Don’t hold your breath, because it’s not happening anytime soon.

Miley Cyrus isn’t in a rush to walk down the aisle with fiance Liam Hemsworth — but she is super in love.

In the September 2012 issue of Marie Claire (via AOL Music), the cover girl gushes, “Life is too short not to be with the person you want to be with. I don't really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we've made to each other.”

Along with her mega-hot Australian man, Miley is psyched on the engagement ring he presented to her on May 31. “We’d been kind of talking about [getting engaged], and I saw something like it online at one point and thought it was really pretty,” Miley says. “But I usually wear rose gold. I just love that it's old and has a story. And I'm happy, because it doesn't look like anything else I wear.”

Liam designed the unique 3.5-carat Neil Lane sparkler all by himself, selecting a 19th-century diamond as the centerpiece stone. “I had no input,” Miley reveals.

Instead of diving headlong into wedding planning craziness, the young A-listers are taking their time simply enjoying being together. “We want to have a long engagement,” she explains.

Too. Freaking. Cute.
