Don't just to conclusions. Correlation is not the same as causation.

I agree with the previous commenter. There might be plenty of other factors. Also why marriage is some kind of stumbling block? Some can hasten to marry to finally have that "legitimized" sex and thus leave the relationship underdeveloped as well. I agree that you should be careful if you want a stable relationship, but it's not only about waiting until marriage, I think.

it is ultimately up to two individuals really. there are so many things to consider and not just having good sex. to me personally, when in the relationship, you get to ignore the absence or presence of sex and yet still be contented being with that same person over and over again is a basis of a good relationship. am not saying PMS is good or bad, am just saying it's a personal choice and whatever consequences arise from one's actions is the sole responsibility of that person. therefore i conclude, we shouldn't be making choices based on some study but instead we choose what we feel is right and if it turns out to be wrong, deal with it and move on.

i am comforted by the thought that my mistakes teach me the most important things in life. so.... whatever...

I think the study sheds light on some valid points. I don't think that it necessarily depends on if you are intimate before or after marriage. What I think it is, is making sure that your emotional maturity of the relationship lines up with your physical maturity. If two people are doing the do like rabbits right off the bat and not focusing enough on the emotional aspect of the relationship and how well they go together besides the sex, I think it can be detrimental. But as long as you are keeping the scales even on how mature the physical and emotional is, I don't think sex before marriage is a bad thing at all. It's important to know that you are sexually compatible. And sexual intimacy is important. I like the ideas that the study brought up though.

=* I always thought it was more of a "if you don't know what you are missing, you won't miss it.," deal. Since I was active before marriage I just can not keep a relationship going that has crappy sex. To me virgin marriage would be a gamble, just imagening getting stuck with some of the crappy partners I've had gives me nightmares. Yes learning to communicate to improve sex would help stablize a relationship, buuuuut this is one thing where I think a bit of natural tallent is a must. -_-

here's an example: one of my buddies decided to play cho choo train with my breasts....... that was the end of that relationship. I could never look her in the face again with out the image of her saying cho choooo.
