So I read a status today on one of my friend's Facebook page that kinda got me thinking. The status referenced being happy to hear when a man says that he will wait to have sex until he is married etc. So my wheels got to turnin again. Do men really wait?

It's such an uncommon, unheard of thing, that it really caught me off guard. I hear of women waiting all the time, I myself am waiting so it's no surprise when I hear one of my girlfriends talk about it, but I don't think I know of many men or hear of many men waiting to have sex until they are married.

I read a study that says out of the 38,000 Americans polled 95% of them have had premarital sex. I also found this to be interesting, in the Christian community, 80% of young adults between the age of 18-29 have had premarital sex, and all of this has been going on since the 1950's. With numbers like these you too may be surprise when you hear of ANY person saying they are waiting especially a man. On the escapist portal dot com I ran across a poll that purposed the question "Should people wait until they're married to have sex?" The response? "7.4%(86 people) said YES, 63.9% (746 people) said NO and 28.4% (331 people) said NO, But they should be in a serious relationship fist. How would you guys answer this question?

I first saw this picture circulating on Facebook. I wondered to myself.."Is this still as popular in 2012 as it once was 20 years ago?" What happened that made things change? So I ask you, does it surprise you that there are men out there that wait to have sex when they get married? If you are single are you waiting or do you believe in waiting? Post your comments below!!

  1. I didn't wait. I've had friends with benefits. I don't place so much importance on virginity. Because honestly I wouldn't want someone judging my worth as a woman and wife based on if I still had my hymen. There's so much more to me. My husband couldn't care less if he was or wasn't my first. But he's also 48 with an ex wife and lots and lots of one night stands in his past. There's something to be said for finding a person that is on the same page as far as maturity goes.

  2. Thank you for your openness and honesty Dani. Do you have an opinion on those that have had sex before however realized that, that was not the road they want to go down for whatever reason IE; Religious beliefs, personal preference etc. and are now abstaining from sex until they get married?
