Miley Cyrus Says She Isn’t Marrying Liam Hemsworth Anytime Soon

By  | 

Just because Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are engaged doesn’t mean they’re gonna tie the knot anytime soon.

In a chat with The Sun, Miley shocked us by revealing that, despite the endless rumors, she and Liam aren’t planning a wedding at all these days, telling the paper, “I don’t envision marriage. I’m 24. I hope I get to live a bit more. I have too much living to do.”

Okay, let’s discuss this for a second. First of all, just because you’re married doesn’t mean you can’t live, but we’ll take that statement with a grain of salt and assume Miley didn’t mean to suggest married couples stop “living.” Second of all, Miley didn’t specifically say that she doesn’t want to marry Liam; she just doesn’t want to be married right now because she’s too young. It seems marriage to Liam isn’t off the table; it’s just taking a backseat for now.

All that being said, this is still very surprising to hear. Miley is currently wearing the engagement ring that Liam gave her the first time they got engaged back in 2012. The couple announced they were engaged again in October of 2016. Call us crazy, but if a couple gets engaged a SECOND TIME, it’s usually safe to assume a wedding is happening not far off in the near future, right?! (Then again, when has Miley EVER been the predictable type?)

Miley also told The Sun that after the first breakup, she didn’t think she and Liam would ever get back together, admitting, “Three years ago, if you’d asked me if I’d be here, this happy with this man, I’d have been stunned… I have no idea what the next three years will bring, but if it’s possible to be even happier, I’ll take it.”

While she didn’t see the romantic reconciliation coming, Miley revealed she did keep in contact with Liam privately over the years, and in her heart she never felt like it was really over. She even felt that their breakup actually made their bond stronger. “It’s good for people to have space to grow individually,” she explained. “Otherwise, when you’re with someone from 16 until 24, you grow into the same person. We got to become individuals. I hope everything stays the same.”

Kudos to Miley and Liam for finding their version of happiness and not feeling pressured to tie the knot!
