15 Celebrities Who Avoided Sex before Marriage


Adriana Lima


Despite being linked to many handsome men like rock Lenny Kravitz and Derek Jeter, Adriana Lima has maintained one with the teachings of the Catholic church, telling GQ last 2006 that she is a virgin. She went on to marry her now ex-husband Marko Jaric, whom she shares two daughters with.

Lisa Kudrow


Lisa Kudrow is another star who waited until she tied the knot before giving up her virginity. That happened after she married her husband, Michael Stern, a French advertising executive, at the age of 32. Together they have a son named Julian Murray, who is now 17.

Courtney Stodden


Courtney Stodden is no stranger to criticism. The now 21-year-old reality star was famous for marrying 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson when she was just sixteen. Surprisingly, though, Stodden has gone to say that she was a virgin before she married him, and it looks like the two are still going strong together.

Julianne Hough


Julianne Hough jumped on the purity bandwagon, but when she began dating American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, that ring had been noticeably absent from her finger. The former Dancing with the Stars regular did an interview with Cosmo Girl long before that, though, stating that “the choice to have sex before marriage is an individual one, but if you’re just with one person, it’s only for one good reason, and [waiting to have sex] will strengthen that relationship.”

Jessica Simpson


At age 22, pop star Jessica Simpson married boy band member Nick Lachey in front of cameras for MTV’s Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. But before that, Simpson had made a promise to her father to remain pure until she married. She and Lachey are no longer together; he has since moved on with host Vanessa Minnillo and Simpson with NFL player Eric Johnson. Simpson and Johnson have two children together.
