Pop sensation Justin Bieber and supermodel Hailey (née Baldwin) opened up about their young marriage and how church was always the one thing that brought them back together before they tied the knot.
According to the Christian Post, in a cover story interview with Vogue Magazine, the pop singer revealed that his Christian faith encouraged him to break the chains of drug and sex addiction right before he met his now wife.
Bieber told Vogue that following romantic turmoil and the continued publication of bad behavior, he vowed to turn his life around and rededicate himself to God. One thing Bieber said he was determined to do, was to stay chaste until marriage, and when he met his now wife Hailey Baldwin, that is exactly what they did. He said, “[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.”
He continued, “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.”
“I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul. And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behavior,” Bieber added.
Hailey Bieber also shared with the fashion magazine that their relationship was not always a good or healthy one.
According to Vogue, the supermodel shared that the two first met when her father Stephen Baldwin and Justin’s mother Pattie Mallette – both born again Christians – became friends. Hailey told Vogue that the two did not become fast friends, in part, because of the three-year age difference. A few years later, however, Hailey noted that the two ran into each other at the Hillsong Church campus in New York and quickly became best friends. The pair briefly dated, but it ended with betrayal and heartbreak. It would be three years before the pair would finally be able to face each other again. In June 2018, the two ran into each other at a Christian conference hosted by Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. in Miami and they decided to spark up their relationship again.
