In a comment I was asked:
"You stated that you and your husband saved yourself both physically and emotionally for each other. Does that mean neither of you dated anyone before meeting each other? Is is possible to date before meeing the "right one" and still save yourself emotional?"
My husband never really dated anyone else. He went on a couple of causal dates with friends, but never had a girlfriend or first love.
I, also, never really dated, however I did invest emotional energy and emotions into guys that were just friends. God did have to put me in hiding and healed my heart of some relationship pain I experienced along the way.
I believe serious dating, with no intention of marriage, can lead to emotional bonding that will leave you with a broken heart and less to give to your mate.
Hope this help!
