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!
