Actor Marlon Wayans may be a lover of love, but that’s about as far as it goes. The youngest of the famous Wayans clan has shared his feelings concerning marriage in the past, and he’s further elaborating on his stance. During one of his latest appearances, Wayans shared that his partner would be heartbroken if they could not handle his struggles with monogamy.
Marlon Wayans has been romantically linked to women like Salli Richardson Whitfield and Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas of TLC. In the past, the “Waterfalls” singer expressed that he was the “one that got away.” But his longest reported relationship has been with a woman named Angela Zachary, which was from 1994 to 2013. Marlon Wayans and Angela Zachary’s long-term relationship birthed two children. While many media outlets have often reported that the two were married, they never walked down the aisle or exchanged vows. However, although they split after many years of dating, it appears they have maintained a close relationship.
The Respect star gave a few reasons why he never saw marriage in the cards for his life. During a past interview with Essence, Marlon Wayans shared that his “mother needed him.” However, he also offered that some of what’s holding him back from marriage are the potential downfalls, such as divorce. In addition, he leaned more towards building “friendships because you just learn each other, and you just grow, and you just get better.”
Now with his recent appearance on Leah’s Lemonade Podcast, Marlon Wayans shares that traditional marriage would equate to being a “lie,” and he doesn’t want to be deemed a liar. In addition, the actor shared that he has no desire to “cheat on his wife,” especially after taking solemn vows in front of God. “I think that that may be a little bit unrealistic,” he said to the host.
