The other day I was watching a promo for the new film Jumping the Broom, when Pastor TD Jakes, the film’s producer, was discussing one of the film’s main plot points—waiting to have sex until marriage.
After Sabrina Watson (Paula Patton) sleeps with yet another man who ends up kicking her to the curb, she makes a promise to God that she’ll stay celibate until she meets “the one.” Almost immediately she meets Jayson Taylor (Laz Alonzo), and so begins a funny and frustrating dance of trying live up to her promise.
Back in the day, having sex with your boo was reserved strictly for the married crowd. But as times have progressed, many have ditched tradition and chosen to have sex whenever and with whomever they want.
Personally, I don’t care what people do as long as they do it safely, but what about you Clutchettes and Gents?
Is waiting until marriage still a viable option? How long did you wait before you got it on with your partner? Why?
Let’s talk about it!
