Bride, Groom Save Their First Kiss for Altar
Won't kiss on the first date? How about waiting until marriage?
Melody LaLuz is (soon to be was) a 28-year-old virgin. And she has a lesson for you.
Saturday, LaLuz married fellow virgin, 30-year-old Claudaniel Fabien, and hopes to send a message that abstinence is cooler than in that Steve Carell movie. So cool, in fact, that the couple have become abstinence educators. (Perhaps a sequel plot?)
"Sex is worth the wait! We believe this and we live out what we teach---it's true that abstinence does work," said LaLuz and Fabien.
LaLuz decided at 16 that she was going to wait for sex until her wedding day. The couple says in a time where casual sex is the norm, their message has inspired thousands of young people to wait too.
But Saturday, all bets were off as the nearly 500 guests watched the first kiss between LaLuz and Fabien - all nearly two minutes of it.
The couple is off to the Bahamas for their honeymoon. We assume they won't kiss and tell about the rest of their trip.
