What can I do about Premarital Sex?

If there was something you could do to prevent your son or daughter, or the young people in your church or school, from experiencing the pain and heartache that accompanies premarital sex, would you do it? I can’t imagine anyone answering that question in the negative. Any parent, pastor or teacher with any compassion at all would jump at the chance to save his or her kids from pain.

There is something you can do, and it is within your reach. I often say it this way: One of the best things you can do for your kids is to love your spouse. You can combat the love famine in your child’s life by purposely modeling love in your relationship with your husband or wife. Make your marriage a growing example of a loving relationship. Let your respect, kindness, faithfulness and friendship show in how you talk to each other, care for each other and even disagree with each other. Then determine to demonstrate that same quality of love toward the young people under your care. It will make all the difference in the world.
