“I’m very much about ‘no sex before marriage.’ When I was 12 years old, I said to my mom, ‘I want to follow what the Bible says—would you buy me this ring? I want to wear it and promise it.’ She got it for me, right then and there, and it was awesome. And I’ve worn it ever since. I think it’s easier when the guy believes the same thing as you do, so you’re not always fighting a battle.”
