My father tells me “Your husband will respect you more if you keep yourself pure for him.” Hearing that now affects me more than it did in the past, because now it makes sense. Why would your husband want something that’s basically already used? I'm not saying marriage is only based on sex, but that’s one aspect where it should be shared between a husband and a wife.
source:cdc.gov Usually, when a girl get married, the wearing of a white wedding dress symbolizes purity. Day-by-day I hear how girls are just willingly giving themselves up to sex with no problem. The number of teenagers losing their virginity seems to be greatly increasing. Don't you think the majority of white wedding dress wearers is lying?
“Being bops and hoes is popular now,” says senior Allanieyah Hightower.
There once was a time when her virginity was the most precious and sacred thing to a girl. But now many seem to be just letting it go like they are able to get back. But have we forgotten that once it's gone, it’s gone for life.
Nowadays, it seems like there’s more of an urgency for a girl to lose her virginity. Especially if she has a boyfriend. Having a relationship shouldn’t be based on having relations. There’s no guarantee she's going to be with that person forever. For all we know it’s just temporary.
Do not let your “man” talk you into thinking that you’re going to be with him forever, because that’s usually not the case. But what’s the outcome if you tend to be intimate with all of your relationships. In reality that wouldn’t be so hard to believe because, some say, women are more emotionally involved in relationships than men are.
Let’s set a goal of try to keep our virginity for as long as we want and really take into consideration what Mr.Lyfe Jennings said in his song “….and think before you let it go”. We could try to be different and unique and, before you know it there, would be a growing population of virgin girls.
So with one last thought to leave you with: What do you think you present about yourself once you’re not a virgin anymore? Do you think later on you would regret the decision you made?
Please don’t let the temptation make the decision for you. Make your virginity more of a moral and less of a fault.
