A man deep in thought

Under the heading of Commentary I am dealing with subjects that are of interest to the Christian, or have a bearing on Christianity, but are not necessarily Biblically based.

Some of these will be subjects that are controversial within the church; some will address matters that are contentious between Christians and non-Christians; and some will be neither contentious nor controversial, but be worthy of consideration none the less.

What is, or should be, the Christian attitude toward sex and marriage? What does the Bible say on this subject that is so vital to human life (since without it none of us would be in existence at all)?
