            It depends upon the couple.

              lulz - virginity on the wedding night has been in the minority for decades.

                      Well, IMO,it has always been a good thing but much more valued in females than males. Males were expected to go out and sow their wild oats. Women were expected to be virgins because that ensured the pregnancy was a result of the marriage, not another union right before the marriage. When women didn't have the consequence of pregnancy the deterrent was gone. Of course the risk of STDs is still there (that's what condoms are for) and much higher is females and males but it took awhile for people to consider STDs as risk.

                      Medically the risk is much higher with early sexual activity both for STD and early pregnancy so the later the better. As a woman who grew up in a time where equality was novel, or in some places non-existent, I understand the cultural backlash of what is good for the gander is good for the goose.

                        For one reason, girls aren't getting married at 14 anymore. For another, many people aren't superstitious enough to think there is an old man in the clouds with a lightning bolt waiting to smite them for the slightest indiscretion.

                          is the rise of unwed motherhood a good thing? Is "hooking up" a good thing? is the man fathering 7 kids with 7 women a good thing?

                          is adultery wrong? is being promiscuous good or bad?

                            What do any of those have to do with what I said about girls not getting married at 14 or thinking they will get smote for even thinking about sex?

                              Is drowning a good thing? Are floods a good thing? Are tsunamis a good thing? Then how can you say that water could ever be good?

                              Sex can have negative consequences if it is done irresponsibly - just like every other human activity. Telling two responsible, educated, financially established 40-year-olds in a mutually monogamous relationship that premarital sex is wrong for them because some idiot from the hood has 7 kids by 7 mothers makes absolutely no sense. Those aren't the same thing at all, but your brush seems to be plenty wide enough for both.
                              If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                                I've been trying to point out that this culture of "do it and **** the consequences" is not necessarily a good thing.

                                Perhaps society should have more restraint?
