The Waiting Game

24 Jan

Pre hanky-panky may not lead to a happy relationship. According to a study conducted by Dean Bugsby at Brigham Young University, couples that abstained from sex until marriage were better off.
2,035 married couples, age ranging from 19 to 71, length of marriage from six months to twenty years, all sorts of religious and non-religious affiliation were recruited for the experiment.  Bugsby still cannot find the cause or reasoning of why abstinence makes the heart grow fonder.
