Getting The Milk For Free

Why should men marry women when they can get it for free?  This is a quote from Hamlet by Shakespeare, translated into understandable English ~

Young men will do it if they get a chance:
By God, they’re very bad.
She said, “Before you got me into bed,
You promised to marry me.”

He answers:
“I would have married you, I swear,
If you hadn’t gone to bed with me.”

Sleeping together before marriage is extremely prevalent even among Christians.  It is sin and you will suffer the consequences.  Everything God tells us to do is for our good.  There are probably so many men out there that don't want to get married because they don't need to...They get sex for free.  No responsibility. No commitment.

Maybe God gave men such powerful sex drives so they would get married.  Marriage is a very good thing ordained by God.  Societies are healthy when there are a lot of married couples with children.  God knows what He is doing.

People don't want to do things God's ways anymore.  They don't want to wait.  They want to do things their own way and society is paying a very heavy price...abortions, single mothers, sexually transmitted diseases, etc. 

Women, don't sell your virginity for free.  Wait for a godly man that will put a ring on your finger first and say, "I do" to a lifetime of commitment and responsibility.  Marriage matures people quickly.  Wait for a man that wants commitment and responsibility.

Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that commiteth fornication sinneth against his own body.
I Corinthians 6:18

Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
I Corinthians 7:2

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints.
Ephesians 5:3
