I was married in the Roman Catholic faith and so far no annulment is contemplated.
My wife and I recently married and she kept hers on her right hand, while I moved mine to the left. My sister will be married in the Orthodox church this November.
Pre-Marital Sexual Relations by Archpriest Joseph F Purpura, taken from his book: Moral and Ethical Issues: Confronting Orthodox Youth Across North America It is not surprising that one out of every four teens are unsure if it is right or wrong to have sexual relations prior to marriage, given how much teens are inundated with sexual messages and images in their daily life, starting from the pre-teen years.
The fact that only 5.57 percent of teens in the survey thought pre-marital sex was right is remarkable given the pervasive exploitation of young males and females in the media as sex objects and the constant portrayal of sex outside of marriage as normal and an everyday event without consequences.
We need to better equip teens to make good choices concerning sex and to be able to see through the multitude of sexual messages they receive on a daily basis.
We want teens to see themselves as important, valuable and sacred, despite the messages they receive to the contrary, which tend to debase both males and females.
