Waiting till the wedding night getting married the right way
Fox News ^ | 9-14-12 | Steven Crowder

Posted on 09/15/2012 12:00:12 PM PDT by STARWISE

As anyone who’s read my abstinence column here at Fox News Opinion could guess, my wedding is something that I’ve looked forward to for quite some time. After having tied the knot at the end of August, I can now say beyond all shadow of a doubt, that it was everything I’d hoped and prayed that it would be since childhood. (I’d also prayed to be bitten by a radioactive spider and develop sticky hands, but… I was an idiot.)

Let me preface this column by saying this: my wife (I have to get used to saying that) and I not only waited sexually in every way (no, we didn’t pull the Bill Clinton and technically avoid “sex” sex,) but we didn’t shack up as live-ins and most importantly, we courted each other in a way that was consistent with our publicly professed values.

We did it right.

Feeling judged? I couldn’t care less. You know why? Because my wife and I were judged all throughout our relationship. People laughed, scoffed and poked fun at the young, celibate, naive Christian couple.

In an ever coarsening, crude and immoral world, how wonderfully admirable and joyously refreshing! How sad it is that this tale is unique. God bless them with a lifetime of good health, fulfillment, joy, and healthy children, and their staunch guiding principles and Christian faith to withstand an ever imposing fallen culture.

Good for him. With a sound foundation, like this, they stand a good chance of being one of those couples that will have been married 50 years.

It is truly wonderful that he chose to save himself for marriage. I would now encourage him to cultivate his relationship with the Lord in such a way that it leads to love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

My wife and I were married in the mid-1980s and we also did not "consummate" our marriage until after the vows were taken. Almost two years of dating beforehand. However, I wish I could say that we consummated on our wedding night. Fact is, we were both wiped out and fell asleep almost as soon as our heads hit the pillows. I think the wedding reception, the bottles of champagne and all those other drinks played a factor. What a waste of a $300 a night honeymoon suite!

Well, at least we've had the past quarter century to make up for lost time.

50 year anniversary today and believe me, it had nothing to do with what we did or did not do before our wedding.

Staying celibate until marriage is only impossible for the children of liberals and non Christians. In almost all cases, you will find that the children of conservatives and Christians remain virgins until they are marries.

I remember a story from my youth. A couple got married and the morning after the wedding they were eating breakfast when the wife apologized for not getting him a gift. He stopped her to say that they gave each other the best possible wedding gift on their wedding night, their virginity.

That probably sounds pretty hokey today, but I would be willing to bet they had a long, happy marriage.

10,000 cheers for a wise young couple. My wife and I did the same thing back in 1984. Our kids once joked that it was a good thing we found each other because nobody else would have wanted us.

Our kids also decided that saving it for marriage was the best way to go. We have a gorgeous little grandson with two loving parents and a granddaughter on the way who enjoys the same advantage.

I've got him beat.

I've never had sex.

Ever.

Even through 137 marriages.

What if you get a woman pregnant and she chooses an abortion?

I cannot. I have the same genital definition as GI Joe.

Meanwhile Sandra Fluke is crying because she can’t afford Starbucks lattes and a dozen box of condoms. :P
