Miguel Pimente, known simply by his stage name Miguel, is a Grammy-winning recording artist, singer, songwriter and producer. At 30, he is still unmarried. What!? He is still unmarried!? Calm down ladies, he has a long-time girlfriend, model Nazanin Mandi, of 10 years (going on 11). It’s been 10 years and he hasn’t proposed yet? Here’s the reason why the “Adore” singer hasn’t popped the question yet.
He is waiting for when the time is right. I know that notion has frustrated many of us women. But listen to what he has to say. “I think because of society and how people view everything, and how everything is just so run-of-the-mill and very–what is that called? Everything is like fast food. It’s just like fast food. ‘Okay, you wanna get married? Cool! Get married!’ ‘You wanna get divorced? Get divorced.’ There’s no thought or substance behind it,” Miguel said during an appearance on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning show. “I think the pressure comes from outside because people are like, ‘Why not?!”
If you rush to get married, you may not know what you’re getting yourself into. We’ve all heard that anywhere from 40% to half of the marriages in the United States end in divorce. According to the Huffington Post, after analyzing the New York Times Data Blog Upshot, that divorce rate actually only applied to marriages in the late 1970s and early 1980s and has been dropping ever since.
