Soccer Superstar Ricardo Kaká Leite: Virgin Until Age 23

June 6th, 2012 by

Of course, everyone has their own opinions but I think it was worth the wait.

If you live in the United States (the only country who isn’t obsessed with Soccer), then you may not recognize the name Kaká. But to the rest of the world, Kaká is a household name. And it’s little wonder why: Kaká is a true natural, dominating the ball from the first moment he stepped onto the field at age 7 (he made it to the finals that first season). Despite the fame and money showered upon him from an early age, Kaká married his childhood sweetheart and waited until marriage to have sex.

Quotes about Waiting till Marrage

I am a great example. The majority of people say that after marriage, they don’t like jumping into bed with their partner because there is no desire. However, this is not true, my wife is the person I love and it was worth waiting.

A lot of people were surprised and shocked with me but I think it’s the best decision. I am an evangelist and I believe in those values. I think people need to prevent themselves from making love before marriage.

Of course, everyone has their own opinions but I think it was worth the wait.

Quotes from Kaka’s Wife, Caroline Celico

I found out that he was the love of my life when I got to know him on a daily basis. But I’m not gonna lie, when I saw him for the first time (I was 14, saw him at the airport and he was with his back to me.) I felt something completely different for him, and then I learned who he was. When he saw me for the first time. I asked him to sign an autograph to my friend and one to me. He wrote to my friend: “with love, from Kaka”, and to me he wrote: “Kisses, with love from Kaka”. He told me that he liked me ever since.

He is very disciplined, and sometimes it can be really annoying when he leaves way too early to avoid being late for something. He is way too nice, and sometimes I think he should be more polite and less friendly with people that misunderstand his affection.

What I admire most in him is gratitude to God. Kaka made me fall in love with God, and know that God made me discover the one and only true love for Kaka. We never were driven by passion or by fleeting moments, but by a deep love. Kaka is admirable; he is extremely disciplined and faithful to everything that is involved with.

    If yes, that would be very unfortunate. Everyone has freedom to express their mind and for me is I hate to hear that Kaka and Carol has divorced, because they somewhat has become a good example for my marriage itself.
    Yet, God has His plan to everybody. Glory and honour only to Jesus.

  73. Shiksha(from Mauritius) says:

    Hello Mr Kaka, I’m so proud of you and your achievements. It is all by the Grace Of God. I really believe that you should continue on the spiritual path which will lead you towards the one and only goal that is God. I think this modern generation is more drifting towards material objects and also sex but I can see the real person performing his duty of life and it is you. Your wife and you are heaven made couple. Please it’s a humble request, don’t the relation shatter like this. Divorce is not mention in any scriptures. Please don’t follow the modern fashion. God will never like you being divorced with your wife. It’s with your wife that you have children, how can you leave her? You are a noble person and continue to do that you will easily attain self-realisation and bliss.Hence you are the only world famous person with whom l am inspired with. I sincerely thank you.

  78. Oye (Nigeria) says:

    Kaka, you have been an inspiration to me in my stewardship in God’s kingdom. I have learnt from you expressly & by conduct that you can be wealthy & good looking and still be on fire for Jesus! I am certain that millions around the world have come to know Jesus through your actions both on the pitch & everywhere. God bless you sir. Jesus is proud of you bro! I don’t want you to be downcast by the divorce. The Devil is a liar & failure. In the name of Jesus Christ my God will intervene & restore your marriage. Love you so much sir!

  79. Alex says:

    Unfortunately Kaka and his wife divorced and it is believed that her wife was unfaithful to him and that’s why they divorced. Even if it is important to wait till marriage because you have to follow God’s command and if you love God you want to follow His commands and glorify Him in your life by our actions, behaviour and attitude, this does not means that you will have a perfect marriage or the person next to you will not leave you. After all it all depends if they truly are born again Christians or not. So sad for Kaka, hope God will call him to find true happiness in Christ and no other person as Christ.

  80. Elijah (NIGERIA) says:

    Anytime i reads about Evangelist Kaka, It’s reminds of GOD, myself and My future partner… Waiting on GOD for the Right person is crucial and essential. GOD is faithful and HE will give us Peace no matter what… I LOVE JESUS. Love you, Ricardo kaka

  81. Emuobo Madago says:
