They’ve been together longer than many wedded celebrity couples, yet they themselves aren’t married.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples, and while they remain fully committed to each other, the chances of them walking down the aisle are slim to none.
“Why should we be? Isn’t that a better question?” Hawn replied to CNN’s Chris Wallace when he asked why the two weren’t married.
Hawn, 77, recently appeared on Wallace’s show, Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?, where the two discussed her reluctance to marry Russell.
“When it doesn’t work out, it ends up to be big business,” Hawn explained.
The actress, whose two previous marriages ended in divorce, claimed the end of a marriage is “always ugly.”
“Somebody actually has to take a look and say, ‘How many divorces actually are fun? How many divorces actually don’t cost money? How many divorces actually make you hate the person more than you did before? How many divorces have hurt children?’ ”
One could argue, like Wallace, that Hawn and Russell wouldn’t get divorced as they have been together for 40 years, but no one knows for certain. Plus, Hawn likes the idea of waking up every morning and choosing to be in a relationship.
“I mean relationships are hard,” she added. “They’re not always easy. There’s all kinds of hurdles we go through. There’s things that we believe in, things we don’t believe in, we agree on.”
“So I think ultimately staying independent with independent thinking is important, so you can hold on to yourself, and you can actually have that feeling,”
