FLEX AND SHANICE'S CHASTE COURTSHIP
Both Shanice and Flex had struggled with the dating scene, so when they met each other, they decided to take a different path. "The hardest part was looking into his beautiful eyes and this gorgeous smile and not being able to touch him," Shanice said, grinning broadly. While the two admit, committing to the decision wasn't always easy, they both found it to be well worth it in the end. And it didn't hurt that, once they decided to get married, they didn't waste any time making it official. Flex recognizes how infrequently abstinence is practiced now, but feels fully contented with his choice. "I just wanted to do something different, something that was special, and something that I know we can share forever" Flex said, "It was tough, but we made it through."
