It is a good thing that I (possibly like you) did not allow one of my brothers to run my life, I would be divorced with a couple kids and have had a vasectomy working 2 jobs to pay child support and for all of the cars/boats/4 wheelers/material things that I do not “have” to have. (my brothers are not divorced, they are married, but if I would have listened to them, this is how I would have ended up)
How could a father be disappointed in his daughter because she is not married? That is a tough thing for a father to say. All those cats need a home, right? A father has a right to “worry” but it makes it worse that your family has some set agenda for you and your life. (nothing against your family at all) It is your life and it is for you to decide how you want to live it, especially at 30 years young. Better to be selective than to settle.
:clapping: my advice would be to stay that way!
The devil will attack us where we are the weakest. Why would he go after an area that you can simply dismiss?
So? This is none of his/her business and I find it strange that he’she is voicing their opinion.
ABSOLUTELY NOT I guess if you want to stand in line and wait for all the others to try the shoes on before you? If you want to wear a pair of old worn shoes? If you want to sit and think that you should have not tried on that pair, you should have waited? If you want to run the risk of what could be in the shoes that could be damaging to your health? If you want to sacrifice eternal life?
Unfortunately a large percentage of them do, but mind you they do not have a clue, they have no idea what sex is or what it means (and this is coming from a guy). Sex is not about the momentary pleasure of an isolated act ending in an orgasm. Sex is so much more than that and sadly many these days do not understand that.
Simply put: Sex is a renewal of your marriage vows! How can you renew marriage vows if you do not have them.
(don’t buy into the lies of those that say “Why buy the cow when you get the milk for free.”)
Now you are right, it is not casual. It is sacramental.
Wait until you have a husband to teach you this! Wait until you think that you cannot wait any longer, and then wait some more. Wait until your wedding night. Read stories about those that chose to wait (maybe at www.pureloveclub.com ?) and how special this night was for them. Don’t trade that in for anything! No matter what anyone, anyone tells you.
:rotfl: You could not be more right!
Stay focused on that which is most important.
(Hint: It is not sex)
