Getting intimate with your partner before getting married has a way of clogging one’s perception about their partner.
Many have stayed in bad relationships because they had good chemistry in the bedroom with their significant other.
However, some people have decided to date their lovers without getting any intimate relationships with them. Some have ended up having either healthy relationships or long-term partnerships that ended in marriage.
Here are eight celebrities that have in the past practised celibacy when dating or before getting married.
These two have been serving couple goals ever since they got together. Singer Ciara and her husband Russell Wilson have spoken publicly about their pre-marital abstinence multiple times.
“I really believe that when you focus on a friendship, you have the opportunity to build a strong foundation for a relationship.” Ciara once said in an interview with Cosmopolitan.
The two first met in March 2015. Got engaged in March 2016 and later married on July 6, 2016, in England.
Ciara has three kids but shares two with Wison.
Jessica Simpson’s decision to remain pure until marriage was not a secret. She termed virginity as something cool.
When Mariah Carey first started dating Nick Cannon in 2008, she decided to take a vow of abstinence until they were formally married.
However, she clarified that they did not have complete intimacy during her interview with the Daily Mirror.
The two, however, split in 2014 and divorced in 2016. They have two kids together.
For years, Kevin Jonas wore a purity ring as a symbol of his decision to abstain from pre-marital sex.
He did this until he married his wife, gorgeous Daniella.

She explained her strong Christian faith as a reason. She later met her husband a year later, and they got married in 2010.
In 2010, she told fans in England while on tour for MAC’s Viva Glam campaign that they did not need to have sex to feel good about themselves and not have sex if they didn’t feel ready.
The Insecure actress even has a TED talk on this, sharing how she found herself still a virgin at 35 years old.
