Some things are worth waiting for -- just ask Olympic archer Jennifer Nichols.

The 28-year-old revealed to USWeekly that she hasn't slept with her her 25-year-old fiance Chris Hardy, adding that he was the first man she ever kissed as well.

"I saved my first kiss for the man I knew I was going to marry -- my fiance. I made that commitment when I was about 13 years old. I knew that I wanted to save my kiss on top of purity. I felt like a kiss was something very special and I wanted to save that." The couple have been dating since 2009, after they met at Texas A&M University.

Nichols isn't alone in saving herself for marriage.

Most famously, Jessica Simpson announced she was saving herself for marriage, and tied the knot with Nick Lachey in 2002 when she was 22.

Also, Kevin Jonas -- along with his brothers Nick and Joe -- wore purity rings to symbolize not having sex until they were married. Jonas and his now wife Danielle married in December 2009, when he was 22.

Another Olympian who made headlines earlier this year when she revealed she was a virgin was 29-year-old Lolo Jones.

On Real Sports with Bryant Gumble, she revealed:

“When I was 22, 24, it was cute, but 24 to 29, it’s not cute. You get judged a lot, a lot of guys won’t return your calls after they find out.”
