As far as I know, it's not in the commandments.
So is sex before marriage a sin?
Do people believe you'll go to hell if you do this? Why?
In my opinion, I feel it's important to have sex before marriage because you could be sexually incompatible with your partner, and if you find that out AFTER marriage, then that could be a bad thing. Bad sex for the rest of your days and/or divorce.
I don't consider myself a christian(not sure if I'm atheist or agnostic), but my mom is. And she's quite neurotic about this subject. And when I ask why she believes in this concept, she doesn't give me much of a (logical) reason.
So what do you think? If you believe in this concept, why do you? Do you believe that the rest of humanity that chooses to be sexually active before marriage are going to hell?

Even thinking about having sex out side of marriage is technically a sin. I forget the part of the bible that says that, but it is in there. If you aren't a christian then it doesn't matter if you sin or not. Whether or not something is sinful only applies to people that follow that religion.
Besides most people pick and choose which parts they want to follow anyway. I seriously doubt female Christians actually believe it is their place to serve their husband like the bibles says they are suppose to. People have even started new branches of their religion so they can get a divorce because their religion doesn't believe in it. So they just focus on the parts they like, and ignore the parts they don't.
What is right for one person, may not be right for another. If you believe it is important to have sex before marriage then do it. Personally I am an Atheist, but religion can be a great source of comfort so I understand why people seek it. If you are seeking some type of religious belief then you may even look outside Christianity, and find a better match for your world views in a different religion.2
