Another point is that a wedding may not be possible for some time (e.g. a year or so) after the engagement. This could be for several reasons, e.g. illness, money, finishing a uni course. Does that mean i abstain from expressing how i trully feel for a whole yeah, JUST because of money reasons (to take an example)???
Oh and i did forget to mention - marriage can also be ended with a word. The man/woman then walks out, never to be seen again. I have heard of this happening quite a few times.
hang on is what you people are saying is that sexbe4 marriage is ok if both partners are commited to each other? marriage isnt completely neccessary, thats a liberal , post modernist stance i never expected
thats my personal belief anyway if u disagree tell me why
