No sex until marriage

Were you or someone you know a virgin until they got married? How old were you/they?

I know a few people who waited, but ended up marrying young (in some cases younger than most) so yeah they waited but not very long lol. I wanna hear of someone who waited 30+ years!

  • My BIL claims him and his fiance are waiting but I know they've had sex. They are lying just so they can marry in the temple. I don't know a single person who waited to be honest.

  • GivingTree - Nobody said anything about "loosing points". It was simply an observation I made, that most people who "wait" marry young.

  • I was 21 when I married and was a virgin until 2 weeks before my wedding. My sister is 28 and still a virgin.

  • I don't know anybody who waited 30 years, I thought I was good I waited till I was 22. That's good considering the pressures of sex. But, I didn't wait till I was married. I think it's a nice thought but not realistic.

  • I did not have consensual sex until I was married, but I got married at 18.

  • My husband's first wife was technically a virgin. They had other forms of sex (oral on her & manual). She was 24 when they married and he was 27.

  • I know a woman, my cousin's wife, who claimed to be. She told him she was having a procedure to have her hymen removed so she could enjoy their honeymoon but I highly doubt she was considering things that came to light later.

  • when I was a teen I had a "big sister" who was a virgin at 35 and finally found her man at 40 the whole time I did not think it was true til I got older and found out some people really do believe in no sex until marriage
