How Can A Ring Stop Teenagers From Having Sex?

Purity Ring

Especially in today's culture, it can be very difficult for teenagers and young adults to keep themselves from having sex until marriage. Something that has become more and more popular are purity rings, also known as chastity rings. They don't get rid of temptation, but they can help boys and girls remember their commitment to wait until marriage before having intercourse with someone.

Parents can also play a strong role in helping their kids decide if they want to make this commitment or not. However, this commitment is most effective when a teenager makes the decision to stay pure themselves.

If they do decide to make this promise, parents can get them a purity ring as a gift and symbol of their choice. A purity ring usually symbolizes someone's commitment to God; that they will stay pure until marriage and abstain from sex. By wearing this reminder on their finger, it really helps them to be more aware of their decisions.

Christians have really caught onto this growing movement of purity rings. Lots of churches have put programs into place where they teach the youth about the life choices they are making when having sex outside of wedlock. Often, youth groups will devote a whole month, usually February, to teaching the youth about how sex before marriage can affect you emotionally, physically and spiritually and that there are long-term effects that could one day take a toll on your marriage. They are then encouraged to take on this challenge and will hopefully see that it is possible. At the end of the month, the church might hold a "chastity service" where they publicly honor the teenagers making this choice. Usually speeches are made and this is where parents can present their child with a token gift such as a purity ring. Even though this is popular with Christians, you don't need to be Christian or religious at all in order to make this commitment or to talk with your kids about it.

Purity rings are usually worn on the ring finger on the left hand, symbolizing your promise to purity until it is exchanged with your wedding ring. You can also wear it on your right hand or on a necklace chain. There are many different styles for both guys and girls to choose from. So, take your time when choosing them. You can buy purity rings online or even go to a jewelry store to find one that you like. Below are a few purity ring categories that will give you a good start:

  1. Bob Siemon - This is a popular Christian jewelry designer who also has purity and promise rings available. His rings are usually made out of pewter or sterling silver and range in price from around $7 to $40. They usually have words engraved on the outside that say things such as, "True Love Waits," or "Saved by Grace."
  2. Spinner rings - These rings are unique and can be kind of fun. The ring stays on your finger and has an overlay that spins. Spinner rings are most popular with men; in fact more and more wedding rings can be found in this design as well.
  3. Hearts - Purity is a matter of the heart. So what better way to show that than by having hearts on your ring. Hearts usually look good and are a timeless symbol.
  4. Ichtus Motif / Fish Symbol - The ichtus motif, or Christian fish, has become a widely known Christian symbol. You'll see it on bumper stickers, tee-shirts, bible covers, etc. So it's no surprise that there are many purity rings with the ichtus symbol on them.
  5. True Love Waits - These rings came about from Southern Baptists in 1933. More recently, Josh McDowel has also released a message and book about how if you are looking for true love, you will be willing to wait until marriage. These rings have the words written on them "True Love Waits".
  6. Hebrew Rings - There is something about the Hebrew language that really stands out in people's minds. Having it written on a ring can be very classy looking. Some illustrations of what the ring might say are "I Will Wait for my Beloved".

This is just a short list of types of purity rings; of course there are many different styles to choose from. If you are interested in purity rings, be sure to visit our purity ring landing page. Purity rings might be simple in design, but can convey a very strong message.
