Liam Payne does not plan on marrying his girlfriend Cheryl Cole anytime soon. When he appeared on Dan Wootton’s podcast called Bizarre Life to promote his latest single “Strip That Down,” Liam opened up about his religious beliefs and how that affects his relationship with the mother of his first child, baby Bear Payne.

While there have been rumors that they are engaged, Liam revealed that he does not see marriage in his near future because he sees it as a “religious thing,” that does not define their love and commitment to one another.

“I see marriage as more of a religious thing and I’m not really a religious person, so I know it’s not really [in] the cards for me at the moment. So no not yet,” the One Direction guy said.

“We have a baby together. You know our love for each other can’t be more serious so it is what it is I guess,” he said. Liam has been busy promoting his new music but revealed that Cheryl understands and has been fully supporting him while she takes care of the baby.

“That’s how she is with it and Bear is beautiful. I love him and I miss him terribly. I can’t talk about him too much because it makes me sad because I miss him a lot. It’s hard being away from your newborn son.”

During another interview with Nick Grimshaw, the age difference between the couple was brought up and it was a bit awkward. The couple met on the X-Factor when Liam was still a teenager and Cheryl was 24 but Liam avoided the question and said, “We don’t like to talk about that.” Yikes.

Perhaps the age difference is what is keeping Liam from walking down the aisle. He is still young and has a while to go before he can think about marriage. Everyone feels different about the commitment, but what truly matters is that they support and love each other while taking care of their child.
