Day 03 — Regardless of my current status, do I believe a person should save themself for marriage…

 

I believe that sex Is more an act of love and should only be performed with a person that you believe in and can spend the rest of your life with you. This may be more because  of my  culture and upbringing,    Marriage is more than sex and  it is not like  a car which has to be test-driven before a buy.   When two people commit themselves to marry  then there is more than a physical relationship to it – there is friendship, bonding and love for each other.  There is also a high level of trust wherein  both partners give each other freedom to achieve their dreams.

Many people presume that ‘sex’ is all there is to marriage and that is why we see so many broken marriages, prostitution, sexually transmitted diseases etc.  Understanding and compatibility are vital to marriage – it is a relationship which is more than a first crush or a platonic relation.

A lot of considerations which are not first apparent crop up in a marriage – culture, language, religion which friends take for granted but later on in life they are unable to adjust.

So yes, if you intend going for a marriage or a long-lasting relationship – it requires a commitment and both parties have a role to play to make the relationship work and last!  If there has been an affair before marriage it is best for partners to be open about it and get to terms rather than opting for a life of secrecy and mis-trust.

    “to be open about it and get to terms rather than opting for a life of secrecy and mis-trust.”

    Your comment makes me think of a movie I saw yesterday where a woman’s husband of 40 years has passed away, and after his death she finds out that he had many secrets, including debt that left her with nothing in her old age. Her question was, “what is the point of marriage if you can’t share”, and she realized that her 40 years of trust and devotion has sadly been betrayed. Her question really stayed with me.
