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.
