Sadie Robertson, daughter of Duck Dynasty family members Willie and Korie Robertson, is coming into her own. She recently told TVGuide that she is not meekly following her family’s faith path anymore.
“For my whole life I’ve kind of been shadowing what my family says,” Robertson said. “They’ll say something about my faith and I agree. But now, it’s time for me to say, ‘This is who I am as well.’ I’m not hiding behind my family anymore. I’m sharing my faith by myself, which has helped me to be more bold and more confident saying things. It’s the same God; it’s the same faith. It’s just my opportunity to share it in my words. And I have enjoyed it. It’s been good for me and I’ve grown a lot from it.”
One of the facets of her faith that Sadie Robertson is adamant about is saving herself for marriage. In a recent interview with Us Weekly, she talked about her decision.
“I don’t really date guys who don’t feel the same way,” Robertson said. “It’s going to be way harder if we went into a relationship having different opinions about that. It’s something a couple really has to decide together.”
Just because she has a particular religious path she follows doesn’t make sticking to her guns any easier for Robertson.
“People are like, ‘It must be easy for you because you’re Christian.’ That doesn’t make it any easier for me,” Robertson said.
Many people who want to be exclusive with one person, but figure they are currently in a relationship that they intend to stay in forever, will allow sex in that monogamous setting. Not Robertson.
“You never know who you’re going to end up with. Who knows if my boyfriend will be my husband?” she said. “I’ve always thought that I would marry young, but it just depends on if I have the right guy with me.”
