How does God perceive virginity and the first sexual encounter shared between a newlywed couple after the sacrament of marriage?

God created sexuality as a normal and pleasurable aspect of marriage to be experienced within the Holy Mystery of Matrimony and to be a source of strength and love in the marital bond. God sees us all as pure, undefiled virgins, despite our imperfections and sins. That is why He instituted the Holy Mysteries to absolve us and gift us with a new beginning in life with Him as often as possible.
