Why Wait for True Love?

True love. It's portrayed as a feeling that makes your heart falter. It can be hard to find, but also hard to wait for. Why should we wait for true love? Or rather, why does true love wait? Why should one commit to abstinence until marriage?

1. Love is all about giving yourself to someone. Wouldn't you want to be able to give yourself fully? Wouldn't you want to be able to say that you have saved yourself? All in all, waiting until marriage is a true expression of love. It means that you were patient and waited until you found just what you were looking for.

2. Chances are that if you are waiting until marriage, you are also looking for someone else who is waiting until marriage. That means that you will find someone who has the same goals and virtues that you cherish. You will both be able to love each other for the first time in a sacred and special way.

3. Your spouse will thank you. Just the same as you are looking for someone who is pure, your future spouse is doing the same. They will thank you. They will appreciate your patience and the symbol of love you portrayed by waiting for them.

4. Waiting for true love is a form of sacrifice. It is a beautiful foundation for any relationship or marriage. Sacrifice shows that you are willing to put someone else before yourself and is a key to truly loving someone.

5. If you wait for true love and thereafter find someone else who is waiting, you both will know that the other can be loyal. You can trust and believe in your spouse with the knowledge that they waited for you.

6. Committing to abstinence is a gift to not only your future spouse, but a gift to yourself. Allowing yourself to wait will imbue you with a sense of patience and virtue. You will feel better about yourself, and ultimately more confident and ready for the one you are waiting for.
