If your teenage child asked you point blank "Were you a virgin when you got married?"
Would you answer honestly?
My dd has been going to a christian youth group on Wednesdays for a few weeks now and they were discussing "purity" last night and were told that anything other than virginity until marriage is a sin.
She asked me this morning if I was a virgin when I got married and I was a bit surprised and finally just told her that we were running late and I would talk to her this evening.
I was not a virgin. I wasn't even a virgin when I was her age (15). I am not ashamed of that, but am uncomfortable admitting that to her, but I don't want to lie either.
I have never preached abstinence until marriage (in fact I would prefer she live with her partner for a few years before getting married), but...
I guess I am not ready for my little girl to grow up...
