Thanks for posting your query.
1) Masturbation is sexual stimulation of a person's genitals, usually to the point of orgasm. After masturbation a person may feel of exhaustion ...this is natural and not related with feeling of guilt feeling.
2) There are few advantages of masturbation.
a) Masturbation is accepted as a healthy practice and safe method for sharing
pleasure without some of the dangers that can accompany intercourse.
b)Masturbation may increase fertility during intercourse.
c)In males, masturbation flushes out old sperm with low motility from the male's
genital tract. The next ejaculate then contains more fresh sperm, which have
higher chances of achieving conception during intercourse.
d)Masturbation can relieve depression and lead to a higher sense of self-esteem.
So don't take it as bad habit and get worried.
3) This will also not affect your future married life.
Take care and enjoy

Thanks for appreciating.
If during orgasm, you are ejaculating semen then masturbation with dildo/ vibrator is also helpful.
Thanks again,
