I am afraid that you are correct on all counts.

It would be sad if she DID remember...
What were you planning to say, Sunshine?

That's a very balanced and reasonable way to look at it...and I don't think it's self-richteous at all.

And even if they are honest, in the heat of the moment, it's not too difficult to find 7/7 flying out the window.

Can I add some nuance here? I wonder if the question matters more to women to men. I won't have sex until I am married, but 5/7 is not a deal breaker for me (at least on CM.) The fact that a woman is ok with premarital sex doesn't mean to me we would have sex or even taht she wants to, and as a guy i would not feel threatend by a woman who wanted to have sex before marriage (it would annoy me.) However, I could imagine that women could feel threatend by a man who felt ok with that, and also worry that a 7/7 was lying. Thoughts & Coments?

It depends on why she is 5/7? Misunderstanding or struggling with the faith and willing to submit to the faith? No problem. Obstinate rejection of the Church's moral authority (moral relativism)? No way.

Sometimes I wonder why we have this conversation here. But then I remember that there are babes in our midst who are learning to leave the milk for meat and it helps to aid our communication skills. However if anyone does not care enough to respect their bodies then how can someone respect it. Also why does one just want to be yoked with someone who would hump anyone who is just opened to be humped?

I think this rule applies better to young boys and girls who have lived a chaste life all the way up to marriage, are virgin and are going to get married. Then the "no sex before marriage" has a symbolic significance: when they marry each other, that night, the contract is actually written in the blood of the hymen, and as it is common throughout the bible, there is no contract, no covenant without blood being spilled. In the past, I believe the father of the girl used to keep the bed sheets on which the marriage was consumed (with the blood and all) as a proof that her daughter was a virgin.
In my case, I was already married and I am no longer a virgin. I have a hard time seeing how that no-premarital sex would apply to me, unless the girl I would be in the process of marrying is a virgin.
So I will not lie to myself. I don't know how the priests do it, but I like sex, and if I have the opportunity, at my age, I will have sex before marriage.

After reading your posts, Jacques, in which you talk about opportunities, as I woman I think: What if you get married and after sometime your wife goes on a wheelchair, etc. or is pregnant? Would you have sex with other women when you have the "opportunity"? Praying
