Enrique Iglesias Will Never Put A Ring On It

Enrique Iglesias will not be marrying Anna Kournikova. He'll knock her up and start a family, sure, but walking down the aisle is out of the question.

Anna Kournikova has Enrique Iglesias' parents to blame for her unwed status. The singer and the tennis player have been a happy couple for over a decade, but his childhood trauma means the pair will never tie the knot.

Speaking of his anti-marriage stance, Enrique Iglesias said during a recent interview, "I've never really thought marriage would make a difference. Maybe it's because I come from divorced parents, but I don't think you love someone more because of a piece of paper."

The 36-year-old is, of course, son of famous singer Julio Iglesias. The Spanish singer wed journalist Isabel Preysler in 1971, and had a trio of children. Enrique, youngest of the brood, was just 4 years old when his parents' marriage was annulled.

Despite being quite clear about his resolve not to marry, rumors have circulated that Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova secretly wed years ago. Adding fuel to that fire was the singer's use of the word "wife" when referencing his sweetheart during a concert in Russia last year.

"It was just meant to be sweet in the moment," he explained to Parade when asked directly about the incident. "I honestly didn't mean to confuse people. I thought it'd be easier for the audience to understand than if I said 'my girl.'"

That "girl" may someday become mother to his child. Enrique Iglesias further affirmed his anti-marriage position by explaining, "And nowadays, it's not taboo to have kids and not be married. What makes a difference is that you're a good parent, period."

Do you agree with Enrique Iglesias that marriage doesn't matter anymore?

Marriage still does matter. It's what YOU put into marriage that makes it matter. Children feel more secure when their parents are married, people feel more secure when they are married and it forces you to work on your problems more when the alternative is a lengthy divorce process. Get a life Enrique and put a ring on that woman's finger and sign the "meaningless" paper document.

I totally agree with Enrique. And Anna seems to as well for sticking around as long as she has without the marriage commitment. It isn't for everyone, and that's ok. It isn't taboo to be unconventional anymore. And seeing how many marriages don't work out is just all the more reason to stay dating if that's working for you.

I think that what has happened to the institution of marriage has made it not matter anymore to many people, but I still believe in it. I know it can be hard to believe in marriage when you have experienced it failing so many times (I come from divorced parents too) but I think it is still something sacred and to be desired.
