Honestly, I agree with @jaylii9. I think there are a lot of couples who don’t have sex on their wedding night – most are just too exhausted (or drunk) after the reception to even think about sex. I know sex was the LAST thing on my mind! It was nice to get a good night’s sleep and then make up for it in the morning. 😉

We’re doing this! We haven’t done it since April! It has really amped up our anticipation level!
Another main reason I wanted to wait for a while is because I’m Catholic and believe sex before marriage is technically a sin, and I wanted to kind of purify myself and make it sincere when I confess it tomorrow and get washed clean!

@marjojo: Fiance and I are doing the same thing b/c we’re Catholic. We wanted to be sincere.

My personal opinion is that suddenly removing sex from a relationship that was going fine until then can cause tension between the couple if they are both not 100% for it. There are so many other causes of stress and tension leading up to the wedding, I don’t understand why anyone would want to add another one. On our wedding night, we were exhausted and so ready for bed – and we were back to the hotel by 10:15!!
I guess it’s good if both people are 100% for it, but if one person is hesitant, it can cause tension and you might not feel as connected as usual.

We’ll be taking a break, but not because we planned on it. We live 2 hours apart, and the month before the wedding I’m going to be back home finishing up last minute details and getting ready to move. So, we probably won’t get a chance for some serious alone time beforehand. That’s why we’ll probably be taking a break. 😉
