Christian couple maintains abstinence through
first two years of marriage
TOPEKA - Jon and Darla Crocker, who dutifully
abstained from sex during their courtship,
have remained abstinent after marriage and plan to
do so indefinitely.
If it was holy before, it must be
afterwards," Darla says.
They have now completed 25 months of marriage
without any sexual contact, going about their normal
lives, jobs and social calendar with no hint of
Sometimes after dinner they will kiss in the kitchen
and "start having bedroom thoughts," Darla says, but
they never fail to pull back. Darla breaks away to
spray cool, misted water on her face. Jon eats a whole raw potato to take himself out of the mood.
They don' t know when they' ll finally break the pledge, and they feel no pressure. After abstaining so
long before marriage, ‘fa few extra years is nothing," says Darla.
Of course, we don' t lord it over any other couple who decides to have sex after marriage, but for us
it' s about staying faithful to the abstinence message and the holiness involved with that," says Jon
who seems unbothered. "For us, true love waits, and waits, and waits." -
