... if God were real I am sure he'd have many more important things he'd like you to actually be concerned with and I am sure he'd have many more things he'd like to be concerned with.
Marriage, between man and woman, united by God:
Mat_19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Mar_10:9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Actually represents, is like a model picture of, Godhead. Father, Son and Holy Ghost united in purpose towards a goal, like as a music chord. The Man represents the Father, the Woman, represents the Son, and God which unites (as united by the Holy Spirit).
'sex' before marriage is theft (Exodus 20:12), not only of physical, but also robbery of the matters of heart and affection. The persons belong unto God first and foremost, and to the parrents secondly. All who take without such consent, break God's commandment, and are thieves, climbing up some other way than allowed, not going in at the door, by knocking and asking permission to enter.
It (sex before marriage, and not in conformity to God's law) destroys society, for the marriage, is the first foundation of true society (amongst men), and safeguards its corruption, and is the foundation of the church/home (which is the cell of the greater church/society).
A cell which is selfish, cannot live in healthy body which is self-sacrificial. It (a selfish cell) becomes cancerous (2 Timothy 2:17).
Also, such stolen union, creates within the child (if should come of it) further sinful propensities, since the child comes of the nature of the two that came together, even in the hormones of the two, and the child would suffer even further, not merely from nature, but from the dis-union of the unmarried, and suffer emotionally, spiritually, etc. It is cruelty.
