    Leviticus, discusses, Adultery, Incest, Beastiality, Male Homosexuality, and commands that a PRIEST marry a virgin.
    But where and what passages cover premarrital sex, among non married men and women.

    I have been reading the Bible in a year on the Roberts plan and either I have not hit it yet, or i missed that.
  2. If you go to bed with her you are responsible to marry her. If either of you are married or betrothed to someone else it is adultery. It is risky to make a commitment this way. I wouldn't recommend it.

    Deuteronomy 22:28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; 22:29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

    If you have sex with someone you have joined to them.

    I Corinthians 6:16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

    Casual sex is just plain fornication.

    I Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
    6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
    6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

    If you are tempted to have sex then it would be best to discuss it and have a justice of the peace marriage if you cannot wait for a formal ceremony. I know of more than one couple that have done this and then had the formal ceremony later to please the relatives.
