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.

Ciara and Russell Wilson

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.
