Kelly Clarkson admitted she never wanted to walk down the aisle to Brandon Blackstock despite saying “I do.”

“No. I never wanted to get married in the first place,” she told People in an interview published Wednesday.

,[Brandon] I had kids, a religious background, and I think that was important to him. But I have never been that kind of person.”

The “Since You’ve Been Gone” singer — who filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020 — further added that she’s not one to push for marriage after seeing several broken relationships throughout her life.

“Because there have been a few divorces in my family, I don’t like to put any pressure on it. It can be possible; It doesn’t have to be that way,” she continued.

“For my kids, I would definitely never think about it until they move out of my house.”

Clarkson, 41, and Blackstock, 47, were married for nearly seven years before it ended.

The former couple’s breakup resulted in the Grammy winner reportedly receiving full custody of their 9-year-old daughter River Rose and 7-year-old son Remington “Remy” Alexander – with Blackstock receiving the children for one weekend per month.

Brandon also has daughters Savannah Blackstock, 21, and Seth Blackstock, 17, with ex-wife Melissa Ashworth.

“Dating sucks. It’s very strange,” she said. “I was single until I was 30, and I forgot how good I was really at it.”

But if the “Because of You” singer has learned anything from her past relationships, it’s learning what she wants in a potential partner.

“I told a friend [that my future partner] He has to be a person who brings his life to the table without asking me for anything,” she added.

“It’s much more romantic to say, ‘I want you, but I don’t need you for anything.’ “I’m really good right now, having a good time.”

This isn’t the first time Clarkson has spoken openly about embracing the single life.

In fact, the “Stronger” hitmaker revealed in September that she doesn’t have a boyfriend and is “not looking.”

“I have two kids, two dogs, three rabbits, a hamster, multiple jobs — a lot going on,” she said on Instagram Live. “And, you know, you think you’re going to spend the rest of your life with someone, and you don’t. It’s hard to start again.”

She also joked during a segment on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” in December 2021 that she would “always be single.”
