Believe it or not, actor Nick Cannon and music diva Mariah Carey abstained from sex while they were dating. They held this pact until they got married in 2008. “It’s not that we had NO intimacy, we just didn’t have complete intimacy. It’s just me, and my feelings. I definitely don’t want to push it on anybody else. But we both have similar beliefs, and I just thought that it would be so much more special if we waited until after we were married. And it was, and it still is” said the pop diva to Mirror in 2008.
