- Wedding: August 2012
How long were you waiting for? We were both virgins. I was 23 and Darling Husband was 27. We dated for 11 months and were married at 1year, 3 months together.
Did you wait with previous relationships? Yes. I never really had a serious boyfriend before him. He had a couple serious relationships but he waited through both of them as well.
What did you constitute as ‘waiting’ (Intercourse? All sexual activity? etc)? Almost all sexual activity. I didn’t even want to kiss until after we were engaged. He would kiss my hand and forehead but that was it until we got engaged. Then we would kiss, but that was the extent of it.
How much knowledge do you consider you have about sex? I feel like I had a fairly healthy knowledge of it. Both of us worked with abstinence groups all through high school/college plus reading themarriagebed.com and the blog, To Love, Honor and Vaccum were both really helpful for me. As far as BC, I have to be on it for other, fairly serious health issues anyway, so we never really had a choice. I would love to not be on it, but I like not living in constant pain better so I opt to stay on it.
Neither of us regret that we waited. It was hard for sure and our wedding night was awkward, but it was romantic too. I don’t have to worry about Darling Husband measuring me up to someone else (which I am so thankful for! Sex has not been easy for me because of the health issues and I know that it’s been hard on him too but we’re working through it together and it’s 100x better than when we got married even). Congrats on waiting! It’s an awesome decision 😉
