The rapper is reportedly dating singer Cassie, but explains he won't marry until the time is right.
He tells "The View," "It definitely would be a dream come true for me to just one day be ready for that."
"I'm not really looking because I know the responsibility that comes with that and I think that a lot of people, they jump into that and they're not honest with themselves. I'm brutally honest with myself... I don't want to get married and not make that woman be the best... I've been close to it and when I'm ready I'll make the announcement, but when I do it, I'm doing it forever."
Combs also believes happiness, not marriage, is the most important element of a relationship.
He says, "I think a lot of people put too much on marriage and not enough on happiness."
"I'm happy, anybody that is in my life is happy... I just want to be happy and I think it's important for you to protect your happiness and to love yourself, because then you can love other people the right way."
