Given how common divorces are in Hollywood, you can’t blame some star couples for not wanting to officially marry. We’re not talking about celebs who flit from fling to fling (we’re looking at you, Leonardo), but rather those who commit to long term relationships without a wedding ring. Some of the most enduring, stable relationships out there are between those who remain unmarried by choice, and having children doesn’t necessarily prompt them to tie the knot. Never say never, of course. This year we have seen long term lovebirds Brad and Angie finally formalize their union, and even confirmed bachelor George Clooney just said “I do”. However, here are 8 celebrity couples who seem to be content in love without marriage. Will they too take the plunge at some point? Your guess is as good as ours.
1.Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn
Sometimes love happens at first sight, and marriage follows shortly. Other times, love happens almost a decade after the first meeting, and marriage never enters the equation. This is the case with veteran actors Russell and Hawn. The duo fell in love in 1983, a good decade and a half after they first met on a film set. Their child, Wyatt, was born three years later. Since then, the couple has been raising Wyatt along with two children from Hawn’s previous marriage and one from Russell’s. As parents to four kids some might expect them to formally tie the knot, but that has never been a priority for them. They’ve lasted longer than most marriages, so it seems to work for them.
