Adele misses being married

The “Hello” singer has been talking a lot about marriage lately. In a Sirius XM interview with John Mayer, she was asked if she would ever get married again.

“Oh yes, you should get married,” she said, according to Entertainment Tonight. “Yes. I think, I think it is a really incredible thing, marriage and I know that some people probably think that I wouldn’t think that, you know, like I gave up on it. I think you should, I can’t really say why, but I’m definitely open to marriage again.”

“The feeling I had, in being married, was the safest feeling I’ve ever had in my life,” she continued. “Sadly, it didn’t work out. But, you know, I miss being married.”

Why did Adele get divorced?

Adele recently spoke to both American and British Vogue about what led to her divorce.

“The timeline the press have of my relationship, my marriage, is actually completely wrong,” she told British Vogue. “We got married when I was 30… and then I left. It just wasn’t… It just wasn’t right for me anymore. I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew. I wasn’t miserable miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first. But, yeah, nothing bad happened or anything like that.”

Ultimately, she thought it was important for her son, Angelo to see what real love looked like.

“I was just going through the motions and I wasn’t happy,” she told Vogue. “Neither of us did anything wrong. Neither of us hurt each other or anything like that. It was just: I want my son to see me really love, and be loved. It’s really important to me. I’ve been on my journey to find my true happiness ever since.”

One of the hardest parts of the split for the singer has been explaining it to her son.

“He has so many simple questions for me that I can’t answer because I don’t know the answer,” she told the American outlet. “Like, Why can’t we still live together? That’s just not what people do when they get divorced. But why not? I’m like, I don’t f*cking know. That’s not what society does. And: Why don’t you love my dad anymore? And I’d be like, I do love your dad. I’m just not in love. I can’t make that make sense to a nine-year-old.”

The singer’s new relationship

Adele and Paul went public with their relationship earlier this year. The two had traveled in the same circles for a while but the singer didn’t take him seriously until recently.

“He was always there, I just didn’t see him,” the singer told Vogue. “I was a bit drunk. I said: ‘Do you want to sign me? I’m an athlete now.’ He’s just so f*cking funny. He was dancing. All the other guys were just sitting around. He was just dancing away.”

The two have since made several public appearances together.
