Hilary Duff has been married once already and she doesn’t feel the need to get married again, but that doesn’t mean she has pushed the idea aside completely.
The 29-year-old actress opened up about love and marriage on her Younger co-star Nico Tortorella‘s podcast The Love Bomb.
“It is a sacred thing, obviously,” Hilary said. “It’s something to be taken very seriously, and I was so happy to be married. I think that I was in a very successful marriage for a long time. I never want to have any negative… I mean, that’s hard to say: ‘no negative feelings.’ But we got together based on love, and we separated in a very loving way. I can’t imagine going through that process with anyone but him, and he continues to be my very good friend. That’s honestly speaking from my heart. So, I think we handled it very consciously and with a lot of love. But marriage is sacred and marriage is not for everyone. Marriage is work. Marriage is really hard. Everyone’s like, ‘Are you going to get married again?’ I’m like, ‘I don’t know!’”
“As much as I was ready and excited, you’re like, ‘Oh, next step: We get married.’ That’s kind of the traditional person I’m talking about that’s inside of me, or however I was raised. But I don’t feel the need,” Hilary added (via Us Weekly). “I got to have the experience and it was awesome. So, I guess if it mattered to someone else that much, I would consider it.”
