"Next year will be our 21st anniversary. No complaints at all. Love my wife and have 3 wonderful kids. I would not have done it any other way, was just how I was brought up." —wildhermit
"Our relationship is pretty amazing. Even though we saved it for marriage, we were both plenty educated on the mechanics of everything, and neither of us had any weird hang-ups or fears about it. From my perspective, sex is a really personal, spiritual thing and I'm so glad that we've only shared that part of ourselves with each other." —mtdna_array
"It's great. I was 29 when we got married. Never regretted waiting for a second." —GreatTragedy
"My friend and his wife waited until their marriage to get down. They planned on waiting a few years to have kids. A month later the pregnancy announcement hit Facebook. When I asked him what happened he said, 'My pull out game is not strong.'" —CoolRunner
"Things are great in our marriage. We were both virgins when we got married and we have enjoyed our sexual relationship a lot over the last 11 years. More than just the waiting, our ability to respect each other, work together toward common goals, and communicate clearly and kindly has helped us." —HomeFires

lol I mean things happen, but if it's only a few months i would just hold out and wait haha @danidee
definitely well said, I totally agree! it takes perseverance :) @dianes6711
@danidee nope wedding night it is. you never know what may happen between then and wedding night. One of my sons was engaged and she was pressing him to go ahead. Fortunately he didn't and since she called off everything he is so thankful that he waited. All my kids are waiting because one you give away you can't get it back.
What do you guys think about having sex when it's still a few amount of months before the wedding? My mom always told me that my parents waited, but then my older sister came into the world like six months later lol.
I do because the memories of past..experiences...is still strong enough to invade my mind occasionally... just wish my wife would have been my first and only

7 Scientific Reasons Why Sleeping Naked Is Really Good For You
For as long as I can remember, I’ve forgone traditional pajamas for the pajamas the Good Lord gave me — my skin. Much to the horror of my roommates, I sleep completely naked. I’ve never found this weird or out of the ordinary. It’s comfortable, easy and I spend less money on stupid clothing only my teddy bear and I see. Why would I put on pajamas when I can bask in the glory of nakedness, having only my sheets as the barrier between me and my beloved bed? Apparently, I am an outlier. According to a 2012 study, only eight percent of Americans sleep nude. It appears the majority of US citizens don’t fly by my “Naked And Free” mantra and prefer to keep their bodies encased in a sausage sleeve of flannel whilst they venture into dream land. Bah! Bah, I say! For your information, America, sleeping naked is actually really f*cking good for you. It improves your happiness, your quality of sleep and will even get you laid more often. What I’ve known for so long, science has finally confirmed. Here are seven perfectly logical, totally scientific reasons why you should sleep in your skivvies: You’ll get way better sleep. According to The American Academy of Sleep Medicine, your body temperature naturally declines as a part of your Circadian Rhythm as you sleep deeply. Wearing pajamas could disrupt this natural drop in temperature and, as a result, disrupt your body’s sleep cycle. Disruption in the natural decline of body temperature is also directly linked to insomnia. If you can’t cool down, you’re going to sleep like sh*t. By skipping the drawstring PJs, you’re really just helping your overall sleep improve. That’s just science. You can air out your lady parts. Jennifer Landa, MD, author of The Sex Drive Solution for Women says sleeping naked is healthy for your downstairs lady bits. Because your vagina has a climate similar to a tropical rainforest, it can be a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. By ditching underwear and pajamas, you allow your vagina the much needed aeration it requires to stay dry and healthy. And, as we all know, a healthy vagina is a happy one. You’ll feel sexier. Sleeping naked is plain old sexy. When you’re with your new boyfriend, there’s nothing nicer than waking up in buff, ready and eager for morning sex. Waking up without pajamas in the way automatically puts you in a sexy state of mind. Since you’ll be starting the first few minutes of your day slipping your naked body alongside your partner’s, you can bet your naked butt, you’ll feel a whole lot more confident. It also means you’re comfortable enough with yourself to let it all hang out (figuratively speaking… I think). A more confident you is a more beautiful you — and not just to yourself, but also to others. You’ll reduce your belly size. If you opt for sleeping in the buff, you could reduce the fat around your belly and even lower your cholesterol. According to the Huffington Post, your body cools down at night, increasing your growth hormones while simultaneously decreasing your levels of cortisol, which will result in “healthy sleep patterns.” The perfect night’s sleep would be comprised of two cycles: