Before her marriage to Miranda Pearman-Maday, Raven-Symoné wasn't taking any chances when it came to dating.

The Cosby star revealed on the Howie Mandel Does Stuffpodcast recently that while she was in the dating phase of her life, she made everyone sign an NDA.

She revealed:

“All of my relationships, especially – obviously – when I started dating, I had to get people to sign NDAs."
“It took me a while to wrap my head around it because it’s very impersonal, but someone in our position needs to do that."

When host Howie Mandel inquired as to the appropriate timing to deliver the paperwork, the Disney star replied:

“Before the naughty times come.”

They both laughed, but she confirmed:

“No, I’m serious — right before naughty time comes.”

Many people on social media agreed that having people sign an NDA was a necessary and smart move for the actor.

A few, however, felt the paperwork added an impersonal touch on a potential relationship.

Elsewhere in the podcast, the That's So Raven star shared her now-wife signed the NDA about two months into their relationship.

She revealed she was reluctant because she felt something "different" with Pearman-Maday but knew the signing needed to transpire.

And while Pearman-Maday was a little thrown off because she, too, felt the "something different," she understood that it was necessary.

“We both were like, ‘This takes away the genuineness of it all, but we also understood that we live in Hollywood."
"She knows who she is. So she did it.”
