Let me state my disclaimer: I am no Modernist, and I believe along with an old textbook on life called the Bible that premarital sex is a sin. You don’t have to convince me of that. My real question is why. What are the reason’s that God has made sex for a married couple alone? My understanding is that God represents himself as male, and Israel, his bride, is spoken of as female in order to mimic (or rather, humanity mimics THAT relationship) the love man and woman have for one another. My guess is that the reason sex must be monogomous lies in that symbology, but I am having trouble discerning how exactly monogomy fits in.
As silly and juvinille as the question might sound, it for some reason is a bit harder than expected to pin down.
