Shakira says shes not keen on the pressure of marriage!

SINGER Shakira says getting married is no longer high on her list of priorities.

The Hips Don’t Lie hitmaker — who has been engaged to beau Antonio De La Rua for over four years — says she sees marriage as a “contract” — which she doesn’t find romantic.

“Our relationship is very romantic and I want to be his eternal girlfriend,” she said.

“The idea of wearing a white dress is very romantic, but the real point of marriage is a contract and that is not romantic to me. I also didn’t want to be under constant pressure to name a day. Then, after the marriage, the only thing people want to know is when the divorce will be.

“I told him: ‘Let’s never get married.’ It makes everything so much easier. He is very much like me and he understood what I was saying and now we feel very free and happy.”

However, the 33-year-old star is keen to start a family.

“Do I have any plans for children? Little wolves? Yeah, of course,” she recently said. “I’d really like to have kids, but first I need to go on tour and release this new album – and then we can sit down and talk about it.”
