Before dating marriage
God has ordained that the benefits of marriage come when you are married, not before.God’s purpose for giving man and woman the ability to experience romantic and physical intimacy with each other was for marriage. It was to be experienced between a husband and wife in a monogamous relationship.It was given by God to Adam and Eve as husband and wife.A man and woman should be careful to keep from developing this romantic intimacy too early or too quickly before they married. What about "playing married" such as sleeping in the same room, sleeping in the same sleeping bag, staying in the same hotel room, living together (all of these activities without sex)?
It is like a rose bud that is opened in marriage and must be opened only a little before they are married, lest it develop their intimacy before the proper time. You are trying to have married intimacy and the benefits of God's wonderful plan of being married without actually being married, which God requires. If you are not mature enough to actually have gotten married, you're not mature enough to pretend your married.
Gen. "They shall become one flesh" refers not only to the physical union of two bodies, but the emotional intimacy that is part of that union as well. (Eph.-33) This was and has always been God's plan for romantic/emotional and sexual intimacy.
