19. Bethany Hamilton

Bethany Hamilton, best-known for losing her arm amid a shark assault at 13 years old and motivating the motion picture Soul Surfer, is blunt about holding up until marriage to have intercourse.

“I think growing up I was blessed to have parents that stayed together, and have that husband and wife image of I want—an awesome husband one day that will love and support me until I die,” she said in her book, “Body and Soul.”

She continued, “And I also wanted to honor God with the way that I approached [marriage]. I definitely was patient and I didn’t mess around and [my husband is] the only guy I’ve ever kissed.”
