Janet Jackson, Jermaine Dupri open up about marriage

Speaking in an interview at the New York premier of ‘Why Did I Get Married’, Jackson, who plays a relationship expert in the film, said that she did not take any tips from her previous two marriages.

The 41-year-old agreed that marriage is ‘definitely a work in progress’.

“I didn’t really take anything from my personal marriages. But from experience, and even from doing this film, it makes me realize that marriage is definitely a work in progress … But if it’s something you really want and the love is there, you will put in the work in time,’ People magazine quoted her, as saying.

When asked if the absence of nuptials has made their relationship successful, Dupri said that he doesn’t give much importance to marriage.

“The altar is like a party for your marriage. That is how I look at it,” he said.

“I don’t think marriage itself even matters. I think people put too much importance on labels when it comes to marriage. Nothing changes when you go to the altar … If you’re with somebody, you’re with somebody,’ he said.

The 35-year-old also said that distance can really make a lot of difference to a relationship.

“You don’t like being away from a person you like being with all the time. That’s kind of hard,” he said. (ANI)
