Shakira Engaged, but far from Married

Shakira and Antonio de la RuaThere are tons of people out there that will advise against an engagement that’s too short, but what about an engagement that’s too long? Call me crazy, but I think six and a half years should be plenty of time to get your nuptials in order.

If Columbian singer Shakira hadn’t recently mentioned she was “too busy” to plan her wedding, I wouldn’t even have known she was engaged! That’s probably partly because she’s not my favorite musician, and partly because she’s been fiancée to Antonio de la Rua since March of 2001.

Shakira claims that she and her hubby-to-be simply can’t find time to plan their big day because of her hectic work schedule. But what bride-to-be doesn’t feel the stress of planning a wedding, no matter how much time she has? Have they ever heard of eloping?

According to, Shakira says concerning her wedding, “I don’t have time, but we’re patient. We’ll get married eventually, or we won’t, but we’re together and that’s what matters. We love each other and we want to stay like that. Why fix something that’s not broken?”

I guess sometimes, for some people, it’s really not the wedding band that matters—it’s the engagement ring! I would personally pick being married over engaged any day, but hey—maybe that’s just me.

    I would think a marriage should be somewhat of a priority in life, at least it was for us. Work less, Shakira, life is too short! :)

    I think, the marriage is good thing in life.Everybody want to marry and this occasion has a few for us.
    When we marry, we should love each other.
