Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin had their reasons for tying the knot just a couple months after getting engaged, and it turns out sex was one of them!
The couple, who officially got married back in September after getting engaged in July, just told Vogue that they abstained from having sex until they were wed.
In fact, Justin explained he was celibate for about a year before he rekindled his relationship with Hailey in June.

“God doesn’t ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff. He’s like, I’m trying to protect you from hurt and pain,” the 24-year-old said.
“I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don’t feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that.”
Justin also explained he was having issues with sex and wasn’t finding meaning in sleeping around, so he decided to take a pause.
“I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul,” he shared.
“And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behavior.”
In fact, getting married just a few months after dating was one of the reasons they decided to have a quick courthouse wedding, but it wasn’t the only reason.
“When I saw her last June, I just forgot how much I loved her and how much I missed her and how much of a positive impact she made on my life,” he said.
“I was like, ‘Holy cow, this is what I’ve been looking for.’”
Justin and Hailey have technically been married for almost six months, but they are still planning on having a ceremony with family and friends very soon.
