Honeymoon Happy Story
Wow! What a great topic to add to your website. My daughter is getting married, and she is, of course, curious, interested, and a little worried about what her honeymoon night will be like. This is so important that women especially understand how vital and wonderful sexual relations is to their marriage. I feel that sexual relations in marriage is the atonement for marriage. It heals, it comforts, it binds, and it brings joy!
So here is my husband’s and my story.
My husband and I have been married for more than 25 years. We have a wonderful marriage, but like a lot of newly engaged young women, we had a lot of worries about our honeymoon night beforehand!
I had grown up in a high school where everyone was sexually active, and I had heard a lot of first-time-sex horror stories of pain from other girls. When it came time for me to be married, I was concerned that our honeymoon night was going to be a painful experience.
My mom and I had a lot of talks which was very informative and helpful, and my husband and I talked about it before our honeymoon as well. He knew I was looking forward to it, but that I was worried it would be uncomfortable for me or that it might even hurt the first time. He came into our marriage fully aware of how careful he needed to be.
As I look back on that first time, the only negative aspect for me was what was in my head. I was worrying and didn’t need to. Yes, my husband had to go slow, which we talked through, but I don’t remember any pain. The next morning I was sore, like I had just done an aerobics class with sore muscles, but it was a great experience and we fondly think back on it. I only wish I wouldn’t have been so worried about it.
