Sigh. Sean Lowe. You gotta love him. He's so down-to-earth and sweet. He's hot. Like really hot. And he seems like such a fiercely loyal, romantic, gentlemanly dude. He's perfect as The Bachelor.
But then there's the whole "born again virgin" thing, which is pretty much a major buzz kill any way you look at it. Sure, the whole concept of saving yourself for marriage is kind of admirable in a really old-fashioned way, but come on. How can you vow to spend the rest of your life with someone without taking them for a test drive first?
Sean seems hell bent and determined not to get too frisky with any of the women until he's in the confines of some swanky hotel suite on his wedding night. I can't help but wonder if he'll wind up regretting his decision.
I know sex isn't the most important thing in a marriage, but if the sex is good, it definitely doesn't hurt. And if it's bad or non-existent? Yeah, it tends to complicate things quite a bit. If two people don't have good sexual chemistry and aren't at all compatible between the sheets, then odds are good there will be some other aspect of their lives where they don't mesh, which will lead to a whole host of problems that potentially could have been avoided if only they'd done the deed beforehand. (Whew.)
Seriously, how bad would it suck to finally give in to temptation on your wedding night only to find that your spouse doesn't exactly know how to (ahem) press your buttons? Talk about ruining the big moment entirely.
If Sean knows what's good for him, he'll at least think about getting it on with his fiance now that there's a ring on her finger -- just to be on the safe side and make sure they're compatible in every way possible. If nothing else, at least that will give them time to work out the kinks a bit so they can at least enjoy their honeymoon.
Would you marry someone without having sex with them first?
