So I would like to stop everything from the end of August, which will be 3 weeks and 2 days on our wedding. But he wants to only wait two weeks. We have a really great sex life, but I just think this will make it a little extra awesome after having to wait a bit for it 🙂
I know one week isn’t a whole lot of difference – but we can only manage about 5 days without it generally, and tops 2 weeks. We have had to go 3 weeks without once, and it was so awesome when we finally got to again!
I am posting this in my “anonymous” username as I’m too embarassed to use my usual one!

We abstained for about three months before the wedding. But it wasn’t entirely due to making it more special. My Darling Husband was rediscovering his spiritual side and didn’t want to continue having sex out of wedlock, which didn’t make a lot of sense to me since we were together for five years and so close to being married. I respected it, but it kind of sucked, honestly. We were less intimate in general for that period of time, less kissing, touching, anything that would tempt him.
So! A few weeks is probably fine! 🙂

Maybe a day. If you have already been doing it for significant amount of time, I don’t really see the point in stopping before the wedding.

There isn’t a none option, haha. I don’t see why you’d stop because you’re about to get married.

@ieatunicorns: “If you have already been doing it for significant amount of time, I don’t really see the point in stopping before the wedding.”
Agreed. There should be a “None” option in the poll.

@Mrs.KMM: Yeah, we didn’t abstain. If anything, sex was our #1 go to stress reliever in the weeks leading up to the day when all the craziness hit!
My sister stopped before the wedding to make the wedding night more special – I think it was only 2 weeks, but still. When you’ve been together for years, it’s pretty hard to stop, so I commend you!

I’m voting for “none.” Why would we stop?

I proposed this idea to Fiance…the longest I could get him to agree to was 5 days…..so we’ll see 😛

Just a thought, if you haven’t had sex for a significant amount of time before the wedding won’t your first time as a married couple be short lived and based on sex rather than intimacy? I just think when Darling Husband and I don’t have sex for a while, it’s more about being horny and he gets off a lot quicker. I wanted the first time I had sex as a married couple to be slower and intimate.

@ieatunicorns: I assure you this isn’t for any kind of religious reasons, it’s just simply so we know we will have sex on our wedding night. Makes it a little more interesting!
@roxy821: Nope, ours is always slow and intimate!
I created this to see how long people who waited…have waited. Not to be hassled about why I would like to stop. We aren’t people who will have sex everyday of our 2 week long honeymoon, so we thought it’d be nice to stop for a bit to ensure we do get to enjoy it on our wedding night.

@iheartnerds: I commend you! That would have been so difficult!

@angrybee: I agree – it’s kind of a fun idea stopping a bit before 🙂 I say go for it!

@angrybee: I don’t think anyone is trying to hassle you. The problem is that your poll and question implies that everyone will abstain for some length of time. You really should have put an option for “none” or a caveat like “for those of you who decided to abstain.”

@LauraFaye4411: Clearly by the title it means people who chose too.. i am in no way implying everyone will or has done this. I just don’t appreciate people being rude, if I choose to stop that’s my choice 🙂

@sara_tiara: Haha – I just saw this! My partner looked at me when I asked like “do we have to???”, but then he thought about it and liked the idea 🙂
