London, May 20 (PTI) Former One Direction star Liam Payne says marriage is currently not “on the cards” for him.

The 23-year-old singer, who welcomed his son Bear Grey Payne with girlfriend Cheryl, says he doesn’t think they’d tie the knot anytime soon because he sees the ceremony as a “religious thing”, reported Femalefirst.

“I see marriage as more of a religious thing and I’m not really a religious person, so I know it’s not really on the cards for me at the moment.

“So no not yet. We have a baby together — you know our love for each other can’t be more serious so it is what it is I guess,” Payne tells The Sun.

Payne, who is currently in America promoting the release of his debut solo single ‘Strip That Down’ adds, “Me and Cheryl, our relationship is amazing and I put that down to her support more than anything, she’s just so great.”
