Virgins Always Have Happiest Marriages?

Virgins Always Have Happiest Marriages? November 16, 2018
I know I usually use this photo of horses and their foul droppings on Doug Wilson posts, but since this blogger is speaking of manure and her words have a lot in common with horse manure you are getting the rear view of horses waiting riders on Playa Brasilita Costa Rica.

Remember months back when Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife did her series of poorly-written articles on tattoo-less virgins? The internet and most women roared back over the false assumptions Lori pushed. Lori went viral and was overjoyed by it. Even other Christians gave Lori push back over her ideas.

Apparently her shaming and blaming struck a chord with other trying to be female cultural enforcers in the Evangelical world. Theo one I am quoting here today is from Girl With the Dragonfly Tattoo. She may have a tattoo now, and thinks there’s nothing wrong with it, but she disapproves of having any debt, any tattoos and not being a virgin upon marriage.

Here’s what she’s saying:

Keep in mind that those ‘recent studies’ the blogger is referencing here she didn’t either bother to read or link to. Instead she linked to toxic manosphere red pill writer Wintery Knight instead. The university study was conducted in Utah, home of the worlds biggest consumption of anti depressants among married women, and one of the biggest most repressive versions of Christianity ever. My point is that the study is hardly an unbiased source.

I doubt her claims because there’s just too much out there, legitimate studies that is, that contradicts the notion that virgins have better marriages. The divorce statistics do not bear that out. The recently released stats on marriage show that the older you are when you marry the more likely you are to stay married.  That tends to skew away from virginity.

Unlike Lori Alexander I am too much of a lady to discuss my sex life in public, or any of my friends sex lives. But let’s just say that personal experience also puts the writer’s words out to be wishful thinking. Some men like spice more than a piece of white bread.

I have never understood Lori’s desire to expound on her sex life in her chat room, Facebook page, or her blog in the view of virtual strangers. It seems so wrong.
