Justin Bieber says he didn't have sex for a year and that Hailey Baldwin was his 'reward for good behavior'
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin briefly dated in 2009 before reconciling and tying the knot in a private ceremony in September last year
Vogue's March issue will feature megastar Justin Bieber and wife Hailey Baldwin on the cover. The 'Baby' hitmaker opened up to the magazine about his relationship with Hailey before the duo took the holy vows in September last year.
The 24-year-old singer-songwriter told Vogue that one of the best decisions the couple made was abstaining from sex before marriage.
“God doesn’t ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff," he told the magazine. "He’s like, 'I’m trying to protect you from hurt and pain'. 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."
He continued, "I wanted to rededicate myself to god in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul. And I believe that god blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behavior.”
According to Justin, he had been celibate for a year in June 2018. During his abstinence, he reconciled with Selena Gomez, before the couple split in spring 2018. However, it is widely believed that Justin and Hailey, 22, got married as soon as possible because the former was tired of waiting to have sex.
“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," Justin said. "I was like, ‘Holy cow, this is what I’ve been looking for.’”
Having first met in 2009 when they dated briefly, the pair had had a bad breakup. According to Hailey, the fallout stemmed from Justin being unfaithful to her. “Negative things happened that we still need to talk about and work through. Fizzled would not be the right word — it was more like a very dramatic excommunication. There was a period where if I walked into a room, he would walk out," she said.
That said, all's well that ends well. The couple reconciled in June 2018 and dated for three months before tying the knot in a private ceremony in September last year. According to reports, the pair is planning to throw a big fat wedding party for their loved ones in the near future.
