I didn't say "prohibited", I said "the norm". Do you deny that what one grows up around will influence his behavior? Even if humans are all about sex, if they grow up in a culture where the vast majority of people are abstaining, than it will have a major influence on most of the kids (and even if it's only some
of the kids, like I said, a step is still a step). Besides, I only brought up "until marriage" because it's safe to say that a couple at that point is as ready for that level of intimacy as they will ever be, and a consistent view of what "ready" is is better than simply guessing.
Anyway, back to the "responsibility" thing, my worry is that, as a culture, we're at a point where teaching "take responsibility" is actually a huge
change in how we do things; and people would rather conform with what they find familiar than deal with that king of hassle.
