I think there are a lot of misconceptions about celibacy and those who choose to be celibate. People chose to be celibate for many different reasons, but I am of course going to focus on the Bible and why it is such a gift. I think it's not until you take a serious vow to celibacy (whether for life or until marriage, whether you are a virgin or not) that you realize its beauty and you wonder why you previously saw it as a list of rules.

Celibacy is completely possible and can be highly enjoyable. HUH?!? Yes! Celibacy develops many good characteristics especially if you want to get married. Also, being a virgin does not mean one is celibate. Celibacy is a mindset, not merely a lack of engaging in sexual acitivities. Think of purity. You can be a virgin and be very impure in thoughts and in your heart and be a nonvirgin and have a very pure mind and heart. Celibacy is the same way and is closely linked to purity in this context.
