Can I commit to chastity even if I’ve already been sexual active?
Yes, you can! It is important to understand what chastity is in its fullness. We can recommit ourselves to chastity and continue following this plan for our sexuality. The term we use for this idea is secondary virginity. So, now for the practical part of what does this actually mean to live and commit to chastity.
Chastity is not just a choice, it’s a lifestyle. Saving all sexual activity for marriage is an essential part of living our chastity, but married people also live this virtue of chastity by remaining faithful to their spouse. Since it is a lifestyle it also involves respecting yourself and others. Dressing modestly is another important aspect of living chastity. It is more than just purity of actions it also involves purity of thought and word.
