In high school, I didn’t think kissing before marriage was a big deal. Then I changed my mind in college after reading so many of those “Christian dating or no dating” books. I thought it was cool how some people made their first kiss be at their wedding. It seemed kind of sweet. Of course, I didn’t think everyone should follow that rule, just that it was nice to be sure you weren’t kissing someone else’s future wife or husband.
This year though, I really wonder. If I started going together with some guy, would he be ok with me saving my first kiss for the wedding? Shouldn’t it be more natural? Like if you know you’re going to get married, wouldn’t it be ok? It seems kind of unnatural to hold off until the wedding cuz what if you’re in some romantic place, and he just proposed, and you want to kiss, and the emotions just keep building up? It seems more natural to just have a little innocent kiss. And then….at least at the wedding, you’re not totally clueless about kissing.
Then during the wedding night, would it be ok to just hold off on the “you know what?” Cuz both of you are most likely clueless if you’re both Christians, and since you supposedly have never kissed……………..it’s kinda weird to just go all out in one night. At least, I would appreciate it if we took at least a week or two taking it slow.
Wow….this was such a weird post. I just started thinking of this cuz I had a discussion about it with one of my friends, and I tried to rethink my “no pre-marital kissing” philosophy.
P.S. I’m sooooo excited!!!! I bought the BBC series of Jane Eyre!!! I love BBC adaptions because they stay the closest to the real book. heehee
