Your First Time

The other day, my fiancee related a story to me that was told to her by one of her middle aged co-workers.

I don't remember a lot of the details but it involved the story of how this lady got married at 17 years old (still married today, impressive). Near the end of the story my fiance said
"so basically she got married just to do it"

I nodded sagely and said that's why I was marrying HER. Her facial expression told me immediately I had said the wrong thing.

"but we have already done it" she said with a confused look in her eyes.

It was then I realized the mistake I made. Here I was thinking this woman was wise beyond her years, she didn't want to get married to please society and indulge in the wedding industrial complex. She wanted to be married because she found the "one" and wanted nothing more to be bonded to this person forever. At least thats what I thought originally.

Turns out though that she was merely getting married so she "could have sex".

"Could have sex" is in quotations because we all know in reality she could have had sex without getting married. The thought that someone would get married to satisfy the lust in their loins blows my mind. It got me thinking...

What if you had to marry the first person you had sex with? Suspend your disbelief for a moment and just think about it.

After I muttered this question aloud My fiancee and I both made a face as if we had smelled sour milk and developed some wicked gas at the same time.

Needless to say (but I'm going to anyway) I don't think it would work out well.

I could be wrong. Maybe your first was Megan Fox.

Well I guess that would have at least kept my numbers down. That and more people would probably hold out. My first was a nightmare.
