Society’s definition of ‘well-settled’ is getting married and having children. But some famous personalities defied the norms when it comes to marriage, some of our celebrities are still single and they are happy too. Maybe life is not always about getting married and bringing children into this world, maybe happiness is staying true to oneself, only getting married because you found the one and you are ready to share your life with them, if not, being single is the best choice.
Here is a list of famous Indian personalities who are unmarried and happy singles forever
1. Ratan Tata
Ratan Tata about his marriage:
I had a happy childhood, but as my brother and I got older, we faced a fair bit of ragging and personal discomfort because of our parent’s divorce, which in those days wasn’t as common as it is today. And I fell in love once and I failed to marry her. And I came close to getting married four times and each time I backed off in fear or for one reason or another.
2. A.P..J Abdul Kalam
In his autobiography, “Wings of Fire”, he says that he was never ready for a relationship. For him, human relationships were more complicated than rocket science. When he was director of DRDO, his colleagues in order to comfort the lonely man invited him for dinner or other such gatherings to which he politely refused as he didn’t even want to be in a deep friendship. He writes that he wanted to remain alone so that his decisions regarding his job and his life are never biased.
3. Lata Mangeshkar
Lata ji when asked about marriage and children:
It’s important to first find happiness and a sense of fulfillment within yourself, or else the dream of being fulfilled only through marriage or children loses its significance.
Jayalalitha got close to getting married several times, but that didn’t happen.
5. Rahul Gandhi
Rahul Gandhi about his marriage:
Part of the problem is my parents had a really lovely marriage and they were completely in love with each other so my bar is very high.
When the right girl comes along. I will get married. I mean if she comes along, she comes along. It will be good.
6. Salman Khan
Salman Khan about marriage:
For me, I think marriage is a waste of money. I don’t believe in love at all. I don’t think there’s any reason for the word ‘love’ to exist. The word is ‘need’. It depends on whose need is more. Or who you might need at some point. But she may not need you at all.
Prabhas about his marriage:
I will definitely get married, but it’s not written in my destiny yet.
Prabhas mother Siva Kumari Garu about his son’s marriage:
Prabhas has a friend named Ravi, who once suffered a failed relationship. Prabhas was extremely concerned about Ravi, who now feels afraid of getting married.
Tabu about marriage and being single:
I do not think single is a bad word. There may have been a stigma attached to being single in the past, but not anymore. Your happiness comes from many things unconnected with the status of your relationship. On your own, you can deal with your aloneness, but with a wrong partner, what could follow would be worse than any kind of loneliness.
The queen of Tollywood remained single. Recently there was a rumor of her getting married to a businessman, but it was just a rumor. The queen is still single, and she never spoke about these things related to her marriage on public platforms.
Trisha about her marriage:
I will marry only if I get a guy who understands me completely. I don’t mind staying alone throughout my life if I don’t get one of that sort, and if I get one it will be purely a love marriage.
