Nick Cannon Is Swearing Off Marriage After Mariah Carey

DUJOUR

Mariah Carey may have ruined marriage for Nick Cannon. Either that or Nick Cannon may have ruined marriage for himself.

“I feel like marriage isn’t for everyone,” the “America’s Got Talent” host told DuJour Magazine. “A friend of mine put it the funniest way. He said, ‘If you heard that there was a 50/50 chance of living or dying when you jump out of a plane, you probably wouldn’t go skydiving.’ There’s like a 50/50 chance of marriage working. If it didn’t work out for you the first time, and you still survived it, you probably shouldn’t do it again.”

Cannon, 35, and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Mariah Carey, 45, were married for seven years from 2008 to 2015.

“I never ever in my life want to have to — how do I say this the right way — not to say that I was bogged down [in my marriage], because I wasn’t by any means, but I like being able to make my own decisions and come and go as I please,” the father of two explained.

Mariah is currently dating Australian businessman James Packer but Nick says he’s not quite ready to jump back in the water.

“I’ve had friends and we hang out, but I’m not ready to do anything serious,” he told Ellen DeGeneres in December.

What are your thoughts on marriage? Would you have the courage to make a second or even third attempt at marital bliss if the first time things went sour?

    He’s too immature and it’s best he stay single. The ladies that he gets involved with need to know and understand that Nick is not the marrying type.

    Each individual has to make up that decision for themselves. My thoughts on marriage is that it is beautiful, many people love it, and marriages are blessings. Marriage should be voluntary and filled with respect. Also, marriages should be taken seriously. Marriages can be fun, but a marriage shouldn’t be treated as a game. Not everyone will be married. I don’t believe in forcing anyone to be married if that person doesn’t want marriage. Hypothetically, if I was a divorced person, then I will try marriage again and again. That’s just me personally. Nick Cannon has made his decision. That’s his business.

    Whenever I hear someone say they’ll never get married again after a divorce, it lets me know right away that they are not relationship material. If the divorce wasn’t your fault, and you’re mature enough to separate your ex’s faults from his/her gender then what are you afraid of? The only logical conclusion is that you don’t want to get married because you know you make a terrible spouse. And because of that I won’t say Mariah ruined marriage for Nick. He just wasn’t husband material and it played out as such.

      I agree with you. A lot of people get married for the wrong reasons and/or have a distorted view of marriage. You have to be responsible and mature in order to remain married. It takes more than effort, it takes real work. Listening to him he wasn’t ready to give up the bachelor lifestyle. If you want to go in and out as you please you should stay single.

      Do you not think its ok to be single? Perhaps it’s an economic harm to marry again. Perhaps someone walked away from something harmful and just needs to vent. Maybe he will, maybe he won’t.

      Those two are so annoying I was hoping it would last forever.

        I think it’s perfectly fine to be single. My only issue is when I come across divorced dudes who try to make it seem like the reason they’re divorced is b/c there was something wrong w/the wife, but then turn around and say they’ll never get married again. Either the wife was the problem & you never get married to HER again, or you are the problem & you’re saving the rest of us from marrying YOU, but it can’t be her fault that you’ll never get married again. That logic screams B/S.

    Honestly, if he feels this way now, most likely deep down he felt that way then. And you know what, there is NOTHING wrong with saying you are not marriage material, the marrying kind or don’t want to be a Mr. or Mrs. just be honest with yourself and other people. The world is not going to end, it doesn’t mean you are unhappy, not an adult, or not living a full life. Most people need to be honest with themselves about marriage and what it means to be married. Too many people aren’t ready to adjust their lifestyle, focus and do that shift to work in husband/wife mode. And by the interview, it looks like Nick wasn’t ready to do that, if you want to make your own decision and come and go as you please you clearly not ready to be married.

      Yes Binks preach that word. The problem is like Den Un said is that the people that know they don’t want to be married or tied down often go after the ones that do and not the ones that don’t. For too many people its like a game or something and on the other hand way too many people settle in situations with people that they know don’t want the same things as them.

    Then I hope the women he dates don’t think they can change that. Ironically men who don’t want to marry tend to target women who do.

        Its just a disclaimer he’ll pull out to avoid being held accountable for any future inconsistencies in his behavior. I ain’t gonna tell a woman “you knew better” just because its easier than telling a man the same.

    His logic is ridiculous.
    If he examines statistics for his life choice then he should understand the other choices that wont work in his favor either. Admit that you are Peter Pan and please don’t share this wisdom with your kids.

    He doesn’t even sound like a 35 year old man. He should have applied that 50/5 rule to some of his movie choices. Just be a mature person and say right now in my life I’m not ready for a serious relationship.

    His decision, and it is a wise one to not rush into it again. Of course, women will jump on him and say he was immature or just wants to be a player or whatever, but no one knows what went on in their marriage. He could be hurt from it and not willing to be hurt again. Many of us women would be applauded for wanting to be independent if we got divorced but when a guy says it, he’s called out for his decision. Pretty unfair for us to decide what is best for his life.

    If he’s evaluated himself — and it seems as though he has — and he realizes marriage isn’t for him, it would be unwise to get married again. I believe self-evaluation is the key to deciding whether to remarry or not.

      You’re right.

      Self reflection is always an important part of life. Marriage should be taken seriously.

          Thank you Sister. Life is too short for idleness and massive regrets. Sometimes, the single life is meant for people and sometimes, the married life is meant for others. People should be honest with their intentions. We all respect true love too.

                Hey Truth, I’m sorry for just now replying to this message. I’m just now seeing it. My day is going so-so. We are still mourning the death of my brother-in-law. Other than that, I can’t complain. How’s your day going?

                  I’m so sorry about the passing of your brother in law. I send prayers and condolences to you and to the rest of your family. I’m doing great today. It’s a cold day where I’m from.

                    Thank you, brother. I appreciate that. It’s been cold here too, Truth. I’m in Fayetteville, NC, and the temperatures have hit the teens. Brrrrr!

                      Brrr. LOL. Fayetteville is near the hills I think. The teens are very cold. I’m lucky since it is only 29 where I’m from now. I had to rock my big coat with the designs on it.

    He may need to be with someone less controlling next time.
