Jonathan Scott and Jacinta Kuznetsov first met at a charity gala in 2015. They slowly started dating and tried to keep it under wraps, but fans took notice. “We didn’t announce it, but on social media, people saw Jacinta come into my life this last year,” Scott told People.
Now people are wondering if the two will be getting hitched anytime soon — especially since his twin brother, Drew, is getting married to Linda Phan in Italy in May. But he says he’s not quite ready yet and has multiple reasons why, including his previous divorce.
So what does he have to say about his relationship with Kuznetsov and marriage plans? Here are seven things to know about why he won’t be getting married anytime soon.
1. Jonathan Scott admits he’s feeling the pressure to get married
It’s no surprise that his brother’s engagement is putting some pressure on him. It’s not only coming from questions in interviews but his own brother and future sister-in-law!
“Drew and Linda[Phan] are giving me the look [to get married],” he told Hollywood Life. “Definitely in the future … It may be a little creepy if I throw a ring on it [now], but we are definitely a fantastic match. It’s really good to have somebody at the end of the day, that no matter what, they’ve got your back and they inspire you.”

4. He said that he rushed marriage before
His unsuccessful first marriage might be the reason why Scott wants to take his time before talking about marriage again. As he told People of his first marriage to ex Kelsy Ully: “We were young, and there was a rush going into it. She wanted to get married on 07/07/07, so it wasn’t something that naturally happened.”
But he is still able to look at the bright side of things. “I’m glad that we found that out early. You know, we didn’t have kids or anything. And it really helped me understand what I wanted in a relationship,” he explained.

5. He says he’s not interested in marriage right now
While his brother is preparing to walk down the aisle, Jonathan isn’t thinking about that just yet.
“Not right now,” he told Us Weekly. “My girlfriend and I have been dating for two years and just having a blast … It’s been great.”
