Some of us don't know this, but in the traditional African culture, newly married couples MUST present, to the awaiting members of the brides family, a 'proof' of the bride's virginity. How is this proof presented? When a newly married bride arrives @ the husband's house, on the day of the wedding/marriage, with the wedding party; comprising mostly of her family members, the husband takes her into a prepared room and bed covered with white sheet. There and then, they will consumate their marriage and present a proof of the bride's virginity to her family. Thinks about it

salt 1: Another bizarre one from a person seeking relevance! Just when you think you've heard it all, another supposed apostle of new understanding springs up.
God hates intimacy outside marriage which is why He established marriage. My advice to op and her cohorts: don't cause people to mock your religion. Secondly, teach the things that will take you and others to heaven. Don't add to the words of God and don't remove from them
That's all.

olarwarlay: Some people here need to learn the correct interpretation and comprehension of write-ups. The OP never asked anyone to do this, She started by saying "Just curious to know if anyone has done this".

Well IMO, it's not a must for it to happen that night. Shebi they are married already, they can do that anytime, anyday.

I guess the decision is their's to take.

Not really! This is how error starts: from suggestion, to instruction, to law, to doctrine!
We must guard this faith jealously

Most people are quick to comment w/o reading to understand. She said she's just curious.
Op - I think its a gud idea only if the couple are virgins or never did the do before marriage.

I was about to agree with you until I read the bolded. Please don't lead people astray by saying things you know nothing about. Why don't you give verses that support the bolded. God asked the Israelites to remove their jewelries so he could decide what to do with them and the bible never recorded anywhere that God asked them to wear it again. Read also Jer 4:30 Even you pastor Adeboye's wife and daughter don't wear gold and they are not deeper life members.
Be careful what you spit out. If you lack wisdom, ask of the Lord.
Note: Am not a deeper lifer and have never bn to deeper life

Whatever. Don't tweak religion to suit ur purpose. Being intimate on the first night of marriage n abstaining from it are aws created by men... and has notting to do with God. God is not human and therefore cannot be bribed. The best thing you can do to receive favor at all times is to pray, keep his commandments and study his word!

Exactly. A lot of wierd doctrines and practices found in churches started this way; following after the thoughts and customs of men. That's why Jesus came; to set us free, absolutely free to focus on God not feelings.

How many times a day do I have to sit down and praise God? What's the actual point of having a church wedding if I can spend the whole night singing and praying? God is not deaf, He heard my prayers in the church, he heard my prayers at the registry, He doesn't need me to pray 24/7 before He hears my prayer. All these Christians and their unnecessary suggestions.

anoda traditionalist has come online. Jeremiah 4vs30 "...though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentests thy face with painting, in vain shall thou make thyself fair,...". With ur educated mind this means gold,crimson,make up is evil? . Rev 1 vs 13 - jesus wears " a robe reachg down to his feet and a GOLDEN SASH around his chest"! - so much for not wearg gold. Gold is d asphalt of heaven! Job 42v10: job was given a piece of silver and a GOLD RING - the jews were gold wearg pple. Mark 7 vs 15 "nothing outside a man can make him unclean.....rather it is wat comes out of a man that makes him unclean " vs 21 "for within out of a man's heart, comes ...... Vs 23: all these evils come from INSIDE and make him unclean". Not d gold u are wearg! Did adeboye write the bible? If he choses not to use gold or silver i shd imitate him? Are u to live by ur pastors word or God's word! .. Use wisdom, todays christianity is crippled with so many worthless traditions that counter God's word. God put gold , diamond, silver, rubies 4 his children to enjoy. Not for satan company. Gen2vs11,12: get ur thnkg straight man.

How?Would you throw away a 10/10 for a jumpoff? The guy worships the ground she works on. He literarily had to part the red sea to marry her.She's a motivation to any right-thinking human and the virginity was just a plus. Not the major deciding factor.

Policewoman: We women can do without sex so I don't personally see not consumating my marriage as a sacrifice. How about donating that wedding gift (car, fridge, Home theatre, Jewelry, e.t.c) to God (or to the poor) as 1st fruit of marriage? That makes more sense to me.

Yvete: Just curious to know if anyone has done this?

The idea is, just as you offer your first fruit of labor to God, likewise it is encouraged, not mandatory to offer your wedding night as a first fruit of marriage. Basically, a newly wedded couple should abstain from intimacy on their wedding night and instead spend the night singing praises, and giving thanks in prayer. grin grin

My pastors wife encouraged this "oath" or "offering" at pre-marital class. Although, some guys were straight up honest, " NO!". They weren't smiling. smiley I think its a good way to start off married life (to pray against mis-fortunes, to pray for unborn children, ...etc). "Bring the best of the first fruits of your soil to the house of the Lord your God" (Ex. 23:19). Has anyone ever pledged to do this?

Oh ok I get it, the fruits of marriage is sex shocked , smh sometimes u spirikoko guys go too far like there isn't a whole day dedicated to wedding thanksgiving and prayers!

As far as the scriptures go,there is no basis for it.This idea is borne out of pure human reasoning-at best,it is false humility.
The idea that a couple practices celibacy on the wedding night does not necessarily mean there would be a marriage cultured with a bed of roses.
If anything,it is what they do before and after the wedding that is consequential.In other words,wedding is a hyphen between the unmarried state and the married state.
Anybody can have a wedding,but marriage is not guaranteed for everyone.For some,it's just a fleeting illusion.
Whether a couple has sex or not on the wedding night is not an issue in the dynamics of marriage.
