London (ANI): Actress Jessica Alba has confessed she never wanted to walk down the aisle. The Good Luck Chuck star revealed she gave her husband Cash Warren a hard time when he tried talking her into it. "I had a hard time agreeing with marriage at all because I feel like its been warped," the Daily Star quoted her as telling Cosmopolitan magazine.“Originally, it was two families coming together to make a stronger family. It was about survival - not love or soul mates. And now the way they market marriage - even as a kid through Disney movies - is that it''s all about Prince Charming sweeping you off your feet.
“There's this mentality that you need the big dress and the big day - the day every girl gets to be a princess. I didn't agree with any of that. This tradition of obeying your husband like he's your king? It's a load of c**p. Love and honour, yes. But you should love and honour yourself too, and all your friends. “I chose to get married because, essentially, you're given a deck of cards in life. The hand you were dealt with is your family and you can''t choose them," she added.
