Girlfriend (F/21) suddenly wants to wait until marriage and I (M/20) need advice on how to handle it

This could be seen as healthy or unhealthy but I'm not social and I don't use social media despite my age. It's harder for people like me to find fulfilling relationships

Even without social media, you can have healthy social network. Take up volunteering, join a club in your area, take up a team sport.

It's not really to preserve anything other than lifting the religious stigma attached to her world view once she gets married. She also doesn't take birth control cause her parents are controlling so there's a fear of pregnancy.

And this is often a recipe for disaster. Tons of people from conservative backgrounds continue having trouble with sex well into their marriage. They can never get completely rid of all the negativity surrounding this huge aspect of life.
