I Respect Hailey And Justin Bieber For Waiting To Have Sex, Considering How Messed Up Dating Culture Is In 2019

In a world where we swipe right for the next best thing and move along from hookup to hookup, I have a huge amount of respect for Hailey and Justin.

Unless you live under a rock, you've probably seen Vogue's March issue featuring newlyweds Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber. The pictures are as stunning as you'd imagine considering the team of people involved beautifying an already beautiful couple.

Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the couple's interview was their sex life, or lack thereof. Justin Bieber opened up about how he was celibate for a year—which has taken the world by surprise—and that Hailey and Justin saved themselves for their wedding day after rekindling their romance back in June. Bieber told Vogue that he struggled with sex addiction and he attributes this decision to his desire to become closer to God.

"He [God] doesn't ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff," said Bieber. "He's like 'I'm trying to protect you from hurt and pain.' I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don't feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that."

In a world where we swipe right for the next best thing and move along from hookup to hookup, I have a huge amount of respect for Hailey and Justin.

I think people forget that love isn't just a feeling. It's not lust, the honeymoon phase or chemistry. Love is a decision. It's a commitment. It's a promise.

People and fans all over the nation had something to say about the fact that Justin and Hailey sped to the courthouse to be married, and most comments were negative.

Since when is making a lifetime commitment a bad thing?

I'm sorry but if Justin Bieber can abstain from sex from a SUPERMODEL, I am pretty positive he has what it takes to stay married.

This generation is so obsessed with everything shallow. We are COMMITTED to being shallow. That's our commitment. How sad is that? We run from commitment, we run from emotions and we run from anything with any type of substance. Yet Hailey and Justin Bieber have committed themselves to God and each other, and people still find something negative to say.

It's not like Hailey and Justin thought it would be easy. They knew exactly what they were getting themselves into. Hailey said it herself, "it [marriage] is really effing hard."

"I'm not going to sit here and lie and say it's all a magical fantasy," Hailey said. "It's always going to be hard. It's a choice. You don't feel it every single day. You don't wake up every day saying, 'I'm absolutely so in love and you are perfect.' That's not what being married is. But there's something beautiful about it anyway—about wanting to fight for something, commit to building with someone."

So instead of being negative, we should applaud them, root for them, cheer them on because instead of going on the never-ending search for something better, they've committed to a never-ending journey of bettering each other with God as their No. 1.

Call me crazy, but I think that's beautiful.

10 Cringe-Worthy Wedding Trends That Any Sane Bride Will Leave Behind

Please, do us all a favor and keep it classy this year...

As we're coming off of a very hardcore engagement season, I think now is the appropriate time to share our thoughts and feelings surrounding some common 2018 wedding trends on Pinterest.

Every year, soon-to-be brides stress and stress over creating the most innovative weddings, each one more glamorous and creative as the one they attended before. Yes, your wedding should represent you and your significant other and be as authentic as possible, but there are some things that should not even be allowed at the ceremony or during the reception.

We've all seen "27 Dresses" with Katherine Heigl, yeah? I'm talking about those kind of things. The table settings that make you cringe, the guest book idea that has you whispering "WTF" and that drunken best man's speech that collectively makes everyone really uncomfortable. You'll see what I mean...

Here are the 10 most cringe-worthy wedding trends I hope get divorced in 2019:

1. Mason jars

I swear to God if I see another pickle jar lookin' receptacle I'm leaving your wedding and taking my present with me. This "trend" is not only outdated, but so overdone and #basic. Mason jars as flower vases, mason jars as cocktail glasses, mason jars with candles in them, mason jars filled with candy as party favors—GET RID OF IT. ALL OF IT.

2. Burlap accents

I'm sorry, I think I just threw up a bit. Burlap—it's not cute, comfortable, or conventional. If you're trying to create a rustic vibe, burlap leans more barnyard than country chic. Plus, threads will start to unravel throughout the night, creating a stringy mess on the dance floor and unwanted bits in the food.

