Something I read yesterday at another website has me puzzled. This gal, who is engaged to be married in two months, was saying that her future husband does not know of her sexual past. He has told her many times how important it is for him to marry a "pure virgin" and yet she does not think it is wrong of her to keep that information from him.
Her logic--- She says that she is not lying to him. He has assumed that she is, indeed, a virgin and has not asked so she has not bothered to tell him otherwise.
Many of us were not virgins when we married so I am not faulting her for her past. It is just that I think it to be horribly deceptive for someone to not clarify this with a future spouse so he/she can make an informed decision about whether or not they want to pursue a marriage. I just cannot believe that a Christian would lie about this to their future spouse.
How would you weigh in on this situation? In your circle of Christian friends is it common to lie about a sexual past? I am just appalled! Is it just me? Am I reacting too strongly?
