult. I think it will require FAR more discipline to stay out of temptation now than if they'd never been intimate. They also will need to have an equal devotion to God and chastity itself for it to possibly work. Other friends disagreed and said it was a recipe for disaster; that if the couple isn't within marrying age (they are legally as they are 18, but it's hardly practical) they should separate.
Opinions? Anyone here who was able to maintain a successful, chaste relationship after having sex?
