Marques Houston is 41 years old and his wife Miya Dickey is 22.
The singer spoke about their relationship in a new interview with Page Six and explained why he didn’t want to date a woman with a child.
“A red flag to me [was] always with a woman that had a kid,” said Houston. “Nothing against single women, but single mothers with children are a red flag for me … I tip my hat and respect women that are raising children on their own. But when I grew up, I never really wanted to have kids.”
“I would talk to my dad a lot, and he would always tell me to have your own kids because you never know what the baby daddy‘s are about,” he added. “So if you’re gonna have kids, make sure it is with a woman that never had kids. So that was always my red flag… and a woman with an attitude. I don’t like women with funky attitudes.”
Houston followed that up by explaining why he opted for a woman that’s much younger than him.
“I could’ve married a 44-year-old woman, and it could’ve been disastrous,” he stated. “Women that are my age, they kind of have a different outlook on life. Like a lot of women my age are very independent. They are very like, ‘I don’t need a man to do this for me ’cause I can do it for myself.’ I come from a generation that I love to provide for my wife.”
