Yes, there are still people who wait until they are married before getting down and dirty for the first time. That’s not the reason for this post. We recently had someone in the store that was getting married for the second time, and she had yet to sleep with her husband-to-be. What?! How do you do that? By the way, this wasn’t his first marriage either.
They had been together for some time and were getting married in less than a month. She was picking out some stuff for the honeymoon and casually mentioned that they had kissed for the first time roughly a month prior. What?! How do you do that? (I know, I sound like a broken record.)
I am not judging what anyone chooses in their personal life. I think that what works for one person won’t necessarily work for another. Case in point, G and I got married less than two months after we met. We have been married for over sixteen years. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s always been worth it. Now, I would like to say that we waited until we got married to have sex, but that would be a load of crap. I did, however, wait till our second date. Yay, me! I will tell you, I would not have been able to marry someone I didn’t know if I was compatible with sexually. I have had plenty of guy friends in my life that I would have been emotionally compatible with. Big difference.
My question is this: Would you marry someone and not sleep with them first, especially if this were your second marriage? Send me your story. I would love to hear from you.
