30-Year-Old Virgin: I Have Had To Risk My Life To Protect It Till My Wedding Night

by WDN


Hello Wedding Digest, I just read a write up from a lady that is 30 years old and still a virgin. I don’t know why people find it hard to believe when a lady says so, reading through people’s comments seriously, it baffles me with their sense of reasoning.
My point here is that I am 30years old too and I can proudly say that I am a virgin too…*smiles*. I have four younger sisters and we all are virgins and by God’s grace it ends in our husband’s house. Is not that I have not done something funny, I have, on several occasions and when it comes down to that, I stood my ground and say no.

The first guy I wanted to give it to, told me to go and look for someone else and then come back to him, that was before I got I admission into the Uni. And all through my stay in the University, I did not have a boy friend and so, when I graduated, the same guy that wanted me to go and meet someone else wanted to deflower me, I took to my heels immediately. All my life is in Enugu; in 2011 when I came down to Lagos for my NYSC, I almost lost it to armed robbers that wanted to rape me when I was coming back from work, Wednesday 20th April, 2011 at about 8pm inside Iba Estate Ojo,. Those guys beat the living day out of me, torn my cloths but I couldn’t allow them to take my pride. They used the blunt part of machete to hit my laps and arms “spread your legs” as I was fighting them, they held my neck to strangle me, the other guy said “let’s kill this girl and leave this place since she did not allow us” I have never been close to my God as I was that night, all my cries was God ” why me” at some point I had to change my praying method to “Jesus, come and help” by then, they had removed my pant. With my eyes closed waiting for them to have their way, Jesus actually came to save me because they heard some noise and immediately, they carried my handbag and jumped the fence over to Ipaye road. All the while I was lying down on the floor, I was asking God if it is wrong for me to keep myself all these years to loose it to rapist (3 guys). I sustained serious injuries, the machete hitting at my back (when I wanted to run initially), at my arms (when I was pulling my skirt down as they were pulling it) and at my laps (when I folded my legs). It took almost a year to heal. Even after that incident, I have had series of robbery incident at Iba that made me to relocate in my best interest. This is how far one can go to protect what you cherish so much. I’m in a serious relationship now and I told my guy that I still want to keep my virginity till our wedding night. We understand each other and we will wait until the D-day.

Well, this is my story. I guess that’s there are still millions and millions of girls that are still virgins, but they are hard to find. It takes the grace of God and a good man with a good eye to decipher.

That majority are doing something does not make it right, apart from the biblical principles our tradition supported morality before now especially in this area of keeping ones virginity before marriage and it was very well celebrated. So i don’t see why people think keeping ones virginity is something wrong. Please lets change our mind set about this issue and do the right thing. There are still many people out there keeping themselves, its the best don’t be discouraged if you in that category and don’t allow anyone to discourage you.

I wish more guys would keep themselves this way. It’l make a lot of sense,cos to me,a virgin babe marrying a guy that has been sleeping around has been cheated! My candid tots!

Thank God for ur life nd ur story, hopefully a lot of girls can c this nd know that it is not a crime to wait. True love waits I believe I’m not a car to be tested b4 buying, by Gods grace I will be 30 nxt year but even if I am still not married by then, I prefare to remain a virgin even till I’m 40 or 50 than to lose it to someone I’m not married to.

I’m 25 and a virgin. I’ve never been in a relationship before; i’ve never even been kissed. I was almost raped too on the 4th of November 2014 but JESUS saved me. I pray that He will continually protect the virginity of as many that are saying “No to sex” before marriage. Amen.

Tobi May 2, 2015 - 7:22 am

Reading this makes me happy because at 21 my friends make me think am so old fashioned and rigid. i think young girls need write ups like this because the society is really painting pre-marital sex good

Got married as a virgin last week at 30. Would I do it again if I were to live again? Yes!

Bukky May 2, 2015 - 1:38 pm

I got married last year at age 33 as a virgin. For young girls out there it is possible. Don’t let Pple deceive u by labelling u abnormal. It is the normal thg to do. Pple just try to justify their mistakes by getting more Pple on their side.

It’s great to still have some virgins around and sincere ones at that.
I’m still a Virgin too at 39yrs. How l have done this is only by His Grace.
I made a promise to God that I will hold on until my wedding night.
So far l bless Him for His Grace, though the journey had not
been easy. This l cherish so much.

joy May 2, 2015 - 7:59 pm

ThankGod that we still have faithful ladies that know that our bodies is the temple of God. Marriage is bed undefiled. ThankGod, by His grace am still a virgin. I vowed not to break it until am married. God has been helping me because it is not easy at all, I must confess. Alot of temptations but God is faithful.

I’m a 23 year old girl and a virgin. It’s all possible by God’s grace. But the guys should learn to keep themselves too.

iyke May 4, 2015 - 2:09 am

Toyin it may interest u their are guys out their that are still virgin but they wont say it out loud bc of they are seen as loosers. I happn to be one. At some point it got me worried that at the age 26 . I hv not experienced such but after telling one of my female friend about, it i became less worried. I realized that what actual makes a man is not the number of girls he had slept with but his his opinion of himself. for the first time am proud to tell poeple am a virgin and it matters little to me what poeple say as response when i tell them am a virgin.
