LONDON, Dec. 1 (UPI) -- Zayn Malik, from British boy band One Direction, is reportedly pushing his nuptials with singer Perrie Edwards because of the couple's busy schedules.
According to The Mirror, the 21-year-old singer had planned to wed Edwards, who sings for band Little Max, in 2014, but sources close to the couple say they've had to "put us back" because "there isn't the time to plan a day that will be perfect for the two of them."
"They're both so busy, they have decided they will have to have a long engagement," added the insider. "Who knows when the wedding will be now, but there are no plans at the moment."
The reports come a week after a source told British publication Sunday People, Malik was "fed up with the whole fame thing" and simply wanted to marry Edwards and start a family.
"He loves singing and his fans but he just wants a quiet life now," added the insider. "He has become increasingly disappointed with the little amount of time he can spend with Perrie. Unfortunately she is in a band too, they have so little time together."
Edwards and Malik have been engaged since August 2013, but insiders say "finding time together can be difficult" because "their commitments clash so much."
"Zayn and Perrie are trying to spend as much time together as possible," added the source.
