I meant to post about this article a while back but it completely slipped my mind until now.
I can't decide if it's sweet. Or stupid.
So, in case you can't be bothered going to the link, the article was about a couple in the States who hadn't even KISSED before they got married.
I mean, I know some people don't believe in SEX before marriage . . . but to not have even KISSED? I don't understand it at all.
To me, the kissing is actually pretty important in a relationship. Even more important, dare I say, than the sex! There's been times when I have quite fancied a guy until we've kissed . . . and then I've totally went off him! Or perhaps I've not been SURE how I felt about a guy and then the kissing convinced me I DID actually fancy him.
For me, the kissing kind of . . . I guess cements the attraction. Shows me for definite whether or not I DO like the guy. Which I guess is also why the "snogging zone" I've mentioned before can also kick in at this stage. Because it occasionally shows me I've bet on the wrong horse.
What if I got married to a guy I never kissed and it turned out he was like a human vaccuum cleaner? Or a face licker? Would that qualify as a good reason to have the marriage annulled? Probably not, because it would probably be considered my own fault for not having testdriven the bloke first. Well, that's what I think anyway!
I do hope the first kiss was all they dreamed of though. Especially after they resisted temptation for so long - even ensuring that they "snuggled" sitting up!
The thing that made me laugh most about the article though was this paragraph . . .
He found other ways to show LaLuz his passion—like by cleaning her car. And washing the dishes.
Yep, there's passion for you.
Mind you, perhaps if I could find a guy who liked to wash the dishes, I could overlook the no-kissing-until-marriage rule.
Or perhaps not . . .
