I'd wait for my husband. And I'd have waited for him before we were married.
Are people just as likely to wait for their bf/gf/wife/husband/partner these days? Watch

I think people are probably less likely to wait now because I think we're more used to having many relationships and to a certain extent, that devalues each individual relationship. Back when your grandparents were young, they might have met when they were about 20, been seperated due to the war, been reunited and got married. Nowadays people are used to dating a lot of people and not getting married til they're much older- so if your girlfriend/boyfriend went away, most people would just move on and find someone else.
I believe the difference between sexual attitudes of young people today versus the older generations was caused by the introduction of reliable contraception methods. In times of yore most females simply would not have sex unless married due to the risk of pregnancy.

Personally, I'd wait. I've always said that and I would expect the same towards me...

Pretty much zilch
