I have had my eye on the [easyazon_link identifier=”B00UEM9TY2″ locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]Old Fashioned[/easyazon_link] since I saw the very first preview of it. When Flyby Promotions offered me the chance to review in exchange for an honest blog review I jumped. I have stressed repeatedly how I feel sex is something that a couple should wait on having until marriage, but this movie does more than express it. It shows the actual effects of waiting until marriage to have sexual relations of any kind. Ironically, I had just got done reading an erotic series only because the storyline behind the couple’s relationship reeled me in. I had the chance to compare both relationship styles back to back.
As a result, I was able to be reminded of my own personal relationship with Del. Del and I did NOT wait until marriage to have sex. However, there are many times I wish I could say that I was a virgin when I got married. The fact that we had sex before marriage did NOT make our relationship any better. IF anything it’s added to the complications we had in the beginning of our marriage.
As I was reading the erotic series (now that I’m more involved in reading my Bibles and also reading and watching movies based on those principles) it didn’t feel the same as it had in the past. I LITERALLY scrolled through the erotic scenes because I didn’t need to read them. I didn’t miss anything by not reading those scenes. I left those books feeling like they had built a lusty relationship and not a love relationship.
That’s part of the reason why it took me so long to fully believe that I did in fact love Del. Our sexual chemistry has always been strong with each other. To this day, it still hasn’t died. However, it’s hard to imagine that we could honestly be in love with each other because we are polar opposites in so many ways. Yet, at the heart of us, we have many things that keep us connected.
I told you all of that to stress why I feel the [easyazon_link identifier=”B00UEM9TY2″ locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]Old Fashioned movie[/easyazon_link] is one worth watching. Old Fashion is based on the principle of getting to know your mate prior to having any physical relations. After having to deal with the fact that my husband’s health has steadily declined over the past two years, I see the value in being your future spouse’s friend first. Sex is NOT always going to be an important part of your marriage and it won’t always be the glue that holds it together. Love is the official glue!
Throughout this movie, you can see the couple’s relationship slowly progressing. I’m impressed by the way that they have stuck to the plan of being ‘old fashion’ in their dating lifestyle. I firmly believe that in real life if you were to follow their guidelines that you’d gain a relationship that will last a lifetime. I’ve seen it first hand with my adoptive grandparents. I hope that many teenagers and adults will take this into serious consideration while they are dating.
