The singer, who recently wrote about his homosexuality in his autobiography, said, although he has been with his partner for three years, marriage is not on the agenda until same-sex marriages are made legal on the Caribbean island. ‘I am in a relationship right now but we aren’t talking about marriage yet. We’ve been together for three years but it’s still a nurturing process. That’s where my relationship is at,’ he told Attitude magazine. ‘Unfortunately, we don’t have the option of marriage in our country. We could go to Britain or Spain or Argentina and do something beautifully symbolic, but that’s not what I want. ‘I want to have the rights of anybody else in my home country. I don’t want to be a second-class citizen. I’d want to do it on the island where I was born and where I will die.’
Martin has two-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino and said in the interview he would teach his children to accept all types of relationships.
‘They will ask where their mom is, and I will say that not every family consists of a mom and a dad. Some families consist of two moms or two dads or one dad or a mom and that’s the beauty of modern families,’ he added.
