      @tara_kade outlier is an appropriate term when looking at statistical variance. The definition when quickly googled "a person or thing situated away or detached from the main body or system." Asexuals in this case are the noun that is detached from the main population.

      @jeffrojodaniel Of course and had the comments been something akin to "the statistics of marriage longevity in relation to the pre or post marriage sexual relationships does not include asexuals because they are an outlier to that population" that terminology would've been what should've been used. Having said that asexuals are not relevant to this topic because asexuals do not engage in sexual relationships and therefore need not make the decision to or not to have sex before marriage. In discussing the longevity of their relationships statistics regarding them would apply to the minority. However I do understand your point and you are absolutely correct in the context you stated. Thank you for your feedback :)

    @thumper4x4 @jb043 This is such a close one! On the 24 hours mark upon the completion of your debate (Tue 10th Oct 9.30 PM EST) we had a tie on community votes 3-3.
    We need at least two votes to declare the winner so we'll bring at least one more judge for the final decision.
