Courtship Amazing Fact #1: Always Religion and Sex? Nah! Maybe Not

There have been a lot of couples who shied away from courtship. This is mainly because they feel it is “too religious” or traditional. Quite a number of people will rather get married than court first. However, one of the best parts about courtship is getting to understand each other. You may want to slow down on the sex to give you room to find out more about your partner. Interestingly, a lot of couples don’t know how to cope without sex. See if you can. Why don’t you try settling an issue without having sex? Many situations in marriage can pause sexual activities for a while. If you have courted before marriage, it would be easier to handle while staying faithful to your spouse.

If you value spirituality, that could be a silver lining for you. It does not necessarily mean that you attend every single Church or Jumat service that there is. Coming together to agree on a spiritual routine that works for you both can strengthen your bond.
