Catherine says that she can accept Sean's principle of not having sex before marriage, but the 'virgin bachelor' admits he will 'go to the courthouse tomorrow' if she agrees.
Sean Lowe and fiancee Catherine Giudici are planning their wedding following Sean's proposal on "The Bachelor" season finale in Thailand. Sean and Catherine, however, said that they would wait until their wedding day to consummate their relationship. As a conservative Christian, Sean explained, "From my perspective, I've lived life kind of selfishly for a long time. Now, I'm going to try to live it the way I know to be right. It's a personal choice for me." In regards to her husband-to-be's wish, Catherine said, "I honor him."
Sean claimed that the "virgin bachelor" label attached to him did not bother him at all. "I don't pay attention to the labels. This attention is just for a short season of my life, so I'm not going to get too stressed out about it," he said. However, Sean admitted that he would love to have their wedding soon, for obvious reason. "I'm a guy. I'd go to the courthouse tomorrow if she'd let me." he told PEOPLE.
The couple revealed that they were relieved that their engagement had been announced. "I'm just so excited that the secret is out," Sean said. "Now, we can be a normal couple and hold hands in public!" Catherine said excitedly. She added, "It's daunting, the whole prospect of it. We can finally be engaged in public. That's the first step. Then the wedding plans."
"We talked about an outdoor wedding in the L.A. area. I think that will be fun. We want it to be a big party," Sean said. The wedding will also be broadcast on TV. "Our relationship was started and created on TV, so we could solidify it there as well," he reasoned.
Sean, however, told Us Weekly that he would not invite Emily Maynard, the one who sent him home in the last season of "The Bachelorette", to his wedding, saying, "You know, I think the world of Emily, and I want nothing but good things for her. But I don't know if it would be the most appropriate thing to have her at the wedding."
