They practice what they preach; bride and groom will kiss only after marriage

By Chris V. Thangham     Dec 1, 2008 in Lifestyle
A U.S. couple who are abstinence counselors for teens in public schools decided to practice what they preach; they will kiss only after being wed.
Claudaniel Fabien, 30, and Melody LaLuz, 28, married this Saturday when they kissed for the first time. They both teach abstinence courses for teens in Chicago Public Schools. They wanted to practice what they preached.
Fabien and LaLuz came up with the “no-kissing” rule after they decide to date last year. They wanted to set this rule to keep their relationship under control.
When they dated, they made sure they were never alone together. When they watched movies at home, they watched them as though they were in the theater, sitting straight up in chairs and not lying on sofa to avoid any temptation.
Fabien told Chicago Tribune:
"It really tested us and encouraged us to grow closer in our hearts and our minds, just expressing things verbally."
He showed his passion for her in other ways, such as cleaning her car and washing the dishes.
Their fist kiss would be magical according LaLuz said before getting married. She told the Tribune:
"I don't know how long it'll last, but it'll be great."
They will be going to Bahamas for their honeymoon and have no worries about abstaining.
When asked about the “test drive the car before you buy” theory, LaLuz replied smartly with her own philosophy, saying, "You can't take the car out of the parking lot until you pay for it."
Good luck to them.
