Marques Houston: Single Mothers With Children Are A Red Flag For Me!!

Marques Houston is still trying to explain the age gap between him and his young wife and in a new interview, he claimed that he doesn’t date women his age because they come with too much baggage.

“A red flag to me [was] always with a woman that had a kid,” he told Page Six. “Nothing against single women, but single mothers with children are a red flag for me.”

He continued, “I tip my hat and respect women that are raising children on their own. But when I grew up, I never really wanted to have kids.”

The singer added, “I would talk to my dad a lot, and he would always tell me to have your own kids because you never know what the baby daddy’s are about. So if you’re gonna have kids, make sure it is with a woman that never had kids. So that was always my red flag… and a woman with an attitude. I don’t like women with funky attitudes.”

Marques previously claimed he did not star dating his wife until she was 17. Fans said the math isn’t mathing.

“Me and my wife’s situation is a little different, how we met through mutual friends and everything like that,” Houston said on TV One’s Uncensored. “When I met my wife, she was 17. We had no, really, conversation and no, really, connection until she was of age.”
