Beyoncé: You Can't Rush a Man Into Marriage

Fresh from last week's hot rumor – swiftly shot down by their reps – that Beyoncé and Jay-Z were getting married at a luxury Caribbean resort – the Dreamgirls star hints in the January issue of InStyle that it might be just a matter of time.

"You can't rush a man into anything – whether it's a relationship, marriage or having children," the singer, 25, says. "When he's ready, he'll let you know."

As for herself, she says, "I was never one of those girls who dreamed of a big wedding. Maybe me and my man will go away to an island; maybe we'll go to a church. I have no idea."

Checking out a report that she and her rapper beau were to have a $3 million ceremony in Anguilla, she tells InStyle: "It looks like a nice wedding – and very expensive. Unfortunately it's not true."

She wants to get married, though, she says in Sunday's issue of Parade. "My parents have been married for 27 years, and they're still in love. That's a great example for me. I know it's possible."

The most important thing in a relationship? "It's wonderful to understand and want the same things, but the friendship is most important," she tells Parade. "You know someone loves you by the way he treats you and respects you. You know it by how you both feel when you're together."
