in response to reader comment: But alot of muslim girls does have sex before marriage

Submitted by Jordana Ghannam-Ahmed (United States), Jan 24, 2020 at 12:31

You're not wrong, some Muslim girls DO have Sex before marriage, no different from girls anywhere in the world of any faith. The thing is though, sex before marriage is not societally acceptable and is frowned upon in Islam, as it is in ANY conservative, practicing, abrahamic religious community. Sex before marriage is equally as unaccepted in conservative orthodox Christian and Evangelical Christian communities. It is true though that sexual promiscuity or liberalism IS less taboo and more widely acceptable in the west than it is elsewhere; although I would argue it has far less to do with religion than with culture :)
