Sex Before Marriage: HuffPost Live Guest Says She's Glad She Waited (VIDEO)

Is waiting to have sex until you're married a good idea?

For freelance writer Alissa Henry, the answer is definitely yes.

Henry stopped by HuffPost Live Friday and revealed why she chose to wait until marriage to have sex.

"I wouldn't trade that time that we spent dating," she said. "We did everything else -- we hung out, we went and rode bikes ... Now, being married, we still go out and stuff, but we do the married thing now. I think it's nice to see a progression ... If you're living with a guy and having sex with him from day one, what is there to look forward to?"
