The star doesn’t want to limit her options
Hilary Duff began dating fitness trainer Jason Walsh after her divorce from Mike Comrie in 2014. And although she insists they are happy together, the star isn’t looking forward to marriage again because that would limit her options.
The 29-year-old star shared her opinion on keeping one man for the rest of her life on The Love Bomb podcast, adding: “I have dreams and aspirations, but I’ve never really been one of those people who has set dates: ‘I’m this age, so this, this and this needs to happen.’ That’s just not really realistic.
I have a kid. My life is very fully, so I feel blessed and lucky. There are still things I want to do and experiences I want to have, and maybe more kids, but it’s not like it needs to happen at this time and I need to be married. All those pressures need to go away. Plus, the idea of being with one person forever is too scary to think about.”
However, she’s open to discussing the possibility of marriage if her boyfriend really wanted to explore that path.
She continued: “I don’t feel the need to get married again. As much as I was ready and excited, you’re like, ‘Oh, next step: We get married.’ That’s kind of the traditional person I’m talking about that’s inside of me. But I don’t feel the need. I got to have the experience and it was awesome. So, I guess if it mattered to someone else that much, I would consider it.”
Hilary made headlines in 2014 when she decided to end her marriage to the retired professional athlete. Despite their relationship not working out, the actress-singer insists there were no hard feelings.
“It is a sacred thing, obviously. It’s something to be taken very seriously, and I was so happy to be married. I think that I was in a very successful marriage for a long time.
I never want to have any negative…I mean, that’s hard to say: ‘no negative feelings.’ But we got together based on love and we separated in a very loving way.”
