While marriage might not be for everyone, here’s something to consider if you’re considering taking the plunge - you might want to consider NOT have sex with your spouse-to-be.
Findings from a recent study suggest that speeding too quickly into the physical aspects of a relationship early on can result in a crashing marriage later on. The full story can be viewed at the link below…
The rationale as to why early sex seems to be problematic in the long term is as follows:
The study, done at Brigham Young University in Utah, found that married couples who had delayed sex while they were dating were more likely to communicate, enjoy sex and see their marriage as stable than those who had sex early on. They also were generally more satisfied with their marriages.
Why would rushing into intimacy impede marital happiness? According to study co-author Dean M. Busby, people who quickly become intimate may end up marrying even if they're incompatible because they become "entangled" in a relationship that becomes difficult to end.
While there are a myriad of reasons why marriages end, this one factor is interesting because it’s something that serious singles who are looking for a soul mate can control and should keep in mind.
Prudish or not, patience in this particular regard seems to truly be a virtue.
