Ever Wonder Why Enrique Iglesias Won't Marry Anna Kournikova — Even After 11 Years?

| Filed under: Love LineEnrique Iglesias

Enrique Anna No Ring

It was a mystery.

Why won't Enrique Iglesias marry Anna Kournikova? They've been together for 11 years!

Well, there IS a reason, and he has opened up about it!

Here's what he said, when asked why he called Anna his wife on stage:

"It was just meant to be sweet in the moment. 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." 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. 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."

Honestly, we can't blame him with all the high profile divorces. But having been with her for 11 years gives us a lot of hope that it's one that would last if given the chance!

But all in all, that's up to them — and we're okay with it!

Do U think they should get hitched??

    Why buy the cow when you can milk it all you want for free?

    Marriage isn't a top priority, or even a priority at all for some people. I don't think anyone "should get married", I think they should do what is best for them, and have the right to. I have been with the same person now for going on six years and we are not married. We both would like to at some point, but for us it really isn't a top priority and other things have to come first ( like the needs of our children ). We are not religious, so it isn't like this big important thing we NEED to do, it's simply something we want to do. Need trumps want though, and we are very selfless people.

    They are doing great not being married, I don't they don't need to! Especially being in Hollywood, there are too many pressures as it it. If it works, don't change it!

    that's a really cute picture of them

    I agree with the logic that marriage is just a formality and not necessary to prove you are committed to someone. But at the same time I get annoyed when people who aren't married use the term "wife" or "husband". If you don't agree with the concept then don't adopt the terminology. That would be like someone addressing themselves as "Dr." while refusing to get a medical license.

    He does talk a lot about children.. doesn't he?

    Marriage is for: religious people; insecure people; golddigger people; women who want to be a queen for a day; and people who need health insurance or want a tax break. Obviously they are not any of the above. :)

    Honestly.. i think people who get all caught up in the moment of makign a statement get married for all the wrong reasons. you see them all giggly blowing their money on a wedding and you can't help but roll your eyes.

    I've been with my husband longer Enrique and never married and have kids. I have no desire to either. I think it's stupid. If you can't stand up on your own why take someone down with you. you should love yourself first rather than put all the dependence onto someone else who CANT be there for the rest of your life and probably wont. It's a crutch to me.

    Call me old fashioned but I couldn't imagine being with someone that long and not getting married. Not that marriage is my top priority or the end all, be all or anything…just personally if I am going to spend my life with someone, I want to make those promises to each other. To me marriage still means forever and that's important to me. (Not to mention avoiding all the legal mess that can happen if something goes wrong).

    However, if Enrique and Anna are both happy with not being married, to each his own.

    If you're ok with Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis (not married or engaged), then you should be ok with this couple. It would be hypocritical of you if you weren't. Just because they don't have kids thrown into the mix doesn't mean they're relationship is less legit. More and more people aren't getting married anymore, because we live in modern times that realizes that marriage was pretty much based on a sexist thing in the past, and that a piece of paper isn't going to make you relationship more real than it is.

    Why is it always "why Enrique I won't marry Anna Kournikova?" Maybe SHE doesn't want to marry HIM!!

    I know very few women who are truly "OK" with being with a man a long time and not getting married. They go along with it and say they are cool with it just to keep the guy. Guys are guys - they'll hold off as long as possible when they get all the benefits of marriage without it being legal.



  13. 13

    Firt, it is THEIR business.
    But with a 50% divorce rate, what is the definition of marriage?
    What is important is to be in a committed relationship.
    Marriage doe not ensure that.



  14. 14

    Re: meteoric1 – You are absolutely right. I know so many women who said it was just fine not to be married but jumped at the chance as soon as the guy finally proposed. I still feel that if the person doesn't want to marry you, they just aren't into you enough for that kind of commitment.



  15. 15

    Because his mole told him not to.



  16. 16

    Agreed. On every point.

    Ive been with my partner for 11 years also. We arnt married and I agree COMPLETLY with everything Enrique said. Its the exact same way I feel. A piece of paper isnt going to make a difference. We are about to have our first child (due next week….eeeeeek!) and the only reason I see us getting married is if for some reason as she gets older our daughter really wants us too

    If I were her, I would leave! She has no future with him! She is not his next of kin! She is just a friend in the eyes of the law!

    Gee, I wonder why there are no kids. Maybe she wants them to, oh, I don't know, have a last name…
