Pop singer Ciara has responded to boyfriend Russell Wilson’s statement that the couple are practicing abstinence in their relationship. Ciara confirmed that there was “absolutely” no sex in the relationship and the couple would continue to practice abstinence “until the deal is sealed.” 


Charisma News reports the celebrity couple are not finding their abstinent relationship to be easy. 


Ciara said, "I think both of us look at each other and we're like—whew! But we take it one day at a time and keep it going with each other, and I'm really enjoying every day that we're sharing."


Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson previously told pastor Miles McPherson that God told him to wait until marriage to sleep with Ciara. Some media outlets criticized the announcement, but Pastor McPherson defended Wilson’s choice. 


"There are some in the media (who) claim waiting until marriage to have sex is 'stupid'. I bet you that this would not be a 'stupid' idea if he were dating their daughter. The thought is: The prettier the girl, the more unrealistic it is to wait. It's as though there is no other option,” McPherson said.


"... To all of you questioning why there is a hole in your heart after all of the sex you've had—it won't go away by having more sex."
