I believe mental and other illnesses CAN BE caused by demons.

At the end of Matthew 4, we read that Jesus healed those who were demonized (demon possessed in some people's lingo) and those who were lunatick. The passage treats these as two different categories.

For me, I didn't want to marry a non-virgin because she'd been one flesh with another man. Theoretically, a widow could have been in my consideration set, but at my age back then, that wasn't really what I was looking for, either.

Men don't bond with just sex, but women bond via sex. So throughout history, male virginity either did not matter, or was considered a liability. Think of these women who have auctioned their virginity online. Would the same work with a man? No, of course not. Male virginity is not valuable. At best it can be neutral.

Men have traits in their nature that allow bonding. Not saying that men can't bond using sex, but even a man who has f***ed many women can still bond with a woman after it. A woman who has f***ed a hundred guys can't do the same. Men have traits like loyalty, duty, honor, character. They are much more apt to practice love instead of just feeling it, as women do. A man should never settle for a slut (non-virgin, with obvious exceptions like widows) because female virginity is needed for a woman to bond. Sluts, foreign and domestic, will say how they can be good partners, but this is not true. And if she can't keep it in her pants and save herself for her husband only, she is not capable or worthy of love.
