We’ve been diehard Gwen Stefani fans since the her No Doubt days, and that includes all the romantic ups and downs in her personal life. First, people thought that the 50-year-old and her country singer BF Blake Shelton eloped, but it turns out there’s more than one reason Gwen hasn’t wed yet.
Apparently, quarantine has prevented the nuptials because Gwen Stefani’s biggest dealbreaker is not being able to have her wedding at a church, as she is an avid Roman Catholic. Additionally, Gwen has not yet had her marriage with Gavin officially annulled, which a source says “could take years for the church tribunal to issue the decision.” Religion is now an important shared factor in Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s relationship that bonds the two of them even closer.
Since the two started dating, he rediscovered his own faith. She convinced him to go to church on a more regular basis, and reawakened something in him that made him “ believe in God now more than I ever have in my life” as he told Tennessean newspaper. In the same interview, he talks about the bizarre coincidences that led him and Gwen to meet, and eventually, fall in love. He claims that the experience of meeting this woman of his dreams didn’t make any sense without a higher being, but made all the sense with one.
Little did we know, but there’s another reason besides religion which could be a roadblock to the couple’s future. According to Stefani, the pandemic has made these lovebirds think more carefully about their relationship. Everyone is obsessing over the date and the details, but what’s really important to Gwen and Blake is the current issues that have the world in turmoil. In her own words according to a source, she doesn’t want to “rock the boat” with further marriage details.
