Former 'Bachelor' Star Ben Higgins and Fiancee to Abstain From Sex Until Marriage

Former Bachelor Ben Higgins revealed that while he and fiancée Jess Clarke are quarantining together, they're sleeping in separate rooms and abstaining from sex until marriage.

"Right now she has a bedroom upstairs at her parents' house; I'm in the downstairs," he said.

Higgins discussed this while on Nick Viall's podcast, The Viall Files. Viall is also a former Bachelor franchise lead.

Higgins has previously opened up about how his Christian faith impacts his decisions.

When Viall asked Higgins point-blank about the couple's intimacy and if they were waiting to have sex until marriage, Higgins answered, "Yeah. Yeah, you're right."

This stance on sex before marriage is different from the one the most recent Bachelor lead Peter Weber took. Weber also professed Christianity.

Movieguide® previously reported that Weber's season proves that Millennials don't wait until marriage to sleep with their significant other.

Weber had previously made headlines when he and former Bachelorette star Hannah Brown confirmed they were intimate during their fantasy suite date on Brown's season of the show.

However, there are reality stars in the Bachelor world who do uphold Christian values.

Madison Prewett, a contestant on Weber's season, revealed she was saving herself for marriage.

Sean Lowe and wife Catherine waited until they were married to be physical with one another, while Ashley Iaconetti shared an Instagram post sporting a "Virginity Rocks" T-shirt.

Part of the caption reads, "Just remember to embrace your decisions and trust God's timing in your life."
