Rob and I didn’t wait. If you know me at all, you know I don’t really wait for anything. If you have been reading this blog at all you will know why we didn’t.
The thing about it is, I don’t regret it. Not one tiny little bit of me. And no it isn’t because the sex is so amazingly good that if I had waited I would have missed out. Though that may be a good reason. If we had waited we wouldn’t have moved in together. Maybe our foundation wouldn’t have been strong enough to stand being apart for a year. Maybe we would have broken up. I honestly don’t know. I do know that living together for a year made me feel like I could weather a storm with him. And man, there was a big one coming.
This view runs counter to the Christian view that abstinence is the only option for people that are unmarried. I know this. I don’t know how to reconcile it. If I could I would. What I do know is that I believe in God and I believe that not waiting was absolutely the right decision for us. I am unapologetic about it. I will be answering to God for my time spent on earth. No one else.
