Both of us have a principle to avoid physical contact (of any kind) until after marriage. My question was for an after marriage scenario. The reason why I was even wondering about 'waiting' after marriage is because he and I have not gone through conventional dating so in order to gain more comfort and advance to a sexual relationship, it could be better to spend more time with each other and slowly progress towards such a relationship.
I have known plenty of people who have different morals about waiting. They do not have principles that bind them to an 'after-marriage only' idea. I don't agree with their approach or justification on why they do not wait, but I certainly have a respectful disagreement with them and won't ever come to describe them as low character (while those who waited as the 'highest character').
When I asked this question, I did not state anywhere what my principles are, and in case my principles were different than your response stating it's right and correct to wait until marriage holds no meaning and could possibly come off as offense. All of us are part of community and help each other, so in that spirit I thought of writing this to you.
