Here's a couple that makes a Jane Austin novel look like an adult film.
The "no-kissing" rule came up as a way to prevent things from getting out of hand.
You see, Fabien and LaLuz both teach abstinence courses to Chicago Public Schools teens. And they say they practice what they preach.
To avoid temptation while dating, they made sure they were never alone with each other in a house. When they watched movies on the couch, they snuggled sitting straight up, never lying down.
"It really tested us and encouraged us to grow closer in our hearts and our minds, just expressing things verbally," Fabien said.
He found other ways to show LaLuz his passion—like by cleaning her car. And washing the dishes.
Despite abstaining, they have no anxieties about their upcoming Bahamas honeymoon.
Yes, they've heard "test drive the car before you buy," but LaLuz has her own analogy.
"You can't take the car out of the parking lot until you pay for it," she said.
You can't really test drive the car in the parking lot however. But maybe women (or men) aren't like property in the first place.
Anyway–here's an interesting article about the success or (rather the failure) of abstinence-only education programs.
