"I wanted to do a relationship talk about abstinence, I believe it can be a great thing if you're doing it for the right reasons, but if you are doing it to push marriage or if you're doing it to appear wholesome don't because eventually your true intentions will emerge."

Tony goes on to reference Stephen and Ayesha Curry as great role models while also noting that no relationship should be placed on a pedestal as perfection is unrealistic and comparison is misguided. "No one knows the true struggles that couples endure with the exception of the couple's themselves."
