    Completely agree, if you want to abstain, do it, but having a ring is just trying to tell people "hey i'm not gonna have sex aren't I a great person i'm so going to heaven...."
    Not necessarily. :dontknow: It could just show people who do want sex that this person wants to wait, and so not wasting anyone's time.

    Don't really care, it's nothing to do with me. :dontknow:

    Also, people make this commitment all the time without the rings.

    Well it's up to them what they do or don't do with their willies/fannies. At least wearing the ring means I know not to date them.

    You know I bet most of them are ugly, they can't have sex, but make it look like a choice, "I don't want to have sex". by doing so they don't feel like they're just going to get rejected.

    I know someone who wears a ring like that. She's a strong practising Christian and I admire her devotion to her faith and her 'sacrifice' so to speak. She doesn't view it as a sacrifice though, she wears it to remind herself of the reason she's keeping sex until marriage, for God/love/trust etc. Good for her, and good for all those others. I couldn't do it though, but I'd love the thought of being a virgin until my wedding night... sadly it's a bit late for that!

    as to my coment "people are expected to cheat" what i was meaning was that it has become the norm, people are no longer shocked by it. and i think the rings are cool they act as a reminder to the person who wears it, most people wear rings so it isn't an in ur face im holy or have more control than u, but something that to this person reminds them of a promise they made, similar to a wedding ring.
