    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! πŸ™‚

    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?

    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.

    @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.”
