The famous American singer and songwriter India Arie revealed how she turned down a man for marriage. 

The funny or not so funny thing is that Arie initially said yes to the marriage proposal. However, a week or so later, India said to her partner that she could not marry him.

Here’ the reason why she did what she did. 

India Arie Almost Married

The Grammy Award-winning singer began dating a man in 2010s, and the couple quickly fell in love. 

As per India, she loved that man as well. 

Unfortunately, Arie likes to keep the identity of her former partner a secret. 

Later, Arie’s boyfriend proposed to her and asked her to marry him.

Since India Arie loved her boyfriend and wanted marriage as well, she said yes. 

However, a week or so later, Arie called off the engagement after she confessed to her partner that she could not marry him. 

Arie also revealed the reason why she canceled her relationship with her to-be spouse. 

Why Arie Cancelled Wedding and Cancelled Engagement

India Arie, the “Little Things” singer, is a firm believer in her intuitions. 

India claims that there’s one intuition that she trusts; her tingling sensations.

Let’s learn what that actually is. 

While some people tend to get signs about their near future or present from their dreams, Arie gets it from tingling in her hand/arms.

According to Arie, after making a crucial decision, if she starts getting a tingling sensation in her right hand/arm, it’s a no.

If the tingling sensation happens to her right side and goes towards her right side of the head, it’s a “super yes.”

On the flip side, if she feels tingling on her left side, it’s a positive sign.

After India said yes to marriage when her boyfriend asked, she began feeling tingling sensations on her right arm.

Over the week, the tingling sensation turned into a rash, and that’s when India knew she could not marry her boyfriend. 

Like real adults, she talked with her husband-to-be that she loved very much and called off the engagement.
