It is a common practice today for two people to explore their sexual compatibility before making long-term plans together. Sex even on first date is even quite common; however there are still couples who would chose to wait for a commitment before getting sexually involved with each other.
For couples who wait, religious belief often is considered to play a significant role.
However, regardless of religiosity, waiting helps the relationship form better communication processes, which helps improve long-term stability and relationship satisfaction.
Couples who prioritize sex promptly at the outset of a relationship, often find their relationships underdeveloped when it comes to the qualities that make relationships stable and spouses reliable and trustworthy.
For couples in between — those that became sexually involved later in the relationship but prior to marriage — the benefits were about half as strong.
There’s more to a relationship than sex, and it is shown that those who waited longer were happier with the sexual aspect of their relationship.
The possible explanation is that partners have learned to talk and have the skills to work with issues that come up in the relationship.