3. Rubbing cake in each other's face

Not that this became a trend in 2018, but I felt that it needed to be mentioned: please don't mess up the bride's hair & makeup with sticky frosting! Chances are, she spent a significant amount of money on a stylist to look effortlessly beautiful on her big day, and you just smudged two hours of hard work all for a few laughs.

4. Wearing converse/cowboy Boots/Uggs underneath your dress

Believe it or not, there is a time and a place where it's acceptable to sport this kind of footwear. Your wedding day, a formal event, should not be one of them. Save your cowboy boots for the ranch and your Uggs for the slopes, please!

5. "Funny" flower girl/ring bearer signs

Okay, some can be quite cute when done correctly, but messages like these make me shiver. The shot-gun wedding/man marries woman because she's the only option leftover reaaallly grinds my gears. It's tacky and kind of embarrassing.

6. Extreme themes

Let's get this straight: weddings should have vibes, not themes. Little girls' birthday parties have themes like princesses, high tea, and "Moana." Your wedding is not one of those occasions. Try for something more classic such as downtown chic, bohemian, or just keep it traditional!

Side note: This Harry Potter cake actually made me laugh out loud. Seriously, LOOK AT THE DOBBY CAKE TOPPERS.

7. Spreads or small-plates as the meal

Though it may look very photogenic and align perfectly with your boho-chic vibe, this type of setup is extremely impractical for your guests. For starters, it only allows people to grab a little bit of food at a time, causing your attendees to make a few trips back to the table and cause unnecessary traffic. Secondly, the foods are fairly messy and will have the tendency to mix when packed so tightly together. Third, it's not very filling, and hangry guests aren't fun guests.

8. Open seating at the reception

Please, for obvious reasons, just make a seating chart. Yeah, we get that you're trying to be ~all inclusive~ and get families who wouldn't normally sit together at the same table, but in reality, families don't want to be separated at events like these. Your guests will mingle as the night goes on, and assigning seats to people will make things a little less complicated during the reception.

9. Cheesy photo-booths with props

Again, something like this would be cute for a child's birthday party, but not on your special day. Besides, does anyone actually use these at weddings? Guests often forget about this "activity" and you'll probably end up wasting your money on props, backdrops, and a camera.

10. Asking for donations in "creative" ways

So, you've already asked people to take time off of work, maybe purchase a plane ticket, book a hotel room, buy shower and wedding gifts, and now you're asking for more money? That only makes the couple seem cheap and a tad bit rude. Maybe opt in for a small activity for guests to guess the honeymoon destination on paper or offer romantic date night ideas!

Military Girlfriends Are Just Wives Without The Label

"A military girlfriend is just a wife in waiting, no one would go through this if they weren't in it for the long haul."-Anonymous

Over the years, I have seen the military only showing recognition towards wives of soldiers. It feels like the military believes only wives are worthy of recognition. I am a girlfriend to a U.S. soldier, and I think it's completely unfair. In my eyes, a wife and a faithful girlfriend are both surviving the same situational circumstances, but the wives just get to reap the benefits with their soldier.

Girlfriends go through the same things as the wives. We wait to see them, sometimes really long periods of time. We wait in line after line to be able to see our men.

Whether I am a girlfriend or wife, I believe the military should take every soldiers relationship seriously.

When your soldier deploys, girlfriends won't be given any information related to his job. I know we can't know where they are, but it would be nice to be able to know where he's stationed at and that he's okay.

One of the worst parts is that if something happens to him you won't be the first person the military calls. I understand his intermediate family should probably be notified, but if you are very committed to your soldier then the military should inform all loved ones, including girlfriends.

Living on his post is not an option for girlfriends. Girlfriends have to live off post hopefully somewhere close by. Sometimes girlfriends like to live with their boyfriends, and if that was me having that off post rule would definitely bother me. If your soldier moves away because you have the girlfriend label on your back the military won't support your move.

Living this lifestyle is not easy, and I understand why the military can't treat girlfriends like wives. No one willingly would put up with this lifestyle if they didn't love the person that's in it. For someone to be just a girlfriend, we deal with so much that seems unbearable to outsiders.

I just believe that military girlfriends are more than just girlfriends. Girlfriends are basically wives without the label, but whether the military acknowledges us or not.
