Sadie Robertson of Duck Dynasty and Dancing With the Stars fame says she is saving herself for marriage, and boyfriend Blake Coward is on board.
That doesn’t mean it’s an easy thing for her, though.
The 17-year-old admits she’s having a tough time dealing with her decision to preserve her virginity, even though it’s a choice she is sure is right for her.
One of this fall’s best Dancing with the Stars competitors discussed what that means for Blake Coward, whom she has been dating for 10 months.
“People are like, ‘It must be easy for you because you’re Christian.’ That doesn’t make it any easier for me,” Sadie Robertson tells Us Weekly magazine.
“It’s something a couple really has to decide together.”
Fortunately for the daughter of Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson and Korie Robertson, her beau shares her beliefs when it comes to pre-marital sex.
“I don’t really date guys who don’t feel the same way,” Sadie says. “It’s going to be way harder if we went into a relationship having different opinions on that.”
Sadie goes on to add that Blake Coward was “raised in the same kind of family” as she is and even worships at the “same kind” of church as the Robertsons.
Does that mean we can expect an engagement sooner rather than later, as we saw with her brother John Luke Robertson engaged at the age of 19?
“You never know who you’re going to end up with,” she says.
“Who knows if my boyfriend will be my husband? I’ve always thought that I would marry young, but it just depends on if I have the right guy with me.”
The Robertson clan recently celebrated the engagement of 19-year-old John Luke, Sadie’s brother and the oldest of the couple’s three biological kids.
John Luke, Sadie and younger sister Bella are joined by foster daughter Rebecca and the family’s adopted son, Will, to round out the Louisiana household.
Although she has been living in Los Angeles filming DWTS, Sadie says that her relationship with Coward is going really well despite the distance.
