It's based on the fact of a consummation of a marriage contract in the past, since human beings can be affected on a biological and spiritual level. Sex is incredibly powerful on our emotions. Biologists can tell you in detail how it harnesses the hormone oxytocin and emotionally bonds people together. Sex can bond so quickly and tightly, it’s a cliché that a person can be in a relationship with someone they would normally realize isn’t good for them, but instead make excuses for and stay with.
That power is not only euphoric, it’s most obvious as one of our main motivations for the worst things in life, including self loathing and murder, if our partner has sex with anyone else. The difference in pain being felt from being dumped by someone we’ve slept with is similarly obvious. Not being intimate with a person we’re dating gives us the ability to be far more objective & insightful about how compatible we are. Also, finding that someone to marry and share the rest of your life with does so much for their confidence and security in your love life if you’ve never been with anyone else.
People consider it a sin to have sex before marriage because of their religion. Religion teaches them that they have to wait for the right person to have sex. Religion says that when people have sex before marriage, they commit a sin against their god. Over the past years, people started to have different religions.
They have started to learn about themselves more. People may not be religious and as “old-fashioned” as they were in the past. Some people still try to save their virginity before marriage while there are also some who decide to have sex when they feel that it is right. Religion may teach people values but it would still depend on people if they would hold on to these values or not.
