Dear My Zimbabwe Community,
I'm a 28 year old Primary School teacher who was born and bred in a rural set up. I have been dating a 19 year old girl for the past 3 months. We are madly in love and we are at advanced stages of getting into marriage. My girlfriend is not yet employed and she finished her O-Level studies recently after repeating.
She told me that she is still a virgin, and i believed her since she is so much into church business. Now the problem is she wants me to buy her sanitary pads yet she doesn't want me to have sex with her, or even see that part of her body which uses those sanitary pads.
I'm also worried that if I get married to her and I then realise that she is not a virgin what will I do. Will I then be able to stay with such a person for the rest of my life? THis is just wishful thinking, but I think I should trust her word since so far she hasn't lied to me. But my main question is that is it proper for a boyfriend to buy pads for his virgin girlfriend? She stays with her grandmother, her parents are late and her only brother is a cross border driver.
