14 Young People Explain Why They’re Waiting for Marriage: ‘I Want to Have Sex But I’m Determined to Stay a Virgin Until Marriage’

I am a wee bit concerned with the one teenager who wrote on his (or her) placard that he thinks waiting for marriage to have sex “will be worth it.” If he means to say that honeymoon sex will be great, he needs to think again…

I have too many links on this blog to stories by people who were virgins at marriage but the sex turned out to be terrible (see (Link): this story for example).

I am not saying it is wrong for a person to choose to stay virginal until marriage, only you need to realize that doing so is not a guarantee that the sex will be amazing.

    Why are you waiting for marriage?

    Individuals who choose to refrain from having sex before marriage are often confronted with this particular question — and some are now speaking out. Using the popular smartphone application Whisper, many young people have turned to the social network to explain to others why they are choosing to wait.

    Whisper guarantees its users absolute privacy and, as a result, some of the confessions are raw and powerful.

One thought on “14 Young People Explain Why They’re Waiting for Marriage: ‘I Want to Have Sex But I’m Determined to Stay a Virgin Until Marriage’”

  1. I definitely feel for and feel like the guy who said he’s afraid to date. I feel like a lot of girls would reject me because they wouldn’t want to be with someone who’s trying to wait. I have other reasons why they would reject me, but my virginity I fear may be my biggest turn-off

    However, if it is indeed a turn-off, then I am okay with that. I just will be undateable. My virginity has been about Christ, not some girl.

    I do have to say that there is more to making a relationship work than sex. So much focus on that in & out of church. Maybe it’s just me, but I tend to like a lot more things than sex in general, for instance music and writing. Why is there no focus on that in relationships?.
