No sex before marriage is seen as a thing of the past but now women are choosing to remain celibate before marriage as a way to seek out a true gentleman.
We all know how devastating it can be when you’re really into a man and then once you’ve slept with him he drops off the face of the earth.
This is just one reason women are now choosing to wait until marriage before they have sex again.
It makes sense, a man can promise you the world and make you believe he’s ‘the one’ and then as soon as you’ve invited him into your bed, you’ll never hear from him again.
The fact that you’re asking him to wait until marriage is a huge commitment but could be a way of sorting the men from the boys.
But, if we’re being honest with ourselves, is this something that can be realistic in today’s society?
Relationships are a lot more disposable and it isn’t seen as such a bad omen to remain unmarried for life and have a number of relationships.
We’re also a much more liberal society, where casual sexual encounters are not seen as a massive black mark against your name, like they used to be.
And then there is the question of men. All men aren’t the same so it would be cruel to tarnish them with the same brush but many would run screaming if they heard they’d have to wait until marriage to have sex.
They know that there are plenty of women out there that would be willing to have sex with them so why wait so long on someone you’re not sure will be ‘the one’?
Although, give credit where credit is due, at least the majority wouldn’t string you along and have their bit on the side too.
In theory, this method is great. You abstain until you find man that’s worth your time and love, who will treat you with respect.
Sadly, in reality, it doesn’t have the same effect and could leave you old, withered and with plenty of cats to keep you company.
