Although this couple split in 2015, Nick Cannon revealed in a radio interview after their 2008 marriage that he and Mariah Carey waited until their honeymoon to have sex for the first time. Cannon and Carey wed only two months after getting engaged, so they didn’t have to wait for too long, though.

Even though Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima is no stranger to sexy lingerie, she announced in 2006 that she would remain a virgin until marriage. “Sex is for after marriage.

In 2015, Ciara and her boyfriend, Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, revealed their plans to abstain until after they’ve tied the knot. “It’s until the deal is sealed.
