Hilary Duff Says She Was 'Too Young' When She Got Married: 'I Don't Think We Were Mature Enough to Stick It Out'
“Looking back, do you think you were too young when you got married?”
That was the question audiences, and celebrity guest Hilary Duff, were asked on Friday’s episode of The Talk.
The Younger star, 29, didn’t hesitate in providing her response: “I do.”
“I was 22 when I got married. I’m now divorced, I have a 4-year-old — I wouldn’t change any of it for the world,” Duff admitted to the co-hosts.
Duff explained that in her early 20s, she had “so much so young” which made her “feel really ready to get married.” In August 2010, she married Mike Comrie — with whom she shares 4-year-old son Luca — but later divorced in February of this year.
“However, I don’t think we were mature enough to stick it out,” Duff revealed.
But although the actress thinks she was too young to get married at age 22, she is a believer that it does work for others who decide to get married at a younger age.
Co-host Sharon Osbourne also agreed, and suggested that every marriage is “case by case.”
“You can’t say blanket, ‘this is the way it should be,’ ” Osbourne said. “It’s on an individual basis. That’s the way it has to be.”
“I don’t feel the need to get married again. As much as I was ready and excited, you’re like, ‘Oh, next step. We get married.’ That is the traditional person that I’m talking about that’s inside of me or however I was raised,” said the mother of one. “I don’t feel the need. I got to have the experience and it was awesome. I guess if it mattered to someone else that much, I would consider it.”
