Denise,

First of all, that’s great that you are committed to abstinence until marriage! There may come a time when someone pressures you; but remember, you don’t owe sex to anyone. There are a lot of great ways to say no: explain that you aren’t ready to be a parent, or you don’t want to worry about STDs. Or even point out that you care about your future husband too much to put him at risk. The most important thing is – stay true to yourself and remember that the decisions you make today will directly impact your tomorrow.
