In February’s issue of Cosmopolitan South Africa, the Grammy winning songstresssays it was important to put friendship first as a way to build intimacy. She adds, “Knowing that you’ll always have the friendship and that you can always go back to it is very important, and very powerful.” The couple announced they were expecting their first child in late October.

The “I Bet” singer went on to say that she believes women and men set their romantic expectations differently, noting, “We women think with our hearts and with our minds. When we see a guy, we envision what he’s like and whether this could be something special. Guys see us from an exterior point of view—that’s something I learnt along the way as a woman.”

It’s worth noting, of course, that before her beautiful and very morally upstanding marriage to Russell Wilson, Ciara had a very dramatic courtship and engagement with rapper Future, and he was all kinds of terrible.

So yeah, the whole friendship and intimacy and whatever else is cute and all, but abstinence isn’t for everyone Ciara, sorry. Like, if everyone believed in abstinence before marriage, we would only have half of the whole Jolie-Pitt clan, and that would be a real shame.

Nice try, though.
