I Love My Girlfriend and Know She is the One For Me, but She Just Told Me She Isn’t a Virgin. What Should I do?

I love my girlfriend and know she is the one for me, but she just told me she isn’t a virgin. What should I do?

If I had the opportunity to get married and had to choose between two women—both believers, one a physical virgin but not really sensitive to God, the other not a physical virgin but one who has confessed and repented of her sin and is sensitive to God—I wouldn’t even have to think about it. I would marry the lady who’s not a virgin but is sensitive to God. You don’t love a person for her past, you love someone for who she is right now.
