Ciara and Wilson are trying to teach the world what real love looks like. As reported before, Russell was googling terms to describe Ciara’s beauty. Now in their amazing love story they are trying to teach us what abstaining from sex and waiting till you get married will do for a relationship.
Ciara has “Goodies” for Russell Wilson – but they’re still in the jar.
In a new interview with Cosmpolitan, the singer shares an update on the couple’s commitment to abstain from sex until they marry.
“It’s going pretty good – we’re hanging in there,” she says at first.
Then Ciara, 30, explains her struggle is real: “I’m not gonna lie. I’m human, so it is not easy, especially when I look at him and I think he is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen – that I’ve ever laid my eyes on, to be honest,” she said of the 27-year-old footballer’s handsome looks.
So how does the star deal with temptation when her ripped Seattle Seahawks quarterback is close? “I’m like, Look the other way! Look the other way!”
And while intercourse might not yet be in the cards, Ciara says their definition of abstinence leaves room for affection. “You get to hug and you get to have a nice good kiss, but you have to be careful not to go too far so you don’t end up in the place you’re trying to avoid being in,” she explains.
She adds of their connection: “We get to have really healthy conversations and focus on each other as people. That is very important to me and him. It’s very valuable. We’re just enjoying ourselves and going one day at a time and praying and staying positive. Being strong here!”
Following the pair’s stunning debut at a White House state dinner last April, Wilson explained their personal decision in an interview focused on his Christian faith.
“I said to her – and she completely agreed – ‘Can we love each other without that?’” he told Pastor Miles McPherson at San Diego’s Rock Church in July. “If you can love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody.”
Wilson also asked for the audience’s help: “I ain’t gonna lie – I need ya’ll to pray for us,” he said. “Because I know you have seen her on the screen now. If there’s a 10, she’s a 15. Pray for me, keep my mind clear, keep my heart clear.”
Despite their temptation, Ciara and Wilson have yet to announce plans to wed. She was previously engaged to rapper Future, with whom she shares 21-month-old son, Future Zahir.
