Olayode Juliana who was popular for her role as Toyo Baby in Funke Akindele’s Jenifa diary had an interview with The Nation recently where she spoke on her concrete belief against se.x before marriage.
According to her, se.x before marriage leads to cheating when people eventually become married as they start comparing their partner’s se.xual prowess with that of the people they had se.x with before marriage.

Do you believe that se.x before marriage makes relationships more complicated?
Yes I do. se.x before marriage makes relationship more complicated. Some ladies date more than five men before marriage and sleep with all of them because they see it as a norm or a way to prove their love against God’s standard. I personally believe that there is a lot to se.x than the pleasure it gives. It makes you become one with the person. It ties you with the person, such that when you marry you compare your previous se.xual life with your present and the memories of how you did it with the other person won’t leave you, expecting more from your husband or wife, forgetting that we are all not the same and our se.xual lives can’t be the same as well.
That’s what leads to cheating in marriage. Some men or women can’t imagine been faithful to just one person because they’ve done it with several people in their past or before marriage so it’s difficult. Research has it and I learnt that if you had se.x with a particular person if you meet the person-years after and you’re alone or whatever, it is possible that you will do it again.
You are really a strong advocate on ‘no se.x before marriage?
se.x is good, don’t get me wrong, I mean God created it and everything He made is good and beautiful but se.x before marriage is what makes it bad and wrong and se.x with anyone else apart from your husband or wife in marriage is bad as well.
