Do sins against chastity destroy ones virginity? Sins such as heavy petting/groping, passionate kissing and touching (below belt) and masturbation. Do these actions constitute a loss of virginity?
Someone I know talked to me about her sadness and grief over things that she did with her fiancé. (She is ok with me posting about this as I am not naming her.) They engaged in the above activities and through Gods grace, both her and her fiancé repented and went to confession and ceased all sexual activity. They have abstained from even kissing and have remained chaste since. She is worried and grieved that her virginity has been lost, even though they never engaged in full intercourse (male to female penetration). What do you guys think? Has virginity been lost?
