Celia Imrie's Thoughts On Getting Married

Celia claimed her to be a marriage freak. She thinks that marriage to one person would cast her with boredom. However, in the same interview published by Dailymail in 2015, she said:

'If I got married, Mums,' I said, 'it would just be me and my husband in a house on our own, and what on earth would we talk about?

This is really something that would make every people roll down on a floor and give a loud laugh. 

From an early age, the lady was not interested in marriage and had a strong desire to live life on her terms. So, from a young age, she began eyeing becoming an actress.

However, Celia's decision not to get married resulted in her getting involved in lesbian rumors.

The actress is still unmarried. Celia has a difficult and conflicting concept about marriage, which makes her go against the idea of marriage. In an interview with Dailymail on 11th April 2011, she said:

“Whenever I might put the phone down I can imagine the irritatingly nosey 'other half' would ask me oh-so-casually: 'Who was that on the phone, darling?' And I know I would feel like replying: 'Mind your own business, darling”.

She added,

“Perhaps I would come in late after dinner with friends to 'Look at the time! Where on earth have you been?' My temptation would be to turn round and go out again, this time to a nightclub to dance till dawn. No. That world of cover-up and compromise is not for me.”

So, the lady is not married and enjoying her single life by going night out with her girlfriends and partners. Instead, she speaks mighty of her women and her singlehood and living it in full swing. 

She has mentioned her work to be her first love, so the lady, due to her high ambition doesn't want to share her love between the two and make one of them jealous of it.

Regardless her decision not to get married did not affect anything on her work.
