I made another thread that had nothing to do with this but other people's comments lead me to think about it so I made a new thread.
The comment was from magwitch about sex without marriage not being wrong and I agree. I know that those who believe in the bible will say Adam and Eve were the first married couple but I no longer believe in the bible. I'm beginning to lean toward deism. And since I don't believe that there is any holy book from a creator, it made me wonder how marriage started. Humans are the only species that marry. Who invented it and why? Was it religion? Was it government with or without a religious agenda?
It seems that the only people who still feel pre-marital sex is wrong are those who have a religion to base that belief on. So what came first? Marriage or religion? If it was religion, did it create marriage for the purpose of controlling when people can have sex? For the purpose of condemning people who have pre-marital sex and telling them they're sinners?
Btw, I don't think marriage is bad. I don't want anyone to get that assumption from this post.
