My girlfriend and I have been together for just over eight months now, and started being sexually active at about the end of the first month and we "mesh" together very well in the bedroom, I think. We have gotten pretty serious over the months and have become very close, physically. Recently she expressed that she has been feeling very convicted about us having sex before marriage and that we need to stop. At first it was ok, but then it went from no sex to no more spending the night together, no oral, no hardly anything. I love her very much and want to respect her in this matter, and I understand where she is coming from, to an extent, it's just getting very difficult. I miss being as close as we were and I feel like our physical relationship just keeps getting downgraded. Has anybody else been through a similar situation? Any tips/recommendations as for how to get used to this or accept it or what to do?View Thread
