Sex outside of marriage with Christian girlfriend? Watch

    I am an Atheist- I have never really believed in (the christian) God as I have never really found 'proof' of existence etc. Anyway, my girlfriend is a christian which I completely respect that as her personal belief. She would, therefore, be against sex before/if we got married. I really love her and she loves me too. I don't think it would come to the point of choosing between her religion or sex... I know she is pretty reserved and have been taking our relationship fairly slowly. I know that sex outside marriage is a sin (in most religions in fact) but I also know that this particular matter (for Christians at least) is fairly tangible; Christians such as the Archbishop of York have suggested to condone this in recent years.

    My problem: would I be able to have sex with her at a later stage? Is sex outside of marriage really a major issue to Christians (your opinion is appreciated and I'm sorry this isn't open to other religions)?

    Obviously I need to talk with her, find out how strict she is and her opinion....But I couldn't get this confusion out of my head..

    I would be grateful for any input

    P.S we are both above the age of 16

    Honestly If I was her I wouldn't accept to have sex but obviously you should discuss it with her

    Have you asked your girlfriends opinion on this? Yes it is a sin to have sex before marriage but very few Christians actually stick to it nowadays compared to the past. The only way to know is to discuss it.
