Nicola Roberts' divorce fears
Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts is refusing to marry as she is convinced it will end in divorce.
The 22-year-old singer - who has been dating businessman Carl Davies for almost 18 months - is in no hurry to tie the knot because she has seen many young people's marriages fail.
She said: "My mum and dad got married at about 18 but they are not together now, and I think I've really learned from that mistake. Not every couple who get married young end up divorced, but from my experience they do. When I get married, I want to really know myself and be really mature about the situation."
Nicola also dismissed rumours Carl is jealous of her fame, insisting he is a great boyfriend and she loves spending cosy nights in with him.
She said: "It's hard when they write this stuff, but it's not true. Things are really good between us.
"We've moved to Kent now and most of the time I'm not fussed about the London party scene. I would prefer to be on the couch watching TV! But if I'm in the mood, I love London and going out for dinner."
