The Barcelona defender met popstar Shakira after appearing in the music video for her single 'Waka Waka (Time For Africa)', which was the 2010 World Cup's official song.
During an appearance on Gary Neville's The Overlap, Pique discussed his relationship with Shakira and was ask why they're yet to tie the knot.
"No, I'm not married," the 35-year-old replied when asked. "It’s her mentality!
"I like it how we are right now. We have two kids, nine and seven, we work good as a couple. We don't have the need to be married, it's fine."
Neville then joked his former Manchester United teammate had already popped the question and been turned down which saw Pique reply: "No no no, I would tell you!"

During a chat with The Wild Project, Pique stated: "I'm happy that Espanyol has been promoted to the first division because that's how we play in their stadium. I like to go there, I get whistled at all the time.
"You laugh and the fans get even madder. There is nothing comparable in the world.
I would say it's better than sex. I enjoy it a lot more than playing against Real Madrid."
