I am a 21 year old student who is currently a virgin. I have promised to keep myself until I am married. Unfortunately, my boyfriend has been disturbing me for sex. He has threatened to leave me if I refuse to have sex with him and I don’t want to lose him. My question is whether something is wrong with me as many of my friends are having sex with their boyfriends.

There is nothing wrong with you. In fact, you should be commended for standing by your conviction despite what is happening around you. Apart from the dangers of infection and unwanted pregnancy, premarital sex does not guarantee long standing relationship as many unions have crashed even after sex. If your boyfriend really loves you, he will abide with your decision and wait until you are married before asking for sex.
