Until they’re married.
After the topic of contraceptives was brought up, Kerr responded matter-of-factly that she doesn’t use any because the two are waiting to consummate their relationship after wedding bells ring. “Not until after we get married,” she said. “[Spiegel] is very traditional. We can’t … I mean we’re just … waiting.”
According to the article, the reporter consoled her after she giggled and exclaimed, “I know!”
If you want to wait for marriage to have sex, I think that’s a pretty neat thing. Real talk. I won’t get into the whole religious part of why people choose to wait, but be it for religious or moral purposes, or just simply because you want to make your wedding night extra special or whatever, you do you. It’s respectable.
And if you’re able to hold out, more power to you. That’s a TOUGH thing to do no matter how attractive or unattractive your fiancé/fiancée is (side note: I bet most of you didn’t even know that the spelling of fiancé/fiancée is gender specific – read a book for me one time). People get horny. And when people get horny, they fuck. It’s literally one of the most natural things we do.
It has to be much easier to hold off if your partner is on board with your decision. Like if both of you are determined to wait until marriage, you have a much better chance of making it happen. The whole solidarity thing is big, plus if one of you gets all horned up one night after a bottle of red and is willing to crack, your partner will be there to talk sense back into you. However, if you choose to wait but she wants it, it’s damn near impossible to hold off, especially when she looks like Miranda Kerr.
