1. The one who believes trust is of utmost importance
Gargi Agnes Kujur answers on Quora: Gaining her trust is important. Marriage is a very complicated relationship yet the most beautiful. Emotional attachment is more important than Physical attachment. Apart from being physical, if both are familiar with each other then sure things will be fine. First night is already tiresome because of all the function and stuff but still, they can talk and then sleep cuddling each other. The couple can talk or share incidences or can sleep all together. It might be little awkward but hey, they have to spend rest of their life together.
Anonymous answers on Quora: The thing is, it takes time to get to know your spouse before sleeping with them, you know what I mean. So the first night is more of talking. Maybe have sex after one month of your marriage, when you’re both comfortable.
3. The one who summed it up in two sentences
Siddharth Singh answers on Quora: It all depends on how much time you’ve had between the engagement and the marriage. If you have enough time to get to know each other, it won't get awkward.
Neelam Sogani answers on Quora: I had an arranged marriage and my courtship period lasted for almost 9 months. During that time we talked to each other every day, met each other couple of times (we were living in different cities). In fact during that period we got to know each other very well. The idea of my wedding night made excited and now, I am happily married for the last 9 years with two lovely kids.
