Pornography will affect your marriage even if you are still single and waiting for your spouse. If you start viewing pornography, or when you view it, keep in mind that through mental stamping of the brain (that brain wash of chemicals when viewing porn) you will mentally carry many of those images for the rest of your life. While that may seem like a long time and impossible, I can still remember from my pre-teen years some of the images I saw in magazines that I found along the road while leisurely riding my bike on warm summer days.
If you desire a healthy sex life one day with the man or woman who God so generously gives to you, then stay far, far away from pornography today. By staying away now, you won’t need to confess involvement to the future love of your life. By avoiding the temptation of pornography now, you begin to establish trust in this area with your future life mate. Your mind will be more free and far more pure from sexual lust. You will not have to deal with sexual shame. Your marriage bed can be free of mental comparisons and images that only bring hurt and damage to your future love-making. You will live in a greater sense of freedom today and in the future. And, your future spouse will feel so honored that you chose not to bring destructive thoughts and images into your marriage bed.
I love these verses that Paul writes under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit: But since there is so much immortality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband. The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband’s body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife. Do not deprive each another except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. (I Cor. 7: 2-5) Honor God and honor your body for the one that you will one day show honor to.
