I was just curious, whats the transition like from being in a commited chaste relationship to being married? My girlfriend was just wondering about that, you know, when we're getting married, I mean how do you learn to be in a sexual relationship and whatnot? I don't know much about ideal catholic weddings and marriages and planning beforehand and all that since that isn't really what happened with other people in our families at all. I'm just wondering like, it just seems hard to just go from this best friend BF/GF who love each other and take care of each other and talk and are best friends to suddenly in a sexual relationship. It's sort of scary sounding transition. I mean part of me of course says this has happened for millions of people who had no idea what they were just doing and just fine... but still. Just so you know my girlfriend and I are planning on getting married someday, probably after college. This is slightly an embaressing worry. But is there some kind of Church teaching on all this? I mean I'll put it out there and be honest i've seen movies and whatnot so I know what sex is... but I mean... is there some kind of official church teachings that sort of "teach" you (lol) how to have sex and do it properly and lovingly without being some like sex fiend wierdo? Idk I'm just nervous/curious about getting married.
