Getting us right in the feels, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have revealed that they waited until marriage to have sex and the reason behind it. After the “Baby” singer married Baldwin in a secret ceremony last year, they’re opening up on their time together.
Following an eclectic dating history and his on-again, off-again relationship with Selena Gomez, Bieber had an equally up and down romance with Baldwin. However, the pair finally made it official and tied the knot.
Speaking to Vogue, the young lovers explained why they held off on consummating their relationship. After discussing his previous problems with sex, Bieber told the outlet how he wanted to “re-dedicate” himself to God.
“God doesn’t ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff. He’s like, ‘I’m trying to protect you from hurt and pain,'” he said.
Bieber continued, “I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don’t feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that.”
Bieber said that he was celibate for over a year before marrying Baldwin. This was a big part of why their nuptials were so important to both of them. He admitted, “When I saw her last June, I just forgot how much I loved her and how much I missed her and how much of a positive impact she made on my life.” After his tumultuous past, Bieber confessed, “I was like, ‘Holy cow, this is what I’ve been looking for.'”
The 24-year-old explained how his late nights and party lifestyle are behind him. Being thrust into the limelight at such a young age, it’s easy to see how Bieber was forced to grow up ahead of his time. Thankfully, Bieber and Baldwin are solid as they settle into married life.
It seems like it was meant to be with Baldwin, following their 10-year friendship and a whirlwind relationship of just 12 weeks before they got married. After making official at a courthouse, the loved-up pair is still planning a proper wedding.

It’s not all roses and love songs though. Baldwin admitted, “The thing is, marriage is very hard…That is the sentence you should lead with. It’s really effing hard.”
Alongside the likes of Chris Pratt, Bieber is bucking the trend of ‘cool’ Christian celebrities. Faith is clearly important to him, so it’s cute he waited until the big day to get between the sheets with Baldwin.
