I think religion is a likely subtext in posts complaining that a fictional character has sex. Maybe there are other reasons to hate the idea of people having sex without being married, but I'm not sure what they might be.
A belief that people shouldn't do something unless they're willing and able to handle the potential consequences (namely, a child), for one.
