Simply put, the right time to lose your virginity is the night of your wedding day and with the person who have committed to love and cherish for the rest of your life. I know it's hard to wait, and the pressure of feeling like you're the only one who is a virgin presses in so hard—especially when you hear your friends talking about various things they're doing with boyfriends or girlfriends. But trust me, this precious gift of purity is something you want to keep guarded for your future husband or wife. Not only for that person, but also for you. The thing about sex is that it takes a little piece out of you every time.

The Damage of Overvaluing Virginity
Growing up in a Christian home, I was raised to view my virginity as almost as important as my salvation. I took those warnings to heart. It's difficult to understand if you didn't grow up in the church, but the focus on purity before marriage is so pervasive in many Christian circles that I didn't even question it.
A very good friend of mine recently broke up with her boyfriend. They were both Christians, very involved in the church and on the outside seemed happy. I was not shocked when they broke up though, because she had confessed to me their biggest problem: He would not let go of the fact that she was not a virgin. Over and over he brought up that he needed to "mourn what was lost," even though these conversations would often end with her in tears.
