Seattle Seahawks Quarterback, Russell Wilson, 26, and singer/entertainer, Ciara, 29, have promised that they wouldn’t have sex with each other for the first time until marriage. Recently on CBS This Morning, Ciara called their pledge of abstinence until marriage “Awesome!” and a “great challenge.”

Though Russell and Ciara admitted to times of temptation, which is only natural since they’re both attracted to each other, Russel jokingly states “pray for me” during a video interview with Pastor Miles McPherson.

It’s a beautiful thing to see a man lead his woman in the way of righteousness by setting the standard of no sex until marriage in the relationship.  Now they can focus on getting to know each other with an end goal in mind of marriage!

I wish them both the best in their dating journey!

Single, Saved and Celibate

Being celibate is the new black.

Whether its actress, Kendra Johnson who plays Linda, from Tyler Perry’s sitcom, Love Thy
Neighbor,
informing her online date that she’s celibate, or actress, Meagan Good, sharing
how she and her husband, Hollywood executive, DeVon Franklin, were abstinent with
each other until marriage – more women are choosing to hold on to the cookie, but for
more than 90 days – they’re holding on to it until he puts a ring on it and the two say, “I do.”

But in the meantime, with media claiming it to be so “hard” for a single black woman to settle
down with a good man, what’s a single girl with standards to do?

Is it realistic to date someone several weekends in a row while the maintaining no expectation
of physical dessert after dinner?

Not only is it realistic, it’s also best in order to maintain one’s dignity, spiritual grounding and peace.

Choosing to be abstinent until marriage is not a death sentence, it’s actually a proclamation of
freedom – freedom from settling for less than God’s best and freedom from all the emotional
complications and drama that accompanies sex before marriage.

The key to maintaining your standards while dating is to make sure you date someone who holds
similar standards as you.

Let your date know, up front, that you’re abstinent until marriage.

If he tests you along the way, maintain your stance and back away if you have to – he’ll respect
you even more for it.

Men respect women with standards.

If a man has to work in order to win your love, which includes his working to keep his hands
off you, then if he’s really into you he’ll respect your desire and will do whatever it takes in
order to keep you.

A man who is out to get some and that’s it, with no plans of a future with you, will try you
and once he sees he can’t get any – he’s on to the next one.

So don’t get offended if, during your quest to remain set apart, that many fall off along the way.
They weren’t yours to begin with because the one God has for you, is for you and he’ll not only
respect your decision to wait he’ll also value you the more for it and would also want to wait, too.

Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Amos 3:3

Tamera Mowry on being Abstinent Until Marriage

tameramowrywedpicShould you wait until marriage before having sex?  Are people still abstinent these days?  Are there really any abstinent celebrities?

Well, Actress Tamera Mowry would say “Yes” to all three.  In 2012, she married the love of her life, Fox News anchor Adam Housley.  Prior to dating him she was a virgin up until age 29 and felt so bad about breaking God’s heart (Yes, Tamera Mowry is a Christian) that she made a commitment, since then, to remain celibate or abstinent until marriage.

Tamera Mowry-Housley stated in Ebony Magazine,

 

“We wanted to make sure that this relationship was what God wanted for our lives. [In order to know] if we are meant to be together, we said, ‘It’s got to be God’s way and not our way.’ We didn’t want to half-step anything [or have clouded judgment]. So our right way was the way we felt God wanted us to do it, which was being celibate. We said to God, ‘This is who we are, I know you take us as we are, our faults, our fears, our joys, our hope as a couple and have your way.”

Well, they did let God have His way and remained abstinent until marriage – and after having dated six years!
They are now still happily married and have a 2-year-old son together, Aden.

So YES, it IS possible to remain abstinent until marriage (and if he really loves you, he’ll be willing to wait).

With God all things are possible!
