Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are too cute for words — and that’s why we can’t wait to see them as husband and wife! But according to Seventeen’s October 2012 cover girl, marriage rumors are laughable.
“There are so many rumors! Every couple of months, I’ll get e-mails from my parents, after they’ve read an article in the tabloids, like, ‘Just checking in to make sure you’re not married … Did he propose?!?’ Even my friends send me Google Alerts. It’s hilarious. My parents married young, but I personally don’t think there’s any rush. Let’s say you get married tomorrow. You’ll be married, hopefully, for the rest of your life. So what is it going to change if you get married tomorrow or five years from now? Ten years from now?” Nina tells the October 2012 issue of Seventeen magazine on the persistent rumors that she’s married Ian.
She said, “The first time I was on the cover of Seventeen, the cover line said ‘Nina: Why she wouldn’t date any of her co-stars.’ And then cut to two years later…it’s funny that I said that, but you know what? It was honestly what I believed at the time. I didn’t want to be dating one of my costars — my goal on the show was to be professional. But sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long — which I did for a really, really long time.”
