(exposay.com ) - Janet Jackson who has been dating record producer Jermaine Dupri for the last six years - revealed her two divorces have put her off another marriage.
Janet said: "For me, I don't need a piece of paper to validate what I have with Jermaine. Some people need that, but I don't. It's about a connection of spirituality and finding your soulmate and I think to share your own vows with one another is enough. Maybe I feel this way because I've been married twice, I don't know."
Jermaine agreed with his girlfriend, saying: "I don't think marriage itself even matters. I think people put too much importance on labels when it comes to marriage. Nothing changes when you go to the altar. If you're with somebody, you're with somebody."
Janet, who stars in 'Why Did I Get Married?', says the movie and her past has made her realize how much work goes into a happy marriage.
Speaking at the New York premiere of her new film, she said: "I didn't really take anything from my personal marriages. But from experience, and even from doing this film, it makes me realize that marriage is definitely a work in progress - but if it's something you really want and the love is there, you will put in the work in time."
Janet married James DeBarge in 1984, but had the marriage annulled in 1985. She married Rene Elizondo in 1991, and the pair divorced in 2000.
