These celebs waited for the wedding to cash in their V-cards.
Sometimes, being old fashioned isn't a bad thing ... like when it comes to sex and the sanctity or confines of that sacred institution of marriage. While it seems like people are having sex at an earlier clip these days, which can be terrifying, there are several celebs who waited for marriage before having sex for the first time. How romantic, right?
It's also against the grain and traditional, and actually pretty cool, too.
Did you know that singer/designer/actress Jessica Simpson was a virgin when she wed her first husband and reality show co-star Nick Lachey? Yep, she was. And she's not the only one. There are plenty of other celebs that opted not to cash in their V-cards until they swapped vows.
There is also one athletic celeb who is remaining a virgin until he finds Miss Right, due to his religious convictions, while one high octave songbird adopted a "secondary virginity" stance after divorcing her first husband, waiting until the wedding night before consummating her relationship with Hubby No. 2.
The best thing about the waiting game is that the anticipation pays off in intense ways! These awesome, march-to-the-beat-of-their-own-drum celebs waited for their wedding night before getting horizontal.
