I continue to fail to understand this mindset. (Via.)

ATLANTA (AP) — A contest that would pay $10,000 to an engaged couple, as long as they abstain from premarital sex, hasn’t gotten any takers. The deadline for the Marriage for a Lifetime contest is Oct. 31. The prize includes free flowers, invitations and other wedding treats…..

Faust has orchestrated mock weddings and other pro-marriage activities through her Marriage Appreciation Training Uplifting Relationship Education program, a nonprofit that isn’t church-affiliated. The program is implemented through Rockdale Medical Center.

This Newsweek article that just came out about abstinence-only made the point that the panty sniffers tend to think of themselves as pro-marriage. It appears that anti-choice people have convinced themselves that sex is so bad and dirty that it ruins marriages. How long before they start telling people that the key to good marriages is separate bedrooms?
