"The Bachelor" couple Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are getting ready for their wedding this Sunday (Jan. 26), which will air on ABC. Through all the hype of a televised love story, the couple has had their minds on the wedding night because they've been waiting for marriage to have sex.

ABC asked the couple if they were excited to finally consummate their marriage, to which Lowe replied, "Well, of course."

The future husband and wife agree that waiting was special to them. "We made a really good decision for us and we're excited to consummate as husband and wife. It's something that is a benefit of being married," Giudici elaborated.

However, Lowe has admitted that it's been a long road and there is pressure involved when it comes to a couple's first time. The former 'Bachelor' told Access Hollywood that abstaining "wasn’t easy by any stretch of the imagination." Luckily, he's not too concerned for the big day. "[I told her] ‘If I don’t perform well the first go-around just give me 15 minutes,'" Lowe joked in reference to wedding night nerves.

Reportedly, Lowe and Giudici are also waiting until after their wedding to move in together. The couple realizes that they'll learn a lot about one another through this process but insist that they aren't going to stumble upon any "deal-breakers."
