    The world (specifically American society) is a very upside down and dark place. There are some pockets of light, but the general trend right now is yes, very sexual and very selfish. Its all about you and what you feel. 

    Every person runs the risk of infidelity both as an initiator and a victim. Your not crazy! I don’t believe in that if “your a good person” or if you color within the lines it saves you from anything.

    Personally- I’m a Jesus fan and I’m saved not through my own doings or behavior but through Christ and I use grace to get my my days and it is my desire to remain faithful, pure, modest and to not idolize the the majority of corruptive influences in the world.

    I’m a fan of PBS…lol Just keep working on communication with Fiance ! let him know all your insecurities and your emotional issues. The better you understand each other the stronger the relationship.

    Not every relationship includes cheating. I’ve never cheated, or been cheated on. 

    As you say, you haven’t always been faithful, and yet you feel that you are still a good person. Probably most of the cheaters that you know (or know of) aren’t necessarily bad people, either. As you say, people make mistakes. That doesn’t make them evil. 

    I believe in karma, too, but I don’t think it means that your Fiance will cheat on you. You’re already suffering by worrying so much about it.

    The world is mostly good people – I honestly believe that. Just live with integrity and don’t stress. I know, easy to say. 🙂

    Agreed. I think although it COULD happen to anyone, it doesn’t have to. I’ve been cheated on before I met my SO, and I was a guy-hater for a few years. Up till my man came along, no guy ever showed me they were worth trusting. Then along came A. and my life changed for the best! 

    Cling on to the hope that there are still faithful and strong marriages out there, and you can have one! (I like PBS too)

    Also: I think jealousy is normal when you really love someone. That doesn’t mean you don’t trust them, though!

    I agree with you that the world (aka American culture) seems disgusting nowadays. I mean, literally, no class. Everything’s just so COARSE. I feel like it’s the influence of reality TV and Internet porn and facebook and stuff like that. Things that used to be private (like fetishes or sex acts) are public.

    I’m waiting for marriage to be with my Fiance, and I had a couple of friends who were also waiting (which I know is not typical). However I recently found out one of the girls surrendered her V card on a one night stand and is going around sleeping with a lot of guys now. She said to me, “I don’t know why I waited!” Obviously it’s none of my business and it’s not like she’s eating puppies but my gut feeling was, oh no they got you too! She used to make a big deal out of her Christian faith. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

    It definitely makes me scared. I know intellectually that my Fiance is not the type to be hooking up with people on Craigslist or downloading porn and I wouldn’t ever turn gross, either – but really, is anybody immune from the shit we are swimming in, in this culture?

    ETA: Speaking of PBS, have you tried NPR? It’s awesome, not to mention a good way to avoid the bumping and grinding music
