Bride Saves More than Virginity for Wedding Night

June 3, 2009

A Washington woman, due to marry her boyfriend of two years this July, is going to experience a lot of firsts come her wedding day because...she has never been kissed.

Rachel Welch decided at age 14 that she was going save her lips for marriage. Two years ago, the 21-year-old met her husband-to-be Todd Ritter through a church youth group. They two became engaged last December without ever locking lips.

Rachel believes that avoiding unnecessary make-out sessions has been healthy. She told a local news program, "That'll keep me out of trouble and I just wanted that to be a special gift for the man I was to be married to.”

The 21-year-old and her finance show affection by rubbing noses and giving hugs. Her fiance, who has kissed other girls, says he respects her even more for her decision.

What do you think? Would you “save” yourself in this manner?
