13 Women Who Waited To Have Sex Until Marriage Share Their Feelings On The Decision

"It wasn't as big a deal as I made it out to be — both having sex and waiting. I don't regret it, but..."

The old age, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?" has, for the most part, been debunked by the general progression of modern, egalitarian relationships. Still, many women and men wait until marriage to have sex for their own reasons, whether they be religious, romantic, or just plain practical. 

How does that decision stand up after a few years of holy matrimony? Reddit user madelynjane was curious and asked, "Women of Reddit who waited until marriage to have sex .... how do you feel about your decision looking back on it?" on May 15. In less than 24 hours, hundreds of women responded. Some still consider it the best decision they ever made, while others, in retrospect, wish they'd been more sexually adventurous. 

Their answers ran the gamut, but here's how 13 women weighed in on waiting until the wedding night
