Tim Tebow is a devout Christian, and part of engaging in a devout Christian lifestyle involves a vow of chastity prior to marriage. Now sources are claiming Olivia Culpo dumped Tim Tebow because he wouldn’t engage in premarital sex.

According to the New York Daily News, “He was really into her. He was sending her love letters and cute notes and professing his love for her…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.”
A source tells E! News, however, that the split had nothing to do with Tim Tebow’s vow of chastity. They also report that the split was a mutual and amicable one.
Tim Tebow isn’t the only person from the NFL world to abstain from sex before marriage. Russell Wilson and singer Ciara Harris won’t be having sexual relations until they get married either.

“We’re not going to be perfect, by any means. But He’s anointed both of us and He’s calling for us to do something special,” Wilson said in a recent interview.
Like Tim Tebow, Russell Wilson has suffered much ridicule for his devout lifestyle.
Tim Tebow was allegedly seeing former 19 Kids and Counting star Jana Duggar prior to dating Olivia Culpo, but that was never confirmed. He certainly wouldn’t have run into abstinence being a problem with Jana Duggar.

While it remains uncertain whether Olivia Culpo and Tim Tebow were even exclusively dating or if they split up because of his no premarital sex beliefs, the two are reportedly on good terms.
Since neither side is talking, this may be all fans ever get to know.
