Wyatt Chant was in year 7 in his Catholic school when his religious education teacher told the class to stand on one side of the room based on what they would or wouldn't do. Those who planned to have sex only after marriage stood on one side, and kids who expected to have premarital sex stood on the other. Inthe Second Australian Study of Health and Relationships of over 20, people found that 87 per cent of Australians believe premarital sex is acceptablebut many Australian Christians think differently. Infrom a sample size of 1, Catholics, Anglicans and Protestant church attenders, There are still Christian men and women who choose not have sex before marriage because of their Christian convictions, but also because they believe it is a better way to do romantic relationships.
Wyatt grew up in a Christian home and abstinence was expected, a belief he inherited from his parents who did not have sex before they married. But as a teenager he knew he had to decide for himself. In high school it meant turning down offers for sex from girls at parties, and as a young adult Wyatt sets up what he calls dating "guard rails" to avoid situations that may lead to sex. Growing up and living in the family home, Wyatt says "me and my girlfriend were not allowed to be in my room with the door closed.
We were not allowed to be at our house if there wasn't anyone else there". Wyatt's in the minority when it comes to Australians' view on premarital sex, which has become part of the social norm over the past 30 to 40 years, says Anastasia Panayiotidis, the general manager for clinical services at Relationships Australia in Victoria. But for people who choose not to have sex before marriage, it may be possible to experience the spark without sex.
Ms Panayiotidis says that there is a "discipline and a decision" involved in choosing abstinence. From her discussions with people who decide to wait, she says, "They are actually showing trust and the value of the relationship, and that there's a life they are looking forward to build together. Historical Christian teaching about sex limited it to an act between a man and a woman only in marriage, but the purity culture that emerged out of the '80s and '90s culture wars in the United States enshrined the teaching in a different way.
What was considered right or good by Christians involved no dating unless you were ready for marriage, save your first kiss for your wedding day, virginity is everything, and of course, no sex before marriage. The changing landscape of dating was a chance for Claire to reconsider what she believes and why. She ed up for Tinder, Hinge, and OkCupid, and had to figure out the app dating scene — where she could be going out on dates with multiple men several days in a row.
Claire, now 30 and a public school teacher in Melbourne's inner west, only met and dated Christian men on the apps, but some had ly had sex. They live an hour apart, and the driving took up too much time, so some evenings he spent the night in her apartment — in separate bedrooms — something she would never have considered before.
Robyn J Whitaker from the University of Divinity in Melbourne said"Churches can offer healthy, positive sex education that values both virginity and the gift that is our sexuality.
For abstinence to work, Ms Panayiotidis says it must be a personal decision without pressure or coercion from a religious group or sect. Ms Panayiotidis adds that a healthy relationship requires more than just a sexual connection. A healthy relationship is one where both parties are equal, where there is no manipulation or control.
