15 Celebs Who Saved Themselves Till Marriage To Do it

Depending on where you live, in 2016 it seems pretty unbelievable that anyone is still waiting for marriage in order to get it on - but not only is it fully a reality in the United States, some of your favorite celebrities are up to it (or... to be more accurate, not up to much of anything).

When it comes to celebs waiting for marriage, you have to forgive us for being a little doubtful. The thing is, when it comes to intimacy it is oh-so-easy for you to say there's nothing up when there really is. While there is always something to be said for taking people at their word, as rational adults we know it's much easier said than done. Thank the heavens that short of having someone walking in on you full monty, there are not many ways for people to know your intimate life is or is not true - we also know that there are some issues of fame that might make it a little more difficult to admit you're free and casual about sex.

Part of the fascination with celebrities who remains celibate has a lot to do with the fact that quite a few of them are a certain percentage hotter than we are. So, deep down we kinda believe that if we looked as good as some of these famous people we wouldn't be making up reasons to be sleeping alone at night. Sure, we kinda sorta barely admire celebrities who stick by their belief systems, but we also think the whole thing is a bit of a fraud.

Unverifiable and often a little ideologically dicey, this list is about fifteen celebrities who claim to have waited or be waiting for marriage in order to get it on.

15 Jessica Simpson

While Jessica Simpson's "mainstream moment" seems to have long past, she still has a pretty loyal following in the more conservative sectors. Unlike Taylor Swift and some other country stars who forever transitioned to all-out pop music at the first opportunity, Jessica Simpson has always stayed pretty close to her country and conservative roots. Back in the early 2000s when most of us were still in middle or high school, Jessica Simpson was kinda a big deal. She was a country star, to be sure, but with her blonde bombshell looks she managed to cross-over into popular success on most music channels. She infamously was one of the most instrumental figures in the early days of celebrity reality TV when she and her recent husband, Nick Lachey of 98 degrees, had a show about their recent marriage called The Newlyweds. Most infamous for its "chicken of the sea" moment of stupidity, the show was also about the fact that as an old-school "wait until marriage" kind of girl Jessica Simpson was a southern girl experiencing ALL of life for the first time.

1 Mariah Carey

This one is a big shocker. Not just that Mariah Carey was reportedly a virgin when she wed for the first time in 1993 to music executive Tommy Mottola. Though they divorced, Carey remained firm on this 'no s*x until marriage point': with partner after partner after partner. While rumors swirled that Carey's engagement to James Packer was broken up because she cheated on him, the fact is, most other people she's been with claim she made them wait. Her second marriage to Nick Cannon was much of the same, and the diva-singer was very strict about keeping s*x for married life only. The private and ostentatious Carey hasn't gone into too much detail about why this is, but given so many guys have come forward to say this is nothing but the gospel truth we're inclined to believe it.
