Ciara On Abstaining From Sex
Could you abstain from sex before marriage? Both Ciara and Russell Wilson have been transparent about their decision to wait before jumping the broom. As you know, the singer was already a mother to Future Zahir Wilburn, whom she shares with ex-fiancé rapper Future. And now happily married, she and the NFL’er are expecting their first child together.
In a new interview, CiCi opens up about abstaining:
I really believe that when you focus on a friendship, you have the opportunity to build a strong foundation for a relationship—and once you know you’re really great friends and you’re what we call ‘equally yoked,’ where you share the same values or the same outlook on life, it kind of sets the tone. Knowing that you’ll always have the friendship and that you can always go back to it is very important, and very powerful.
Ciara admits that it wasn’t her idea to abstain,
I have to give credit to my husband for sharing those views. It’s awesome how it all worked out.
Here’s how it works. We women think with our hearts and with our minds. When we see a guy, we envision what he’s like and whether this could be something special. Guys see us from an exterior point of view—that’s something I learnt along the way as a woman. It’s important to have a friendship. It’s important to have standards. You shouldn’t feel like you have to give your body away to get someone to like you.
