22 Celebrities Who Have Vowed To Never Get Married
It looks like the third time was the charm for Idris Elba, who had been married two times before he promised never to do it again. The actor was married to Kim Elba for five years between 1998 and 2003, then married Sonia Nicole Hamlin three years later, but the marriage lasted less than a year.
“Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so,” Idris said during an interview with Essence. “Yeah, I don’t think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody. It’s not my life’s calling.”
But the tides turned in the first half of 2019 when he married Sabrina Dhowre in Marrakesh, Morocco. “It wasn’t something that I wanted to do, get married again. But… Sabrina has deepened friendships with people I’ve known longer than [her], nurturing the best side of me to make me connect to my friends more,” he told British Vogue.
