"The temptation of Catholic married people to dismiss the lives of Catholic singles as prolonged adolescence must be resisted. The so-called “Single Scene” is packed with people who, unlike the majority of my Catholic single readers, have little interest in getting married; they are out for whatever sexual comforts they can get. This means Catholic singles are usually in an environment in which premarital sexual relations are considered standard for any dating relationship; even Catholic men find themselves left lonely after explaining that they are saving sex for marriage. To resist the temptations and dangers of the Single Scene, unmarried Catholics need the support and friendship of other Catholics: clerical, married and religious."
