Hello Aunty Lisa
I recently got engaged to a boy after being introduced to him six months ago.
Our parents know each other and thought we would make a great match. We went out a few times and got along, so we decided to get married.
I really like my boyfriend a lot and think he likes me too. We have had a lot of conversations about our marriage, likes and dislikes, what we hope from each othim and how we intend to make this work.
The thing is, he thinks I’m a virgin, but I lost my virginity to an ex-boyfriend two years ago. My boyfriend asked me about my past, and I lied, because I know he’s a virgin and assumed he would want to marry a virgin too.
I want to tell him the truth, but don’t know if this will cause him to end our engagement. I don’t want it to end just because of something I believe is unimportant, but I don’t want to start our marriage on the basis of a lie either.
What should I do?
