The Philippines’ “Pambansang Krung Krung” and former 2NE1 member Sandara Park says that she won’t get married for a somewhat controversial, and yet very relatable reason.
In a preview for next week’s episode for YouTube web show, “No Back Tak Jae-hoon,” Sandara Park was asked the question by actor, singer and entertainer Tak Jae-hoon, “Why aren’t you getting married?” to which she immediately replied saying, “I’m a non-maritalist.”

MC Tak Jae-hoon became intrigued after Park’s immediate answer and asked, “Why, do you hate men?” And Sandara Park answered honestly (and teasingly), “I’ve seen too many people who had failed (marriages) around me.”
Tak Jae-hoon laughed at Sandara Park’s reply, as he is a divorced man with 2 children from his ex-wife.
Fans of the K-Pop star reacted positively to Sandara Park’s point-of-view.
Ok so she stated again that she doesn't want to get married.
I just honestly think that it all boils down to what her father did to them 🥺 pic.twitter.com/gzMwqst1NM

I respect #SandaraPark and her position on marriage. It is her life, not the life of anyone she decides to spend time with. And if a partner respects her choice and still wants to be with her, we fans need to stop defining her happiness by our own idea of happy.

as someone who has made the same decision. I feel her. we grew up witnessing what it has done to the people around us. so no. no marriage.

I understand her. I came from a broken family so I have trust issues w/men. Eventhough I love my father, I'm extremely aware of how my mom and our family suffered because of him. Took me months of 1 on 1 sessions to finally decide to marry eventhough our child is 9 y/o already. https://t.co/Fgnksfgsti

Same thought. It’s her body, emotions, money, decisions. Her life. Yes, she’s a public figure but it is her private life- life that we are not part of. If she thinks that it is better for her overall being then, so be it. As long as it’s a mutual decision with her partner. https://t.co/NUVPEGhOQS

Her reasons are justifiable naman. And she's been saying this since 2013 pa.
It's her preference. It may or may not change in the near future.#SandaraPark #산다라박 #DARA #다라 https://t.co/5hOmHwORRb pic.twitter.com/RIDoxhX2C2

I have read enough reddit husband stories to say that Sandara Park not wanting to get married is very fucking valid and the right thing to do! A man can be the dream man and still do the most insane things! Let Dara live her life the way she wants!

Sandara Park’s stance on marriage is actually very relatable—everyone at some point must have thought that getting married is one of the best things that could happen to you. But, if marriage would be the cause for people to be in pain or to be broken, then it’s better to not be married at all.
One doesn’t need to be married in order to be happy—we can all be happy on our own or with the people that we choose. Let’s all respect the people that choose to not marry and their reasons.
