Skip to comments.Do virgins have happier marriages?

Hollywood megastar and major heart-throb he may be, but Tom Hanks has never embraced the girl-a-minute lifestyle of many celebrities. In a recent interview he admitted to only ever having had two lovers.
This can hardly have been for want of opportunity. Having few physical relationships has been a conscious choice - and one that has made him, at 46 years old, a blissfully happy married man.
'Never in my life have I put out the vibes of a ladies' man or rake,' he said recently. 'I know that I'm a celebrity and, along with that, will come attention from women, but I don't promote it.'
Today, there's so much pressure on us to gain sexual experience before settling down, that we take it almost as an essential requirement. But could the secret of relationship happiness be found in having fewer sexual experiences?

“heart throb”???????LOL. He was never that. But he was an actor with credibility.....but..Hanks was toast after that ridiculous “The Da Vinci Code ‘ movie. Hanks sold OUT on that one. Bummer for him.
Well, no. Most families find that one or more of the partners remaining a virgin after marriage is not conducive to martial bliss..... 8<)
Not marital blush.
“Flee from fornication” is practical wisdom and has been for thousands of years. No surprise.
i wouldn’t think so, I mean after marriage no sex sounds a bit mundane, what about having kids, the two things really do sorta work together.
Doesn't anybody do basic fact checking today? Tom Hanks is 54.
Of course virgins have better marriages. They have practiced sexual self-discipline, so they are better able to maintain fidelity in marriage. And they have spent time actually getting to know one another.
Excuse the libpig on the right.
I’ve always thought he had pig eyes. Not that many women would care.
Hanks started out as a comedian and many comics become jokesters because they aren’t physically attractive so they have to find another way to meet girls.
I do wonder sometimes if Hanks would be a liberal Democrat if it weren’t for Hollywood. He’s pro-military, pro-U.S.and apparently faithful to his wife. Those are not typical liberal Democrat positions but I think Hanks knows je jas to be liberal to work in Hollywood (see Gibson, Mel) so like any good actor he plays the role of the liberal to keep the leftist loonies off his back and insure he can continue to make movies.
Hanks did some good stuff............then he threw it all away with that Di Vinci code BS. Sad.
His acting trajectory is very unusual. Hanks started off doing slapstick comedies and fluff 80s romantic comedies. I’m not sure when he suddenly became a De Niro-type actor.
Is it only me, or does the ultra liberal, Obama loving Tom Hanks sound a little conservative on this?
Ask bin Laden’s 72 virgins. ;)
I think if a partner has little sexual experience, it does help, because his/her marriage partner is the only one she knows.
However, it’s more important that the person you pick will treat you well and honour you and that you treat the partner well and honour them.
I had just checked his bio on IMDb.com before I read your post. I checked it, because I was sure he was at least a half decade older than I am. It's amazing how lazy "journalists" are.
However, its more important that the person you pick will treat you well and honour you and that you treat the partner well and honour them.
I will simply say that it is hypocrisy when liberals pose as being 'pro-choice', yet openly mock those who make a choice to be a virgin until marriage.
