- Wedding: November 2013
Chiming in here… well for me, both myself and my Mr are virgins and we both have decided to wait until after the marriage before we kiss or have sex. It is very hard sometimes to just not jump all over each other and want to do what married people do, but it truly is pleasing to God when we wait and keep our bodies sacared. Just think, when you are married, you’re legal in man’s eyes and you are blessed in God’s eyes to partake in sex. It can be frustrating to wait to do even a simple kiss, but i do thank God that we haven’t because it really helps us keep focus on what’s important: God, each other and our life day by day.
For those saying they don’t see the point in stopping if they already started.. It boils down to spiritual Godly conviction. Once you truly desire to follow God’s will and all He says, He’ll show you what is right and is wrong. He expresses fornication (sex outside of being married) as a sin, those who have previously involved in doing it, and now desire to serve God whole heartedly should indeed stop and wait till after the marriage. I look at it as a person who in the past has stolen. They were caught and punished or told about their wrongs and then later on they completely refrain from stealing. Doesn’t change the truth that they have stolen in the past, just changes the future because now they move on to doing the right thing that’s pleasing. (In the case of waiting, the pleasing option to God)
