Ciara who covered the latest issue of InStyle magazine, revealed that it took ‘a lot of prayer’ to abstain from sex until marriage to Russell Wilson.
The 33-year-old singer who recounted the immediate connection she and the NFL quarterback had upon meeting — and the challenge it presented, added that self control wasn’t enough.
Ciara who revealed that it took ‘a lot of prayer’ to abstain from sex until marriage to Russell Wilson in the sit-down interview, added that their Christian faith is at the heart of their home and their choice to remain abstinent until marriage.
“We both knew,” she says, remembering their first date in 2015. “We both had that light-bulb moment.”
However, the couple take their faith seriously and wanted to wait until marriage before consummating their love, which Ciara half-jokingly admitted was no easy task.
“That took a lot of prayer,” the singer tells the magazine. “It was hard. I can’t lie.”
