Reason behind this tabboo against premarital sex in most of the religions is that during ancient times, there were no contraceptives, so having sex before marriage, more than often lead to unwanted pregnancy. So there is nothing moral or immoral about it, just a practical reason.

Bottom line is, what do you want for yourself.  Religion is just a guideline, one way of living your life.  The plethora of denominations and various religions proves that there is no one right way to live your life.  Personally, no I did not wait to have sex before getting married.  Now, if you want to 100% reduce the risk of getting pregnant before marriage then yes, abstain.  Good luck either way.
