A Promise Ring

At my church every year the youth take an oath of purity meaning we won't have sex until we are married. What happens is every March all the youth willing to make the commitment get up in front of the church with either their parents or a sponser. We say an oath and then our parents or sponser say something and give us a ring. On our wedding night we are supposed to give that ring to our spouse and show them we have abstained and waited our whole life for them. For the past 3 years I've taken the oath. And I will continue until I am married. Some people say, "What if that person never comes? That's a long time to wait." But you can really be respected if you wait for the right person, who will come along even if it takes time.
