Are you waiting for marriage before having sex? I'm a Christian and am waiting, but I just wanted to hear others opinions on the topic!!!

I agree it is an individual choice.

But on an upside, what about communication about expectations of a sex life? Will each partner be able to let the other know of their needs? I am sure each person has some idea, via reading, or movies or talking to friends what to expect. If there is open communication and ability to be flexible in thinking and actions it could be a long lasting relationship.

  It is an individual choice.  But waiting does have a deep downside.  Not knowing to other sexually may be a big mistake since if they are unsatisfactory then what?

No.

If you feel you must, then wait.  I didn't feel I needed to or had to, so I didn't.

I'm middle aged and divorced so that stage of my life is long past, but no I didn't wait.  But you should do what feels right for you.
