Lolo Jones, an Olympic hurdler who is 29 years old has confessed to being a virgin. I guess I am writing this blog on this subject because I am amazed that the choice for “abstinence” until married has become known as an alternate lifestyle… an alternate lifestyle?
I like her attitude. She said she was tired of answering the question, “Why are you still single?” So she finally told the media she is saving herself for marriage. She stated in a recent interview that remaining a virgin has been harder than training to become an Olympian. However, she also said that her focus on being an Olympian has helped because of the discipline it has taught her.
She has a motto that can be shared with young women today who are finding it difficult to remain pure before marriage. She believes the old motto of “Just say no” is not correct. She says, “Just not now”.
“For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)
