Ten years in any relationship can seem like an eternity if the couple isn’t married.
For Miguel, it doesn’t look to be anything major as he opened up about why hasn’t put a ring on the finger of his longtime girlfriend Nazanin Mandi after 10 years of dating. To hear him tell it, marriage is something he isn’t willing to take lightly.
“I think it’s more about working. The thing is, you got to know who you are as a person, first of all,” Miguel recently explained to a New York radio station. “I think I’ve come so far as a man and I’m just starting to feel solid where I can be like, ‘You know what? I think I can hold this down legitimately.’ I think now people throw things around like marriage. I just wasn’t raised like that.”
While many guys feel a bit of pressure to pop the question or jump the broom with the apple of their eye after a certain amount of time, Miguel mentioned that he doesn’t feel any pressure to move in that direction at this time.
“I don’t feel pressure because I know that when I commit, I really commit,” he said. Now it’s just thrown around because it’s so easy to breakup. And I’m just not that kind of person. I’m just not gonna do that. I wouldn’t do that to her. That’s just not how I was raised. I just don’t feel like that would be honorable.”
Ok. That’s good, but how is Nazanin feeling about this?
Although he didn’t reveal anything about receiving pressure from his girlfriend to get down on bended knee, one thing Miguel did say was that Nazanin has accepted that he is “wild at heart.”
“I’m wild at heart. I just follow my instincts and that’s what this album is about,” the entertainer shared. “I think she’s learned that and she’s had to adjust and had to learn and also embrace. And I love her more for that.”
So with all that, does this mean that Miguel has a green light to occasionally sleep with other women? When asked if that means he occasionally sleeps with other women, he decided to play coy.
“I just know I’m wild at heart, man,” he responded while playing coy.
So there it is. What say you ladies? Would you be able to be with someone for 10 years and not have your man take steps to unite with you in holy matrimony?
Fellas, do you see anything wrong with Miguel’s explanation for marrying Nazanin or is this truly nothing to sweat over?
