Madison Prewett, 23, declared on Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor that she is “saving herself for marriage” because of her Christian faith. The faith-filled statement is unusual, as most contestants on the show indulge in premarital sexual activities.
“Faith is more than just this passed-down thing to me; it’s literally my whole life and all of who I am,” Prewett told Bachelor Peter Weber on their one-on-one date in Peru.
Weber verbally affirmed her honesty and said that he was raised in a Christian home and went to a Christian school but often struggles with his faith.
Prewett wanted to clear the air about her expectations and hope for a lifelong partner.
“I want, in a marriage, someone who also has that relationship with the Lord and loves that about me and wants to raise a family in that way,” Prewett continued. “I do want to know that we’re able to be on the same page with that and push each other in that way and grow in that way together.”
