There Was A Special Reason For Priscilla Presley Never To Remarry After Her Divorce From Elvis

Date December 25, 2018

Priscilla Presley and Elvis Presley married each other in 1967 at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas, and it was the first marriage for both of them.

They met eight years before, when Elvis was stationed in Germany with the army, and Priscilla was also there with her dad, who was the Air Force captain.

They got divorced in 1973, and it was the painful experience for both. Priscilla Presley decided not to get married again, and she revealed the real reason why she never became someone’s wife after the divorce.

She claimed marriage always means a big responsibility and obligation, and after some time partners start taking each other for granted. It changes people, and usually, they don’t cherish each other as much as at the beginning of romantic relations. That is why Priscilla decided she would always prefer the role of a girlfriend rather than a wife.

She said:

In marriage, you can easily take each other for granted. You begin to feel obligated. I see it happening to my friends - every one is divorced - and I saw it happen to me. It's a slow gradual change. Whatever it is that marriage does, it changes you. It may be the obligation; it may be the responsibility. People become less sensitive to each other's needs. They do something because they have to, not because they want to. So I would rather be the girlfriend than the wife
