16 Abstinent Celebrity Couples Who Waited Until Marriage
Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson
One of our fave celebrity couples of yesteryear was also completely celibate before marriage! Jessica Simpson was never coy about her stance on sex before marriage. She was open about her determination to wait until marriage to have sex because of the promise she made God, her father, and her future husband. Lachey, at the time, noted that it was a bit difficult to stay abstinent but he was willing to do it because of his respect for Simpson. The two did indeed wait until their wedding day, though the pair didn’t stay married for long. Their highly publicized union and subsequent TV show led to one of the biggest breakups in pop music history. They’ve both remarried since and, the second time around, neither stayed celibate beforehand!
