Today's Society

Sex outside marriage (when you are not married) used to be frowned upon but, in the last 50 years or so, attitudes have changed. It is now quite normal and acceptable in society to have sex outside marriage. Lots of people live together before they get married.

Sex outside marriage when you are already married is still very frowned upon.
