Ciara and her NFL star husband Russell Wilson became poster children for abstinence when they publicly announced they would not engage in sex before marriage. Now, the singer is revealing that the biblical principle of being equally yoked had a hand in her decision

Not long after they began dating in 2015, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback announced that the couple would refrain from sexual intercourse until they were married. Last July, the couple wed and now Ciara is pregnant with their first child.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan South Africa, Ciara revealed the importance of making sure she was equally yoked with Wilson, a principle that can be traced back to 2 Corinthians 6:14 where the Bible states: “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers…” (ESV)

“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,” Ciara told the February issue of the South African magazine.
