You logic is presuming that people form their views on marriage before they form their views on sex.
No, my logic presumes people form views on marriage before they form views on sex before marriage. Presumably they'd have views on sex too, for this.

What I mean, though, is that people who wait until marriage is more likely to tell us about the marriages of the kind of person who chooses to wait, rather than the direct effect of waiting. Choosing to wait is more likely to be an effect of their personal viewpoints, and since those clearly place a lot of importance on marriage (assuming they place any importance upon sex), it seems to stand to reason that they'd be more willing to make a marriage work.
