Here’s what I mean: as I’ve mentioned before, sex creates a mysterious, “one flesh” bond between two people. This powerful emotional attachment was designed by God for married people.
But sexual intimacy outside of marriage clouds one’s perception of his/her relationship. A couple can get caught up in the emotional attachments of sex and think they are deeply in love. But once the excitement wears off, they may realize they had very little in common other than physical passion.
This is one more reason God commands us to abstain from sexual intimacy outside of marriage: He wants us to make wise decisions and choose a truly compatible spouse.
