Now this is something you don’t hear very often these days: Ciara and Russell Williams are dating but are in a celibate relationship. Russell confirmed they were dating in an interview with Pastor Miles Peterson but said they were abstaining from sexual relations for religious reasons.
I said to her – and she completely agreed – ‘Can we love each other without that?’ If you can love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody.”
He has a good point! There’s no confusing compatibility for physical chemistry in a celibate relationship ;).
Russell admitted he needed help sticking with that, however, joking:
I’m not going to lie, I need you all to pray for me.”
Russell is a devout Christian who divorced his high school sweetheart in April 2014. Ciara and Russell have been seen together for a while but haven’t discussed their relationship. However, Ciara posted the main picture above on Instagram last week:
Russell said he had thought he’d end up with Ciara before he even met her.
The funny thing is that I told somebody ‘That’s the girl I want to be with’ even before I met her. I said, ‘I’m probably going to end up with Ciara.’ “
Both of them have relied on their faith to overcome difficulties in previous relationships.
I knew that God had brought me into her life to bless her and for her to bless me.”
They certainly are a good looking couple! I hope things work out for them.
