Jason Oppenheim is excited about the prospect of spending the rest of his life with his new partner, Marie-Lou Nurk.
Oppenheim, who is 45 years old, discussed the seriousness of his connection with the model who is located in Paris in an interview.
Even though the reality star of Selling Sunset has said in the past that he does not want to have children, he did discuss the possibility of one day being open to the concept of getting married.
“At this point in my life,” he adds, “I’m more open to the idea of becoming a spouse than I am a parent.” “I enjoy that there isn’t any pressure or even thinking of needing to have a kid with Lou. That gives me peace of mind. Therefore, it makes things simpler for us.”
When asked about the prospect of having children, Nurk, who is 25 years old, told PEOPLE, “I believe that I will be okay for the next ten years. Because it is such a significant amount of time, I am not even going to begin to think about it just now.”
The real estate broker has second thoughts about a number of different things, including marriage.
In the wake of his breakup with Chrishell Stause, his co-star on Selling Sunset, Oppenheim told ITV This Morning that he had “no thoughts of shooting another relationship — or being in one for that matter.” Stause was his ex-girlfriend.
Nevertheless, the president of the Oppenheim Group acknowledged to PEOPLE that Nurk had shot for the Netflix series “a couple of times,” despite the fact that she does not have a “want for notoriety.”
In addition to this, he said that Nurk and Stause had been brought together and that Stause is “very supportive” of his new connection.
“Chrishell and I are having a wonderful time together. We are both in love with one other and delighted for each other, “He gave an explanation. (In May, Stause made the details of her relationship with the Australian musician G Flip public.)
In response to the question of whether or not the introduction was uncomfortable, Oppenheim said, “They’re probably not going to hang around, but they’re fine.”
In December of 2021, after having made their relationship public for the previous five months, Oppenheim and Stause decided to part ways. Nevertheless, he said that Stause was the “love of his life” during an episode of Selling Sunset that had a reunion in May of 2022.
During an interview with PEOPLE, Oppenheim discussed his prior relationship and stated that “I can’t help but feel that I’ve let the relationship down. She was really forthright and honest about what it was that she was searching for, so I had no trouble understanding what it was that she wanted right away.”
He went on to say, “It was such an adult and truthful relationship, and I absolutely leaned into the concept of having a family for the first time in my life truly, like that seriously. It was the first time in my life that I took the prospect of having a family that seriously. But when it came down to it, I had to be honest with myself, and the truth was that I didn’t have the impression that I was there.”
The reality star said that he didn’t believe he would be ready for a relationship for at least another two or three years, so the fact that Nurk entered his life was a “complete surprise” to him.
Oppenheim was on holiday in Mykonos, Greece, with his brother Brett when he first made the acquaintance of the model who is based in Paris. He adds that he knew he “simply had to say hey” to her when he spotted her when he was having dinner with his buddy, the quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, Deshaun Watson.
“I loved that she hadn’t seen the show so that she didn’t really know who I was or about my connection with Chrishell,” he said of his instant attraction to Nurk, adding that this was another reason for his attraction to Chrishell.
The pair has no plans to slow down any time in the near future. During the next few months, they intend to visit one another in places ranging from Berlin to New York City. This will lead up to the months of November and December, during which, according to Jason, she will spend a month in Los Angeles to be with him before embarking on another trip that will last several weeks in Australia.
