Romantic relationships can have their fair share of bumps in the road – whether you’re a football legend, a chart-topping singer or just a regular person on the street. And while for some married couples, the bond becomes stronger with time, others eventually decide to call it a day and look elsewhere to start from scratch. After all, who’s to say that you won’t find true love just around the corner? When Russell Wilson and Ciara found romance together, though, they ultimately made a decision that caused some controversy: to keep things chaste until after they had wed. And when the pair candidly opened up about their decision to abstain, what they said may just get others doing the same.
Furthermore, Ciara and Wilson’s choice may have been influenced by what they had both gone through in past relationships. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback had previously been wed before to high school sweetheart Ashton Meem, although the couple ultimately split in 2014 after just two years of marriage.
