It's hard to find a relationship now that does not involve sex. The desire to have sex is normal. Sex isn't a bad thing in itself. The way you have it and the person you have it with is what determines what it is to you.
Nowadays, people no longer see sex as a big deal. Some people will have sex with anyone and anytime with no emotional attachment or strings attached so long it is consensual and trust me such types of sex are most times amazing but not as amazing as the ones you have with someone you truly care about and perhaps in love with.
Some however hold sex sacred. They will never have sex with you except in a committed relationship. Whether you are just having sex for fun without being in a committed relationship or you are having it with someone you are committed to, so long it is outside the walls of marriage there could be consequences.
There are lots of ways of ensuring safe sex but apparently a lot of people still prefer to skin dive. With the unending list of STDs and STIs, you'd think people will be very cautious about it but hell no, they come up with several silly excuses while they couldn't get to a condom at that moment or use a contraceptive pill.
I have a problem with this term "unwanted pregnancy". Was it really unwanted? I mean except she was raped, if it was consensual then there is nothing unwanted about it. When you have sex with a guy without protection and he cums inside you, what were you expecting? A growth of protein or perhaps an increase in wisdom and understanding?
What surprises me more is when after it has resulted in pregnancy, they suddenly realise they can't marry each other for one insane reason or the other. You hear excuses like she's not educated. Oh well, in-between her legs seems to be educated enough for you. Or perhaps, he's so poor I can't marry him but seems his third leg had all the riches you would ever need.
I agree that having sex with someone isn't a prerogative to getting married to the person
Why have unsafe sex with someone you don't see a future with?
