I would love to hear your story too. – Karen

Karen, My husband and I have been brought up in conservative homes and went to a christian college. Even though we went to a Christian college, we know of some couples from our school who didn’t wait to have sex after marriage or got pregnant. We felt we should do the right thing and wait and yes, we were virgins before we got married, and we have been married for 43 years now.  I’m not saying we didn’t have problems with our marriage, but I can say that we are truly both content with each other and things just get sweeter and sweeter as the years go by… – Heather


Dear Karen, My husband and I were both virgins when we married at a relatively young age (by today’s standards). I can personally attest to the great confidence that this provided both of us and still provides to this day.  Our marriage bed is undefiled and this beautiful intimacy is known only to each of us within the bounds of the marriage. We have now been married close to 25 years and are still very much in love (ok – I admit he drives me crazy sometimes and sometimes he gets sick of me for a day or two – but we have never faltered or wavered in our deep 


loyalty and love for each other).  I completely agree that this allows for a more contented view of marriage.  Isn’t it always the way though….that when we follow God’s path it leads to peace and joy and the ability to weather the storms. One aspect that I like to encourage others in – is to ensure that the intimacy of your marriage is not broken through flippant talk about this private part of your marriage with others.  Don’t get me wrong, I believe that in godly fellowship with friends we can encourage one another and even assist each other with problems of a delicate nature, but this should not extend so far as to give someone outside the marriage intimate details of our sexual relationship. – Krysten
