Can there be a point in getting a HPV vaccination if your waiting till your married to lose your virginity?

Absolutely Yes. There is no guarantee that the person you marry is a virgin and was never exposed to the human papilloma virus (hpv). Even if he is your only exposure, you could become infected and would be at increased risk for cervical cancer.
Yes. Certain strains of hpv are communicated by kissing and cause throat cancer. Furthermore 1 out of 11 college aged females is sexually assaulted. Nothing will heal the emotional scars of sexual assault but at least that is one less thing to worry about.
Real world thinking. There is good data that a up to 1/4 females will be sexually used/abused/raped in their lifetime starting in childhood. Getting a vaccine as soon as it is known to provide lifelong protection against cancer is realistic. It would be wonderful if we never had to deal with the bad side of sexuality but vaccines are insurance. You plan for the bad so the outcome is never as bad is it could be.
