The London Sessions singer married Kendu Isaacs — who is also her manager-  in 2003. And since then, they’ve agreed to this pact. Mary also talks about not having children, but being enjoying being a stepmother to Kendu’s three children from a previous relationship:

I was never sitting around think, ‘Oh God, I want a baby. No.’ And then these very special kids came along and it was like they were tailor made for me to be their stepmom.

She adds:

Being a single person and an artist, there’s a lot of selfishness that you don’t even know you have. Being a wife, it’s not all about me.

Do you agree with Mary and Kendu’s ‘no friends of the opposite sex’ rule?
