Sex and religion /Looking for Christian responses (no offense intended if you are not religious)

MrWood MrWood
I'm not trying to start a religious discussion or anything, I just want to know what you think. I am a Christian, and yes I know that sex outside of marriage is not biblically supported. Here is my situation. I'm a divorced man 47 and I'm very active in church, etc... I have had several relationships over the years since my divorce, but haven't found any one knew that I want to marry yet.

We all know that sex in a serious relationship is important. I feel like when I have a physical relationship with someone that I am such a hypocrite, but I still do it. I'm just wondering how other people have delt with it, or if I am just being a weak person for wanting sex. I'm not permiscuous or any thing and don't sleep around, just in monogamiou relationships.

Sorry about the mis-spelled Christian, lol. It won't let me fix it.

Sex is a human need. No need to feel guilty. If you are divorced, what's the problem?

Just struggle some with obedience to do what the bible tells us to do, which is abstain from intercourse until you are married.

It is said we are all sinners no matter how hard one tries. But then there is also forgiveness.

Thanks for your replies. I do understand there is forgiveness, I was just wonderng if other single christians struggle with this and what they do. I know that no matter how hard I would try to be abstain, I love sex too much to do that. Do most women feel this way, or do they want sex just like men, even outside of marriage?

I pray on it. If you talk to God every day and listen to what he says, you'll get an idea for what he thinks is right and wrong. I talk to God about sex within my monogamous relationship, and I feel like it is okay with Him. Each persons relationship with God is between you and Him! If you want to know what your mum likes, you ask her, right?

Follow what YOU feel is right not what someone else says. Even if that someone else is a high level church official.
I no longer consider myself christian, so if you find no value in it just discard my opinion.

I love Ryuson's answer and I agree with her. I grew up in church so once I found myself in a serious relationship I felt very guilty for having sex with him. It took me a while to let go and really enjoy my sex life with him. We are both young, and each others first. (Almost 20 now) We've been together since we were 16. I feel like since we are committed to each other and monogamous then that is what matters for us. We love each other, a court issued document that didn't even exist in Jesus's day doesn't matter to us when it comes to us having sex. In our eyes, we pretty much are married.
