Tamera Mowry has been pretty open about her views on s*x and being very conservative about it. Her twin sister Tia also shares these same views. She made her now-husband Cory Hardrict wait a year before she would sleep with him. She wanted to get to know him and make sure that the relationship was real and would last. It is admirable to see that some people still have these values as it seems that more and more don’t these days.
In a recent press junket for her new movie that will be coming out shortly, called Baggage Claim, Tia said that making him wait was the craziest thing that she has ever done for love. She said that they pretty much courted each other for a year. They didn’t even kiss for the first year, and when they went on dates, there were always other people there. This is definitely not a common thing, but it is certainly a great way to really get to know your partner and to see if they are as into you as you are to them.
While Tia’s views on s*x and intimacy may be different from the normal social standards, that is not what this is all about. When you are in a relationship and trying to find that special someone, you are looking for you, not for society. You should retain your values and ideals because in the end, this relationship is about you and the partner that you select. Hopefully they are someone that shares the same values as you do, and in this case, he did. If you trust that the other person will respect you and your values and stick to them, you could end up with an amazing and long-lasting relationship like Tia has.