the first has your body recuperating with lower cortisol levels and the second sees your body working to increase these levels in preparation for the next day so that you might have energy when you wake up. If your sleep is interrupted (e.g. because of your uncomfortable pajamas), your body will naturally produce more cortisol than usual; the excess, in turn, is known to catalyze your appetite. Say goodbye to your diet and hello to that sleeve of cookies! Get ready for a lot more sex. If you sleep naked, you’re going to have more sex. It’s just logical. According to Dr. Landa: Sleeping naked encourages sex and sexier relationships are happier relationships. I couldn’t agree more! I mean, think about it, if you’re naked already, don’t you think your chances of getting in a hump session would drastically improve? And, naturally, with more sex, you and your partner’s intimacy will only increase — especially when the hormone Oxytocin is introduced into the situation. Oxytocin, as the Huffington Post notes, reduces stress levels, lowers your risk of depression and leads to a load of other health benefits that might seem completely unrelated to you and your partner naked spooning. Who knew being naked could “reduce intestinal inflammation”? If you have no clothing barriers, what barricade do you even have? You won’t have to take a shower in the morning. If there’s one thing girls hate to do, it’s shower. And if there’s one thing a human person hates, it’s showering first thing in the morning, as it forces you to wake up a full 20 to 30 minutes earlier. But if you don’t wear pajamas, you’ll stay cool throughout the night, drastically increasing the likeliness of a good hair day the following morning. If you get too hot in your sleep, you’re going to sweat… and if you sweat, your hair is going to look greasy. And greasy only looks good on food. It’s just easier. When it comes to #TeamBed, we’re all just trying to get up in those comfy pillows and blankets as quickly as we possibly can. Putting on pajamas inherently means more work: You have to take off your clothes, pick out your jammies, and then put them on. That might seem like a lazy thing to say, but sometimes the closet (or the kitchen, or the bathroom) is just too far away. After #thestruggle of a 9-to-5 workday, I’m not looking to do anything to make me wait for sleep. Nada. http://elitedai.ly/1aJnWl5
So True Marriage Quote
Can this quote not be more true? It's so simple, yet when followed for its wisdom, there's no telling how big, bright and beautiful your relationship could be. This one pertains to marriage, but start and stop there? I think this is true of all relationships, regardless of marriage status. Some couples choose not to marry at all. And, for years, gay couples didn't even have a chance at marriage. All I'm saying is, spend your time developing your relationship. No matter how far along, how deep, etc., take time to build it. Just because you're married one day, doesn't mean you know all there is to know about your spouse. Bring back the dating days of frenzied love and lust. And don't do it because it's Valentine's Day (coming up). Do it year-round and because you genuinely love this person! Okay, that's all. I'm done soapboxing! hahaha @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @wonyeop316 @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @Danse @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @InPlainSight @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster@AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @tessstevens @paulisadroid @alywoah @jordanhamilton @nicolejb @LAVONYORK @raquelArredondo
5 Things Men Truly Look For In A Wife
Marriage usually isn't the first thing on a guys mind. Let's face it. Most guys aren't looking for marriage before a certain age and those are just straight forward facts -- but, what we do know is that the thought crosses their mind ever so often. Every guy knows what he looks for in a woman and a wife, no matter how nonchalant he may seem according to the specific topic. We all know what we like, no matter how much we deny it. If you're curious about what most men look for in a wife, well your wishes have been granted. Keep scrolling if you dare and get inside the head of the man. Someone who will support him and all his endeavors. Whether you agree with his decisions or not, every guy wants that one person who will be down to ride regardless of the circumstances. 'For richer or for poor', remember? Someone who accepts him flaws and all. Nobodies perfect. Understand that. You are both a work in progress. Someone worth fighting for. It won't always be easy, but it will be worth it. Communication is key. If you feel a certain way, speak up. He will appreciate that more than you know. Marriage is not a one way street. Someone who matches his fly. Looks aren't everything, we get it. But who wouldn't want a trophy and someone who can make the sun shine on the gloomiest of days? Someone worth growing with. Growing old with someone is one of the most beautiful journey's two people can ever go on. 'Till' death do us part'. It sounds pretty extensive, but if you're down to ride -- they will be too. Buckle up and enjoy the ride. Men don't ask for too much. The feelings are mutual.
