If you get to a certain age, especially after you hit 30, most women start to think about settling down. Many people will tell you that at that age, you must have your back up/reserve guy, in case the man you’re with disappoints you. The reserve guy is not necessarily someone you are dating or even sleeping with, he’s just someone that really likes you but instead of telling him you’re not available, you lead him on, keep him interested until your main man marries you. He’s like our ‘side man’
Anyway, rapper Eve sat down with Huffington Post live where she talked about the pressure to marry, having her reserve man and how she broke it the news of her engagement to him. Read after the cut…
On if she had a backup/reserve guy
“Yeah, I kind of did. I think every girl has a reserve. They are good friends
On how she broke to the news of her engagement to him
“I’m getting married, so sorry! (laughs). I think that person knows. I think the reserve always knows because obviously that person is the person that you are too busy for and then you’re like ..’Yeah, I’m alone tonight…let’s hang out!’. I think they know
On if she ever felt pressured to get married
“I didn’t. I didn’t pressure myself that way. It was more about having children actually. Like ‘Oh, I’m getting older’ and wanting to have kids in a marriage and not marriage specifically
On if she plans to have kids
“I hope so. We are happy in our newlywed bliss at the moment. We can’t wait but not rushing.
Eve began dating British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper in 2010. They became engaged on December 25, 2013 and got married in June 2014. Max has four kids from a previous marriage.
