Jessica Simpson doesn’t regret marrying Nick Lachey, femalefirst.co.uk reports.

The singer — who divorced Nick in 2005, after three years of marriage — is glad she was married, even though she hasn’t spoken to her former husband “in years.”

The 28-year-old singer also defended her decision to star in MTV reality show Newlyweds, insisting the show didn’t destroy her marriage.

She said: “The show made me understand what marriage is, what love is, what commitment is. In all honesty, I believe it did not affect our marriage. Because we enjoyed watching those episodes, and that will always be a time I cherish.”

Simpson — who was just 22 years old when she walked down the aisle — revealed she has been desperate to find a husband since she was a teenager.

She added to Vanity Fair magazine: “It was what we all wanted. Go to college, get married, and have babies. It was my way of thinking. At 16, every boyfriend I had I was going to marry.”
