I honestly believe the bible meant anything that can lead to sexual arousal and definitely no sexual activity.

The KJV says it is good for a MAN not to touch a WOMAN. The next verse says but let every MAN have his own WIFE. That alone shows that a MAN is NOT to touch a WOMAN until she is his WIFE. The word adultery means when a MARRIED person physically romantically touches another people that is not their own spouse. Fornication is people doing stuff before they are married. I have been married for a little over a year now, and me nor my husband did anything physically romantic with each other or anyone else til we were married. It is the most wonderful feeling that he never had his hands on another woman and I never had another guy touching me. Thanks for reading. Please don't comment if you are trying to defend yourself. The Bible says what it says.

what does "touch " mean in the kjv I Corinthians 7 1? Does it literally mean to touch, or does it mean touching your boyfriend or girlfriend in an inappropriate way? Is holding hands before you are married wrong? I NEED TO KNOW!!! Can anyone help me? Please and thank you.
