Sin and redemption aren't my line of work, mandy. Check the recent postings for the recent excellent response in a message about gay issues, about misusing biblical textx too literally, and as a source of unhappiness, rather than of comfort and fruitful guidance. Many people, whether or not they are particularly religious, feel some qualms and doubts after their first sexual experience. I thought that the primary message within the christian bible was "GOd is Love", and that genuine love is a valued and honoured thing. Now, I don't think love has to be expressed sexually, but it can be, and an act which did so, is hardly as sinful as all the deliberately cruel and greedy things far more people do far more often, without regret opr guilt that maybe they need to feel.
Forgive yourself, and surely God will, too, and maybe concentrate on other ways to express your mutual love, until marriage ?
