Miz Maynard — who is still one of the only Bachelorettes with a child — also opens up about choosing to stay celibate before her wedding day. She tells People:

"I knew the person I would wait with was going to be my husband. I always knew after [having sex in past relationships], this is not right. I'm not supposed to be doing this. I felt like I had broken God's heart so many times before, by all the times I'd messed up and done things God would be sad about. I just wanted to do something purposefully so I could show God how much I love Him by obeying his word."

For them, this decision made their bond stronger than ever, and now they have a 7-month-old son Jennings together:

"Not having sex brought us closer. Because it wasn't just focused on that, it was about getting to know our hearts. It really brought us closer together. And after you get married, you have something to look forward to!"

Whatever floats your boat!
