‘No sex before marriage’

The Pope has told couples not to have sex before marriage, showing that despite his outreach to gays and divorcees, he is still a stickler for pre-marital celibacy.

The Holy See, led by the 85-year-old Pontiff, released a document called the “Catechumenal Itineraries for Married Life”. In the document, which extends across 97 pages, the Catholic church urges couples against premarital intercourse, among other detailed advice regarding romantic relationships.
