Tim Tebow is known for his commitment to Christian values, and he is in the news once again for staying true to his convictions.
Tebow’s girlfriend, 2012 Miss U.S.A. Olivia Culpo, reportedly broke up with him because he is staying true to his commitment not to have sex until marriage.
The couple had been dating for a few months, and sources report that Tebow was very enamored with Culpo.
“[Tebow] was really into her, he was sending her love letters and cute notes and professing his love for her,” QPolitical.com reports.
“She had to break up with him because she just couldn’t handle it. He still hits her up, but she just can’t deal with the sex thing. He’s pretty adamant about it, I guess.”
Usmagazine.com reports that Tebow and Culpo met at church through mutual friends. Us also reports that, although many sources say the reason for the breakup was Tebow’s commitment to abstinence, timing likely played a role as well.
Before dating Tebow, Culpo had just come out of a long-term relationship with singer Nick Jonas, and it is speculated that she was not ready to start a new relationship with Tebow.
Note: Although I’ve never personally spoken to Tim Tebow or heard his testimony in Jesus Christ, if these actions are true, it is a wonderful testimony for this day and age that Christian boys can look to in order to become Christian men.
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. (1Corinthians 6:9-11)
