London: ‘Dark Knight Rises’ star Christian Bale says he was determined not to get married but changed his mind soon after meeting his wife Sibi.

The 38-year-old actor said he didn`t hold the institution in high regard when he saw his loved ones getting divorced. Bale, however, changed his mind when he met make-up artist Sandra `Sibi` Blazic, who he went on to marry in 2000, reported Contactmusic.

"I never planned to marry. Everyone was divorced in my family so I didn`t have very healthy ideas about marriage. Then I met Sibi and suddenly it seemed a fantastic idea," Bale said.
The actor and Sibi have a seven-year-old daughter Emmeline and Bale feels that being a father is the best thing ever.

"Nothing can prepare you for fatherhood. It`s the best thing ever. I don`t want to leave my daughter`s side for one second," he added.
