Honeymoon Happy Story
My husband and I had dated for many years before we got married. We were the best of friends and were really excited to start our life together. I had studied Human Sexuality in college and had two degrees in Human Relation areas. I really felt like we were knowledgeable and ready for intimacy. We never had any major concerns prior to our marriage. However, there were a lot of things only experience could teach.
“No, No, No” Then “Go for It!”
Our honeymoon night started well and we enjoyed our first time together. It was very nerve racking for the both of us because we had so often heard “no, no, no” and then after a short ceremony, all of the sudden, it was, “Go for it!” Both of us had to remind each other that we were alright to proceed sharing our love in full. No more “boundaries” kept us from moving forward intimately.
Needless to say we have been happily married for many years now. We did a lot of reading to prepare and then we talked A LOT about our concerns, fears, desires, and what we expected. We also learned quickly that it was important to continue with honest conversation regarding our likes and dislikes during and after sexual intimacy. One of our favorite books was And They Were Not Ashamed. We both felt it was very informative.
