My blog title is a reference to something wonderful. Ask me about it if you're unfamiliar with it!

Well, congratulations. :) enjoy your love, and may God bless you both!
That’s wonderful! What’s he like? Why do you want to marry him?
Yeah? That’s amazing! I admire you for devoting your time to serving in that capacity. :)
wait for this man. (via proverbs31v25)
Yo, quasi-romantic sentiment, I’m really happy for you, and I’mma let you finish, buuuuut…
This subtly implies that the only party under the bonds of sexual temptation/lust is the woman, and that the choice to remain sexless outside marriage rests solely on the man’s shoulders. “Oh, Christian man! Help me sin less! All I want to do is sin with you, but THANK GOD you don’t want to sin with me! I respect you for overriding my life choices with your own!”
Even if we ignore how this is untrue (dudes and chicks both want it) and sexist, it’s a patently harmful attitude to a relationship. I mean, check it out: if something as important as the choice to abstain from sex is decided by one person, you’re setting a precedent that your relationship is not in any way a partnership, let alone the God-fearing partnership that this quote seems to suggest you’d be wanting.
Fact is, both of ya’ll should be choosing to uphold the “no sexy sex” rule. You gotta stop waiting for a “Christian man” with a savior complex to come along and rescue you and instead follow Christ, the actual Savior.
(p.s. you don’t have to “wait for this Man;” He’s already done His thing and is actually patiently and lovingly waiting for you)
