Date August 7, 2019

Last year, after numerous breakups and countless ups and downs in their relationship, Meg Ryan and rocker John Mellencamp announced their engagement.

The beloved actress shared the exciting news with the rest of the world by posting a cute doodle of her and Mellencamp with the most straightforward caption ever – “ENGAGED.”

However, after so much time, the pair still haven’t changed their status to “married.”

Meg explains why

In a new interview with InStyle, the You’ve Got Mail star talked about her year-long engagement to John Mellencamp. She noted that there is no need to rush by saying:

I am happy. Yes, I’m going to get married at some point. But for now, this engagement thing is a state of grace.

The 57-year-old also made a rare comment about her difficult divorce with fellow actor Denis Quaid to whom she was married from 1991 to 2001.

The Hollywood star revealed that her whole world had changed at that time and all of her hopes for the future disappeared:

I was divorced [from Dennis Quaid]. All of my expectations about everything had been blown up.

Not long ago, Quaid also shared a few words about the painful breakup with Ryan. He admitted that he felt like he ‘disappeared.’ But Dennis concluded that he learned a lot during that time as it was a great opportunity for growth.

We hope that Meg’s failed marriage to Quaid is not the real reason why she is postponing her wedding because she deserves to be happy.
