Sean 'Diddy' Combs' broken home past is the reason he can't bring himself to propose to long-time girlfriend Kim Porter.
The rapper-turned-designer insists Porter, who is pregnant with his twin girls, will be the woman he weds but he needs time to make sure marriage is right for him.
He says: "I don't want to make that pledge in front of God and not be able to see it all the way out. I didn't grow up around a married family, so it's taking me a bit longer.
"A lot of guys out there get married, and they still do their thing. I don't want to get married and fail."
