Even those of us only mildly interested in the lives of the rich and famous can't resist a squiz at celebrity wedding photos. But it doesn't sound like we'll be poring over Kylie Minogue's big day in the pages of a magazine any time soon.
The 44-year-old singer has been in a relationship with Spanish model Andres Velencoso since 2008 and while babies are most certainly on Minogue's brain, she says marriage is not.
“Having kids would be marvellous, but marriage? Marriage would be lower on my list,” she told the UK's Sunday Times.
Kylie explained that she doesn't like the idea of feeling locked-down.
"I need to know I can step outside this room, I won't, but I do need to know that mentally I have space and freedom. Others would want to know they had those strong foundations, but I'm just a different make-up I guess," she explained.
It's not the first time Kylie's had to defend her views on marriage. Back in June when US TV host Chelsea Handler asked her if she planned on marrying Velencoso, she replied "Probably not." She's also been quoted as saying she was "never that girl, dreaming of the dress and the wedding".
It's frustrating enough being asked by nosey relatives at family gatherings when you're planning to walk down the aisle. Imagine being quizzed on your marriage plans by journalists and having the whole world read your answers (when all you really want to do is promote your new album).
With marriage being the norm for couples who've clocked up a few years together, Kylie must be feeling the pressure to tie the knot. But is it really necessary?
Traditionalists might claim that having children before getting married is 'unfair'. But recent data says 35% of kids are born out of wedlock. And with one third of marriages ending in divorce, that's a lot of children growing up in non-nuclear families.
Do you think it's important for a couple to be married before they have children? Or is it an old-fashioned idea? Leave a comment below or tell us what you think on Facebook or Twitter.
