If you aren't a virgin do you think it's right to wear pure white on your wedding day?

This only came to mind when my ex told me she wouldn't wear pure white becuase she wasn't pure.

It's not 1953 anymore, where everyone still buys into the whole virgin white milieu. You wear white because you think it's the color that looks best for your wedding. If you're getting married without taking your partner for a test drive at least a few dozen times, you're insane. This is the person you're going to spend the rest of your life with. What if he or she is a lousy lay. You're damning yourself to a life of bad sex and you don't even know it. insanity!

I think the woman should wear whatever color she wants. It's her wedding, and the man's as well, and if they want her to wear white then they should be able to. Hardly anyone who gets married is a virgin still, but it's still traditional to wear white.

Seriously? Marriage may be awesome, and color should not matter one bit, especially in the context of sexual ethos.

Side: Yes

You know what white is? Its a color, nothing more nothing less.

It'd only be hypocritical if the reason she was wearing pure white is to symbolize purity when she isn't pure.

To be frank , there are not much who still virgin until the day of wedding , I personally and the public would think so , I assumed . Virginity is the runner-up in comparison to the love and bond between the two , right ? So , what's the big deal to heed much about one's virginity and wearing pure white during the vivacious day ....huh ?

Side: Yes

Are you fucking retarded?

Side: Yes

Silly traditions should not be followed. Any girl should be able to wear white on her wedding day.

Side: Yes

There are quite a few brides who are not virgins but to decide to wear a white wedding gown.

Side: Yes

It depends on who knows. If no one knows, except the guy that's out of the picture and he can be counted on to keep his big, fat, mouth shut, then go right ahead and wear white.

If your Dad doesn't know and you're his little angel and you don't want to destroy his world image of you, and your old boyfriend cannot be counted on to keep his big, fat, mouth shut, then..., take a chance, wear white and hope for the best.

If everyone knows, then wear something that is as many shades off-white as the number of guys you have bedded. So, for example, if you did the football team..., you my end up wearing something close to black..., maybe a dark gray.

If it was only anal sex..., then you may want to consider a brownish color.

If it was only oral sex, then a few stains on the dress should be in order.

Crap!!! That escalated fast ;)

What the f*ck do I know, why are you even asking ;)

While I agree You shouldn't wear pure white on your wedding day if you aren't a virgin lying about it is wrong. To me if there was any sexual act I did I wouldn't wear pure white. I love asking questions ;) especially ones people never thought to think about.

LMFAO, I entirely agree and that argument was hilarious!! Well done Sir!! (In my best Chester the Cheetah impression)

Of course. The whole "Pure soul symbolism" thing is not even relevant anymore. I'm not saying that I believe in losing your virginity before marriage, I'm just saying that doing so is not a justifiable reason to wear an ugly dress on your own wedding.

This is completely insane.

White is the LEAST pure color of them all.

In fact, it has EVERY other color inside it.

The most pure color is actually black, for it contains no color. It only absorbs light.

"for it contains no color. It only absorbs light."

So....you actually mean it contains all colors? White contains no colors because it reflects all colors. Black contains all colors because it absorbs all colors. If you took Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow paint, and mixed them together, you would get white?????? Of course not, you'd get black.

What you are thinking of is light in terms of production, not reflection. There's a difference, but not to worry. I've personally made this same mistake myself tons of times. ;)

So, technically, yes; white is the most pure color because it contains absolutely no colors at all.

I don't think it's right to wear white. It's like lying or being ashamed of yourself, you have to wear white to placate societal expectations. If you aren't a virgin, own it. Things in my opinion that disqualify White as an option are, Not being a Virgin, Being Married before, having kids with or without marriage. And the biggest reason, who actually looks good in white anyways?

If you've been married before and have kids, wearing white makes you look foolish, because, well you have kids... I am all for Brides wearing colorful gowns, blush, peach, pinks, taupe, beige, hues of blues. Whatever, but not white. Leave that for virgins, the beginners of life. IF you've lived a little or a lot, wear those life experiences, don't hide them. It's like women who are ashamed of grey hair, you've earn every one of those hairs, they are to be cherished as something you went through and came out the other side of stronger. Wearing white when you don't qualify is a self harming lie, why would you do that to yourself and your partner and your new life together? Incorporate white into your dress, but it shouldn't be solid white.

We all know that is supposed to represent the purity of the bride so 99% of women out there should be honest and wear something else. You made your choices in life so be honest with yourself.

How wonderfully sexist of you. Not only do you assume to know the private sexual choices of the entire female population, but you support a tradition that attempts to objectify and shame women for their personal sex life without any regard to what the groom has done/not done.

There's no shame in it, most people (in western society) don't wait until marriage. If a bride wears white on her wedding day when she's not a virgin everyone (especially the groom) will think "shenanigans", lol.

I'm sure if there was a similar tradition for the groom he would display his loss of virginity without issue (it would almost be a badge of honor, lol). Only women have a problem with it; many like to be viewed as perfect little Angels even when the complete opposite is true.

Side: No
