Is sex before Marriage a Big deal? – The struggle by Feyisayo Kola-Sanusi
I stare blankly at her as she speaks, taking note of every single movement of her lips. I remember her walking to my room few minutes earlier. It had been a couple of weeks I had seen her and I was so excited to see her again. I felt my palpitations as I heard the knock on the door. I opened the door and I was greeted by that ‘oh-so-pretty’ smile that could melt snow. And here she is, giving me the gist of her trip.
At the moment, she must be thinking that I’m paying her so much attention and I’m listening to her attentively. On the contrary, right now, I see myself pulling her closer to me. She willingly moves closer as I draw her nearer. I look straight into her eyes and I see through them seeing the depths of the love we share. I lean in to kiss her lips….
‘Joe’ she snaps me out of my thoughts with the high-pitched call. That was definitely not the first time she called me. ‘I know what you are thinking’ she says next. I say nothing. ‘And I sometime feel that way too’ she adds. ‘Remember what you told me when we talked about this’. I remember us talking about our sexual grounds when we started dating. That evening, she asked me an intriguing question ‘Is sex before marriage a big deal?’ and I had answered her that ‘yes, it is’ adding that ‘we need to honor God and honor each other with our body’.
And that’s enough strength to carry on! I smile at her, she smiles at me in return.
‘What were you telling me’ and just like that our conversation continues, with me paying full attention this time.
