Lauren Winner on Virgins
Here's why I like Lauren Winner:
Last night I gave a talk on sex and chastity at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. It was a remarkable experience – I enjoyed meeting many fabulous students, who asked great, great questions. One question went something like “What do you have to say about a virgin marrying someone who is not a virgin?” I stumbled through an answer as best I could, and then went on to the next question.(sorry to reproduce this in full, but it was such a short post I couldn't find a way to snip it down to a meaningful soundbite). If you like what she says, click on over to her blog and let her know...
Later, while I was signing books and mingling with students, a young woman came up to me and, very casually, offered this amazing insight: “You know, about that question someone asked you about a virgin marrying someone who isn’t a virgin? Well, when I heard that question, I thought, That’s exactly what Jesus did.’”
