Should I Wait to Have Sex?

"Am I Overthinking the Physical Part?"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I'm a freshman in college and have been with my boyfriend for 2 years and 4 months. I am a Catholic and believe in waiting for marriage for sex. This is not completely because of what the bible says. I decided it after I started dating Trent because of how much I love him. He's my first kiss, first love, first boyfriend. And I feel like we met at an appropriate time in our lives. We've sorta grown up together. After being with him what we have is so good and special I can't imagine anything better. So in case there is someone else out there for me I want to be able to say I waited for you. Because if he isn't the one and there's someone else then I can't even imagine how special that love will be because what we have right now is so special.

We've done everything but sex and I feel bad about it. I don't want to be a hypocrite. There's so many rules as a catholic when it comes to things like that. I always have god in my mind but I feel like since I do some sexual things I worry it may mean that I don't have a special relationship or that it isn't the right relationship because it isn't following what the bible says about sexual things.


The only reason I worry is cause I love him so much I want the best for him. I want to do things right. Any advice?
