Question Box Friday

What should I do if my boyfriend is pressuring me into having sex?

Tell your boyfriend "No." Explain why you don't want to have sex with him. If he continues to pressure you, leave the situation and dump him as your boyfriend.

The gift of your sexuality is such a precious, intimate and powerful gift that only one man is worthy enough to recieve: your husband; the man who truly loves you and has proven his love for you by the sacrifices he is has made in order to put your best interest before his own. Sex before marriage is never an expression of love because it always places the beloved at risk. True love would never put the beloved at risk.

I know this can be hard to hear and I know that peer-pressure is a big deal, especially in high school. I know you want to have a boyfriend because it makes you feel good and makes you feel of worth, but you are very special and of great value and worth to God, your family and friends and Thom and I. You don't need a boyfriend to prove that. You are special because you are made in the image and likeness of God and you are His precious daughter. You deserve to be respected as such and anyone who is pressuring you to have sex with him does not have your best interest in mind. He only has his own selfish desires in mind and you deserve more than that. You deserve to have a boyfriend that really cares about you and respects you. So stay strong in your values and morals and don't let anyone manipulate you into something that goes against them!
