21-year-old woman shares reasons why she waited until marriage before having sex — Go Viral
This couple “stayed pure” during their 5-year-relationship – and they say the long wait was worth it.
Do people still value sexual purity these days? With the many news reports we get about young women selling their virginity to interested parties online, it’s easy to think otherwise.
And yet, there are a few individuals – like this 21-year-old newlywed woman – who shows us that, yes, staying chaste for your future spouse is actually possible.
Milena Ciciotti, a beauty and lifestyle vlogger from Michigan, totally abstained from sex before getting married.
In a YouTube video that has since gone viral online, Milena shared her secrets of how she and Jordan, her now-husband, avoided giving into temptation for the entire 5 years of their relationship. Now she’s encouraging young people to wait because it will be totally worth it.
Milena, however, was quick to clarify:
I’m not making this video to look down at people who have had sex before marriage, but for younger people who are waiting and need some advice.
“I am not here to sit and judge people.”
Milena first made the decision when she was 12 or 13.
According to her, she was at a church concert and they handed out purity rings for the young attendees to encourage them to stay pure. She decided to make it her goal.
She eventually met Jordan when she was 15 – and he shared the same view about sex and marriage.
The two dated for 5 years before they tied the knot.
Milena admitted that staying true to their promise was really easy at first since they were “way too young anyway” but things got harder as they got older.
In her own words, Milena explained:
“We got more serious and you have your ups and downs, so it’s not all always easy and it’s not always really hard either. Sometimes you just get into the routine and you forget about it.”
The young couple, however, was determined and made it a point to stay away from temptation.
The two went the extra mile in order to protect each other. “This included never lying naked in bed together, staying up really late together, being home alone together without parents being present, go swimming together or wear a bathing suit around each other,” according to DailyMail.
Aside from establishing rules, they also steered clear from talking about sex. As she explained:
“The more you talk about it, the more you get curious about it.”
“I was always tempted, my husband is a good looking man,” added Milena in jest.
As for what to expect when it finally happens, newlywed lady has something to say about the experience.
