Celibacy before marriage? It's actually still cool to desire it. Sex before marriage may seem like the only new cool but premarital celibacy still has great merits.
It may be common for couples to have sex before marriage, but a new study shows that couples who wait until marriage are happier with the quality of sex than couples who have intercourse before their vows.
The traditional/religious view that lovers should keep their hands off each other may no longer apply to many relationships these days.
This is because more young people are confidently exploring their sexuality and getting in tune with that part of themselves. Yeah, that is just fine for those who choose to roll that way.
While that may be a thing, it is also still OK to crave celibacy before marriage and if that is what your aim is, these are six reasons why it is such a great idea:
- Communication is better
Without sexual activity, time spent together will be used on other things such as more deep, soul-searching conversations, and stronger bonds.
- Better friendship
Where communication thrives, it is only normal for friendship levels to rise, too. So you and your partner are not just burning bright on the sparks flying when you kiss and have each other's hands roving over each other, you glow off the positive vibes created by the other person.
- Your connection is deeper
Imagine the closeness and intimacy built over shared dreams and expressed fears and revealed truths and secrets... it can only make you a lot closer and more intimate with your partner.
- No illusions
This is what you get when there is no chance of sex clouding your judgments in a relationship. You look for more ways to be a good boyfriend or girlfriend, none of which has anything to do with sex.
- Hurts less if you break up
For people who attach self-esteem to their body count, you can be sure that if anything happens, your body count would remain intact.
- You are exposed to more ways to show affection
Without sex, you’d have no option but to access other ways of expressing love and affection and this can only be good for your relationship.
