Nepal being a culturally rich country also carries some orthodox beliefs. Thus, not my individual opinion but a perspective by large indicates the pre-marital sex is wrong. However, social acceptability on the same varies from place to place. In remote areas, it is still a taboo whereas in urban areas couples are open to the idea of cohabiting. If we look at it from a medical perspective, sex is a biological need and has health benefits. Society is aware that it’s common amongst couples in a relationship but still shy away from discussing it.
