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?
