‘i Never Married Because I Knew My Mom Needed Me’: Marlon Wayans Reveals He’s 47 & Never Been Married – Video

During the interview, Wayans revealed his focus was on love when taking on the role of Aretha’s rude first husband, Ted White. While the actor understood the nature of Aretha and Ted’s relationship and how people would view his character he mostly cared about expressing the love that White felt for Franklin, even if it was fueled by insecurity. Later in the interview, Marlon Wayans began discussing his own relationships and how his bond with his mother has stopped him from ever getting married.

The single father of two confessed to the outlet that he never took marriage seriously, instead opting to be there for his mother and avoid any competition between her and his would-be wife. “Women sometimes want to battle for your attention. They want to battle for your love” the actor stated. At 49, Marlon admits that he may be able to try his hand at marriage now but he’s only giving it one sh-ot. “I like things to bend and not rest, and I feel like when you get married, you have to get disunited in order to either be separated or together.”

Marlon Wayans recalls telling his mother on her deathbed 2 years ago about his silent pact with himself to put her first. He told her “I’m 47 years old and I’ve never been married because I always wanted you to be my number one girl.” With her passing, and his role as Ted White giving him fresh perspective, Marlon Wayans is looking at love and marriage through new eyes and prepping to take the leap when the time comes. While he puts no time frame on himself he does say “You know what I need? I need peace. You know what you need? Peace. Love is a vacation.”

This is how people reacted to this post:

CelestePernell Moore I have to agree with, people got mama’s boy twisted. A mama’s boy is a man with no backbone, not a man that values his mother and women. When a man finds that woman he should put her first, and his mother should allow it, gracefully.

Dee LedbetterI feel for him, but he still could of gotten married, as long as his wife was willing to help him out. He should never give up, there’s someone waiting somewhere that will be perfect for him May he be Blessed for caring so much about his mom.

Rory Ariel I don’t judge him but I don’t agree with his choices. Once your child is grown they should be able to enjoy and experience their own life
