Wow Lori! That is a great video, very true and inspiring. I appreciate your work so much! Please make more! [especially ones about dating etc. I want to learn more about this subject, and what is considered "wrong" according to jewish law]

Agree

I definitely agree with Lori's statement about how pre-marital sex clouds ones judgement about the other person. When your first dating someone , you see them in a complete clear light and work/think about the important things that a marriage should have. Having sex with your mate before you get married will only cloud your judgement and not let you think clearly of the person. the physical connection that you guys are sharing can make you stay attached to your mate for the WRONG reasons; it's a fact that when a woman sleeps with a man she becomes attached to him; whether it be physical or emotional... and this attachment is not for the right reasons. obviously if you are dating this person you are attracted to him, so you don't need to sleep with him to prove this point. instead, strengthen your relationship by communicating and working on what you need to work on before you tie the knot. and think about it; by not having sex, you have something to look forward to.

im not sure I agree

I regret not sleeping with my wife while we were dating only because were not compatible what so ever when it comes to sex. its a pretty dull life now

well, I'm quit sure that is not the reason why you are living a dull life, even though you think it is. Look deeper, find some meaning and purpose in your life and I'll promise you a change:)
