Why are you waiting for marriage?

Individuals who choose to refrain from having sex before marriage are often confronted with this particular question — and some are now speaking out. Using the popular smartphone application Whisper, many young people have turned to the social network to explain to others why they are choosing to wait.

Whisper guarantees its users absolute privacy and, as a result, some of the confessions are raw and powerful.
