Russell Wilson and Ciara are going strong in their relationship, and they’re going strong without sex. In a recent interview with The Rock Church, the Seattle Seahawks player spoke candidly about their relationship and walk in God.

I met this girl named Ciara, who is the most beautiful woman in the world. She’s the most kind person, the most engaging person. I could probably learn more from her … everything that I could ever want.

And so I’ll never forget: She was on tour, she was traveling, and I was looking at her in the mirror. I was sitting in the dressing room, and she was getting ready to go, about 15 minutes before she went onstage. And she was sitting there, and God spoke to me and said, ‘I need you to lead her.’ And I was like, ‘Really? Right now?’

He goes, ‘I want you and need you to lead her.’

So I told her right then and there, ‘What would you do if we took all that extra stuff off the table and just did it Jesus’ way?’

Yeah, we’re talking about sex.

For me, I knew that God had brought me into her life to bless her and for her to bless me and to bless so many people with the impact that she has, that I have. We’re not gonna be perfect, by any means. Life’s not perfect. Nobody’s perfect, but he’s anointed both of us, and I know that he’s calling for us to do something miraculous, something special.

I said to her, and she completely agreed: ‘Could we love each other without that?’ If you can really love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody.

And of course, people are wondering if he’s being real. But the thing is, just because they’re not having intercourse, doesn’t mean they’re not intimate. But occasionally you have to explain such things to folks.

Social media called out the couple and the fact that they’re choosing to abstain? But what’s so wrong with practicing abstinence? Now, I’m not saying it’s something I’ve ever done in a relationship, but if that’s what people want to do, more power to them.

But there are common misconceptions about abstinence.

A) It does not prevent the transmission of STDs – Those still can be transmitted by kissing, oral sex and genitals touching.

B) Just because someone is abstaining from sex with you, doesn’t mean they’re abstaining from sex with other people.

Clutchettes, have you practiced abstinence in a relationship? Would you?

    My views on their relationship deal with 2 words. They are: “They’re Grown.” Both Russell Wilson and Ciara love each other a great deal. In many photographs, they are expressing smiles and enjoying each other’s company. Abstinence is very valuable. Some people in society are immature and demonize people who are celibate, but we shouldn’t like those ignorant people. Regardless if someone is abstinent or is sexual active, that person has the same dignity as anybody else. Abstinence is a blessing and it’s a great responsibility. Sex can be a part of love, but Love can be expressed without Sex too. That point must be emphasized in our generation. The couple has the right to be abstinent and I wish the best for both people.

    Me and my boyfriend don’t have sex as well. I’m a virgin and we been together for over 3 years and are now engaged. I think omiting sex from a realtionship can truly teach you about the whole person because nothing’s in the way.
    The truth is most people aren’t ready for that kinda of honesty, so they poke fun at those that live this way. But the truth is the jokes on them….

    I honestly believe Ciara will get bored at some point with Russell during their stated journey of abstinence. No shade and no ill will here, but we must remember Ciara like bad boys. I know I’m going to called on this post, but I just don’t see them lasting, unless he is truly planning on marrying Ciara.
