Virginity is dignity! It is not lack of opportunity as some folks speculate. If you are, I commend you and urge you to keep yourself for your husband. I assure you that that man would celebrate you and worship the ground that you will walk on... But may I also remind you that virginity is NO guarantee for a successful marriage. I have seen those who were called sluts change and make wonderful homes and I have seen those who got married as virgins make very terrible homes and even get a divorce in some cases. Virginity does not keep the house tidy or cook the meals so develop yourself. Learn simple acts like cooking, cleaning, dressing, greeting etc. It is of no use being a virgin if you are rude and arrogant and can't treat your spouse/fiancé and those around him with respect? You are not the first woman who got or who will get deflowered by her husband and the fact that you got married or will get married as a virgin doesn't mean you are better than those who didn't! Virginity or no virginity, Attitude is everything and the true beauty of a woman lies in her heart. Written by Danjuma Iliya.
