This will probably get a bad response but... It's a lot easier that way. Would have saved me a lot of money and heartache.
@GFDOOM, why would you get a bad response? It's an action that shows loyalty, respect, and responsibility in a relationship.
@TheStarHawk, my main problem with that is people who try to force it on others. Do you and your SO want to do it? Awesome! Should you refuse to teach sex-ed and tell people they're going to hell if they don't? Not a chance. It's that association that people dislike.
@GFDOOM, yeah my fiancée and I both decided to wait. We have been together 3.5 years so far. I don’t really regret waiting but also it low key sucks.
@vonwulf337, it does low key suck but that's how I got in the situation I did. I am unfortunately an impatient man.
@GFDOOM, also maybe I’m unpopular opinion wait till you are (semi) prepared to have a kid.
@Rtas Vadum, people always seem to relate things to their worst possible versions muslim=terrorist, people who wait=bible thumping zealots, autistic=weirdo who can’t communicate and requires help to survive, psychopath/ sociopath= maniac serial killer, etc. it’s a shame people feel the need to jump to the worst possible conclusion if someone different from their own view
@TheStarHawk, because sex is an important part of a relationship, so knowing if you’re compatible before signing a contract is a good idea? Same with living together
@TheStarHawk, because there are many idiots here who think that if you have traditional values or religious convictions you’re some ignorant person.
@GFDOOM, statistics show you are right. Marriages of people who don’t cohabitate and jump into sex during dating have a high rate of happiness than those who hook up early (and lead to divorce).
@Cpzombie, real love is never based on sexuality. Sexuality is a minority portion (ask my 70th anniversary couple in my church). Did you consider that the compatibility argument and “test drive” could be a myth or fear? As someone below commented “I don’t care about the sex. I just want to be loved.” Interesting that almost all the people who long for sex are those that desperately want to be known and loved.
I don't care about the sex. I just want to be loved.
The delusion is in thinking sex free of marriage is sex free of responsibility.
The hookup culture is demented. Sex was designed for a man and woman in marriage.
@jaski, they didn’t teach me this in design school.
@Banetersaurus Rex, what did they teach you?
*flips bible pages faster*
Oh yeah, talk deuteronomy to me
i’ll take that sex upfront m’lady
