Anyway, to get this thread back on course:
I would council caution with one year of abstinence.
If you feel that strong about not having intercourse (for whatever reason) can you consider postponing the wedding?
The whole dynaic changes when you are married…even just the fact that you will now be living together. You will sleep in the same bed, snuggle up to each other…have shower/baths together…etc. you can see where this leads.
It’s extremely tough to stay the course of abstinence for a full year.
I’m wondering (and Iknow I don’t know you or him at all, so this may be very presumptious of me) that your soon-to-be-husband is maybe not thinking this through, but maybe agreeing more out of love than rational thought?
Forgive me if I’m wrong, but for the reasons above, I’m wondering.
I’m also saying this since I’m in a situation where I am very sexually inactive in my marriage…and it’s driving me stir crazy! And that’s with a once every month or once every two months frequency…
Planned/forced abstinence a tough thing to do and it lends itself to all kinds of evil temptations.
