Dolores Catania has changed her mind again about her marriage to David Principe
Fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey are constantly intrigued by Dolores Catania’s relationship with David Principe. Catania’s co-stars are also confused. But Catania maintains that their unconventional relationship works for her. Despite her back and forth between whether or not she wanted to take things to the next level with Principe, Catania says she would definitely marry him.
Dolores Catania previously said she didn’t want to marry David Principe
Catania and Principe have been seeing each other for four years. The two have never lived together and view their relationship as unconventional. In fact, for much of their relationship, Catania lived with her ex-husband and business partner, Frank. Frank also accompanies his ex to many of the social events seen on the show. Principe apparently doesn’t care about this arrangement.
Catania has boasted of having the best of both worlds: quality time with her boyfriend but nothing too serious where she has to give up her independence. During season 10 however, she admitted that she wanted more.

She and Frank helped build the Principe house and she was about to move in. But at the Season 10 reunion, she changed her mind, saying she couldn’t wait to get married and Principe missed the clues.
Throughout Season 11, her co-stars urged her not to settle down. They were shocked when Principe gave him a Porsche instead of a ring and felt it was a gift for him to continue to tie it up. But she says that’s not the case and their relationship is on her terms.
When a clairvoyant guessed that Principe was not the man for her, she replied during the RHONJ After the show:
There is nothing anyone can tell me in my life right now. I know how this play ends, I know what to expect, I’ve been around the neighborhood more than once. I have lived the lives of a few people, I have lived a lot and I am quite intuitive to what is going on… I was not sorry that David was not my soul mate. No shit!
‘RHONJ’ star says she would say yes to David Principe’s proposal
Despite her co-star’s suspicion that Principe is dragging its feet in her relationship with Catania, and even a psychic telling Catania that Principe isn’t that one, Catania has revealed that she doesn’t agree. The revelation came during the second part of the RHONJ Season 11 reunion when she confirmed the two were still in a relationship.
“I really feel like this guy loves me,” she told host Andy Cohen. “I don’t know if he really knows how to be in a relationship. I wish we had seen each other more. Catania says they only see each other once a week due to Principe’s busy schedule as a doctor.

Catania also said Principe was previously married and had two children she was close to. “So, is that why he doesn’t want to remarry?” Asked Andy. Catania replied: “It could be … I mean, he’s been married for 14 years.”
She admits that she will accept Principe’s marriage proposal if asked, but that would be under certain conditions. [marry him], but I wouldn’t go for it. I’d say, ‘Alright, Dave, we’ll get married, but let’s start living a life. I want a full weekend a month. Let’s go somewhere. I want my name on this house. If I want to be your wife, now there are things that I will demand. I had a lot of time to think [in four-and-a-half years]. “
