.- The Brazilian soccer superstar known as Kaka has said that both he and his wife, Caroline, were virgins when they married. Kaka has long been known for both his outspoken Christian faith and his remarkably good looks.

“The Bible teaches that true love waits until marriage,” Kaka told the Italian edition of Vanity Fair. “If our life today is so beautiful, I think it is because we waited," he said about his marriage. 

The soccer star admitted that it was not easy to stay a virgin until his wedding night, and that even still there are challenges to living faithfully.  “There are always temptations,” but the sacrifices the couple made for each other have been more than worth it, he said.

The couple’s chaste relationship prior to marriage "was important, as it tested our love," said Kaka.

Kaka’s interview was published shortly after Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen called the Church’s teachings on sex “ridiculous”.

Bundchen’s remarks in an interview with a Brazilian newspaper followed closely on the heels of Pope Benedict’s visit to Brazil, during which he repeatedly restated the Church’s teachings on social issues, exhorting Brazilians to live up to Catholic ideals.

Bundchen said no one in the modern world can be chaste or wait until marriage to have sex. "Today no one is a virgin when they get married ... show me someone who's a virgin!" she said. She criticized the Church’s moral teachings saying: "How is it possible to not want people to use condoms and also not have abortions? It's impossible, I'm sorry."

"It's ridiculous to ban contraceptives,” she continued. “You only have to think of the diseases that are transmitted without them. I think it should be compulsory to use a contraceptive."
