Omarion Reveals The Real Reason He Doesn’t Subscribe To Marriage Or Monogamy

Although Omarion sees himself as a faithful companion who stays true to his word, those words will never be "I do."

Celebrity News

It's 2020 and shows like Married at First Sight, Love Is Blind and Ready to Love prove that marriage and courtship look nothing like it did for our parents. Celebrities like Willow Smith, Jidenna, and Amanda Seales have all gotten real about their views on marriage and monogamy alike, and after a recent interview on Sway in the Morning, R&B singer Omarion shared his thoughts on tying the knot and much like his famous peers, they are unconventional AF.

After his controversial split with the mother of his two children, Apryl Jones, Omarion has been the epitome of booked and unbothered, and although the singer still has hope that he'll meet someone special, he confirmed that we will never catch him down at the courthouse:

"I'm just unconventional and I don't subscribe to the marriage business concept. It's not really beneficial to a person like me, to work hard and then split half. You can have yours and I can have mine and we can create something together. I'm definitely for that. But marriage… I don't know."

According to Omarion, although he sees himself as a faithful companion who stays true to his word, those words will never be "I do." In the interview, Omarion shared that while he believes in the idea of monogamy, he doesn't believe it's right for him:

"I don't know that I've been motivated or inspired to feel like I can be with one woman. I don't know that one woman has rocked my world like that, where I feel like, oh yo. I'm definitely a faithful person, I stand by my words and what Imma say Imma do, but that's a tricky question. I believe in it, though. I believe in it, but I don't know that it's [for me]."

The Millennium Tour headliner also confirmed that while his DMs are open, it will take some time before he's able to commit to dating one woman exclusively.

"People ask me about dating. Can I really date? I don't know. I could develop a relationship with someone. I can build with someone, but that's gon' take time. So, why categorize it or put any expectation on it when we're both exploring?"

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.
