Mariah Carey Reveals Why She & Nick Cannon Got Married After 6 Weeks of Dating

Mariah Carey is delving into her relationship, and subsequent divorce from Nick Cannon in her new memoir “The Meaning of Mariah Carey.”

“Honestly, I think Nick and I could have worked it out between the two of us, but egos and emotions got inflamed (which can translate into many billable lawyer hours, and ultimately it did),” she wrote (via People). “It was tough. We both wanted to make sure everything was cool for our family. We will always be family, and we make it work.”

“He was a good guy. He was faith-based. He was ambitious,” she said about getting together. “He had been in the entertainment industry for a long time, so he understood the madness. He paid attention to me.”

And she also revealed why they got married so quickly: their desire to have kids. They began dating in 2008 and married that same year, six weeks later. They filed for divorce in 2015.

“Our desire to have children became a force of nature and why we got married so quickly,” she wrote. They are parents to twins Moroccan and Monroe, 9.

She added that “the power dynamics between us felt even” and that Nick “felt safe.”
