Question

Answer:

My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a year and two months and we've been having sex for quite some time.  We recently had a talk the other night about whether or not having sex was wrong before marriage, and we were wondering since it's approved for married couples and we're not married what can we do to maintain that intimacy in the bedroom without sinning?


Get married.

"Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge" (Hebrews 13:4).

"But if they cannot exercise self-control, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion" (I Corinthians 13:9).
