Fans were shocked when the unlikely couple started dating, and more shocked when they wed after a whirlwind romance. But ever since they got together, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s relationship has only gotten stronger. And it could be due to a very strict rule they follow to keep their marriage going.
‘We don’t go more than two/three weeks without seeing each other,’ Chopra told Tatler. ‘That’s a rule. It’s too hard otherwise, and you’ve got to work on the relationship to prioritize it.’
Jonas and Chopra started talking in 2016 after he messaged her on Twitter saying, ‘I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet.’
But it wasn’t until the following year the two met IRL while attending an Oscars after-party. And apparently, they hit it off. A few months later they made their red carpet debut at the 2017 Met Gala. At the time, neither confirmed they were in a romantic relationship.
Chopra told Jimmy Kimmel, ‘We were both wearing Ralph Lauren and we decided to go together. It was fun.’
In June 2018, the couple took their relationship to the next level and met each other’s families. That same month, Jonas confirmed the romance by posting a video of Chopra dancing with the caption: ‘Her.’
A month later, Jonas popped the question and the two announced their engagement.
Jonas told Vogue, Chopra took ’45 seconds’ to respond to his proposal. And while she was quiet he told her, ‘I’m going to put this ring on your finger now unless you have any objections.’
Chopra and Jonas had two different wedding ceremonies, one Christian for Jonas and the other Hindu for Chopra.
‘I knew it was going to be three days, because Indian weddings do have pre-rituals,’ Chopra said. ‘And I knew that both of us wanted one wedding in each of our religions, so that was two days anyway. But it all happened so fast. We decided to prep this wedding in October, and we got married first of December.’
But the couple admitted they ‘weren’t prepared’ for the bill.
‘We saw videos, and then the bill. “And we were like, ‘Oh, cool, cool, cool. Maybe we should have prepared this a little bit more.’ So that’s why it was that glorious,’ Chopra admitted.
Since their wedding, the happy couple has been spending a lot of time together, they’re even working on a new project. The pair are planning to produce a new unscripted series about the sangeet, an Indian pre-wedding tradition.
And even with their busy schedules, they’d still like to have a family one day.
‘But having a family is very important to me and it always has been. It is something that I definitely want to do and I’m hoping that whenever God wills it, at the right, opportune time, it’ll happen,’ Chorpa told People.
