Enrique Iglesias Explains Why He Won't Marry Anna Kournikova

After dating for 11 years, the sexy singer reveals why he's not in any hurry to tie the knot

Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova have been dating for nearly 11 years, but the celebrity duo has no plans to marry anytime soon.

In the new issue of Parade magazine, the singer, 36, reveals why there are no wedding bells ringing for him and the tennis champ.

"I've never really thought marriage would make a difference," he says. "Maybe it's because I come from divorced parents, but I don't think you love someone more because of a piece of paper."

That doesn't mean Iglesias isn't blissfully settled down with Kournikova, 30. He even sees children in their future.

"Nowadays, it's not taboo to have kids and not be married," he explains. "What makes a difference is that you're a good parent, period."

Iglesias also explains why he referred to her as "my wife" at a concert in Russia last year, causing fans to speculate whether the two were secretly married.

"It was just meant to be sweet in the moment," he says. "I thought it'd be easier for the audience to understand than if I said 'my girl.'"

But Iglesias isn't the only one happy to be un-married in love.

"It isn't important to me," Kourniva told Women's Health in 2011 about marriage. "I'm in a happy relationship -- that's all that matters."
