Pre-marital sex is one of the big problems our society is facing today. Due to too much liberty and open-mindedness, a lot of young men and women engage to pre-marital sex which is slowly becoming a normal thing nowadays, in fact, being sexually active seems to be a social trend in today’s generation.
Unfortunately, most of the youngsters are deeply engaged with pre-marital sex because of factors such as peer pressure, exploring their sexuality, or what they see in television and movies. With that being said, it is only safe to assume that nowadays it is hard to find someone who is willing to stay pure until they found the one and commit to marriage. And in case they found one, the society would automatically label them as “weird” or “too pure”.
As the society became worst, there are still some women who chose to stand by their values and remain pure before marriage and some of them are one of the celebrities we look up to.
To give some evidence, below is the list of female celebrities who proudly declare that they never engaged in pre-marital sex and waited or still waiting for marriage before finally giving themselves.
The famous TV host has been very vocal on her stand against sex before marriage, in fact, she proudly showcased her chastity ring to prove it. In one of her interviews, Nikki Gil admitted, “I think everyone knows and have made fun of it. Nobody told me to stay a virgin or because I’m a stuck-up pure na holy-holy. It’s my choice”. Rumor has it that Nikki and his former long-time boyfriend Billy Crawford broke up because the latter cheated on her because she does not want to engage in pre-marital sex. But despite the failed relationship, Nikki is now happily married to her businessman husband, BJ Albert.
Long-time celebrity couple Iya Villania and Drew Arellano are now happily married with a cute little son, but they have also been very vocal that they waited until marriage before engaging in sexual activities. Iya said in one of her interviews, “You know, I don’t look down upon other girls who practice it. It doesn’t make you less of a person. Kanya-kanyang values ‘yan e. But, personally, I do believe that one should not practice pre-marital sex.”
The former Kapuso actress and model is now married to Alister Kurze to whom she had a mutual decision not to have sex or even kiss before marriage. “When we get together one day, he was like, ‘You know, it would be very hard for me not to kiss you. But I want to wait until we get married, I hope you don’t mind,” Jewel revealed in one of her interviews. “We believe that sex is God’s presence,” she added. “We believe that sexual intercourse, or physical and emotional union should be a means of celebrating love, producing children, protected by the commitment of marriage,” she explained.
The singer and songwriter Yeng said that not engaging in pre-marital sex is her way of honoring God and her parents. She and her husband wanted their friendship to be the foundation of their relationship instead of sex. In one of her interviews, Yeng said: “It’s another level that you have to save, that’s for me. Maraming lalaki rin na iyon ang primary na gusto sa babae, kapag naibigay mo na, bye. Mati-test din ng babae yung lalaki kung hanggang kalian kaya siyang hintayin or without it, “mamahalin pa rin ba ako.”
The actress, singer, and TV host admitted that it was also difficult for her o advocate chastity but she strongly believes that love should always be greater than lust. She said, “Naniniwala ako na love should be unconditional. Hindi porke’t mahal mo ang isang tao eh dapat ang condition mo ay dapat sexually compatible.

She strongly believes that sex should only be done after marriage, “That’s my belief. You say no. If they try to push you, you step away, because that person doesn’t value you, doesn’t value the relationship as much. If the guy is willing to sacrifice that, that means a lot,” she said.
Miss Universe 2012 runner-up is still single but vows to keep her chastity, she believes that finding a man who can truly wait for marriage before sex if hard by worth the wait of true love. She said, “Wala nang lalaki na ganyan na mag-sa-sacrifice and yung rerespetuhin ka nang ganon, iyong talagang papanindigan na ‘This is my stand, this is my principle.’ For me, marriage is sacred. Ngayon kasi parang nagiging norm na lang eh, sa tao na ‘Come on, let’s do it.’ Pero iba pa rin siguro yung pakiramdam pag ginawa mo siya after.”
