In a perfect example of how the mind can dominate the desires of the body, a young couple from Topeka have decided to extend their abstinence from sexual intercourse from their 14 month courtship further into married life.
The couple, John and Darla Crocker, have now spent a total of 25 months without sexual intercourse and plan to continue indefinitely.
“If it was holy before, it must be double-holy afterwards,” Darla says. They have now completed 25 months of marriage without any sexual contact, going about their normal lives, jobs and social calendar with no hint of relational strain. Sometimes after dinner they will kiss in the kitchen and “start having bedroom thoughts,” Darla says, but they never fail to pull back. Darla breaks away to spray cool, misted water on her face. Jon eats a whole raw potato to take himself out of the mood. They don’t know when they’ll finally break the pledge, and they feel no pressure. After abstaining so long before marriage, “a few extra years is nothing,” says Darla. “Of course, we don’t lord it over any other couple who decides to have sex after marriage, but for us it’s about staying faithful to the abstinence message and the holiness involved with that,” says Jon who seems unbothered. “For us, true love waits, and waits, and waits.”Personally I fail to see what holiness has anything to do with abstinence from sex during marriage as The Lord had commanded mankind to
be fruitful and multiply, and sexual intercourse remains the most feasible way to go about it.
