16 Celebrity Couples You Didn’t Realize Aren’t Married | Best Life

<p>For many couples, heading towards marriage is a goal. It's one way to make an already committed relationship legally binding, with all the perks that come with that… plus, <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/celebrity-couples-secret-weddings/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">having a wedding</a> is a sweet way to honor the love between them. But marriage isn't the be-all, end-all for every relationship, and there are a lot of celebrity couples you may not have realized aren't married, probably because it feels like they've <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/long-term-celebrity-couples/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">been together <em>forever</em></a>.</p>
<p>Many of our favorite Hollywood couples have been together for actual decades—so long that we'd assume they were married even though no rings were ever exchanged. Keep reading for some of the longest-lasting star relationships that haven't involved walking down the aisle. (At least not yet.) Never wanting to get married might be a dealbreaker for some, but these couples are happy with the way things are. And for stars who've already pledged that they're <em>never </em>doing it, here are <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/celebrities-never-getting-married/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">15 Celebrities Who Say They're Never Getting Married</a>.</p>

<p>Though <strong>Oprah Winfrey</strong> and <strong>Stedman Graham</strong> have been together for over 30 years, it wasn't until January 2020 that the talk show host explained why they didn't tie the knot after he popped the question in 1993: <a href="https://www.oprahmag.com/life/relationships-love/a30459068/oprah-and-stedman-not-married/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">She didn't want to give up the freedom</a> she had to put her work first.</p>
<p>"I realized I didn't actually want a marriage. I wanted to be asked," Winfrey wrote in an essay for her magazine,<em> O</em>. "I wanted to know he felt I was worthy of being his missus, but I didn't want the sacrifices, the compromises, the day-in-day-out commitment required to make a marriage work. My life with the show was my priority, and we both knew it."</p>

<p>"It's been almost 40 years since <strong>Kurt Russell</strong> and<strong> Goldie Hawn</strong> first fell in love, but they're not married—and at this point, it doesn't seem likely that that'll ever change. Why? In a 2015 appearance in the British talk show <em>Loose Women</em>, Hawn said she believes that she and Russell would be divorced by now if they had decided to get married, and much like Winfrey, <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doSP8t1EEW0" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">she likes her freedom</a>.</p>
<p>"If you have independence, if you have enough money and sense of independence and you like your independence, there's something psychological about not being married because it gives you the freedom to make decisions one way or the other," she explained. "For me, I chose to stay. Kurt chose to stay, and we like the choice."</p>

<p>After nearly a decade of dating, <strong>Eva Mendes</strong> and <strong>Ryan Gosling</strong> have two daughters together, Esmeralda and Amada. Though some fans might believe the couple got secretly married at some point since they first met in 2011, that's not the case—they've never been hitched. If that ever changes, though, we'd probably never even get to see Mendes' wedding dress, considering how <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/eva-mendes-defends-ryan-gosling/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">private they both are</a> about their relationship and personal lives.</p>

<p><strong>Shakira</strong> and professional soccer player <strong>Gerard Pique</strong> have been together since 2011, and they have two children, Milan and Sasha. And though Shakira did say in an interview with <em>Glamour</em> that if she ever got married, <a href="https://www.glamour.com/story/shakira-glam-belleza-latina-cover" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">it would be to him</a>, she didn't say that it's necessarily something they're planning on.</p>
<p>"We already have what's essential, you know?" she told the magazine in 2014. "We have a union, a love for each other, and a baby. I think that those aspects of our relationship are already established, and marriage is not going to change them."</p>

<p>"It means he's the father of my child, and I live with him, and we are a couple, and we are not going anywhere," she said.</p>

"For the last five years, I've been in another relationship. It's very boring and it's important to rectify because there's some fantasy about us all living in a big hut together."</p>

<p><strong>Evangeline Lilly</strong> and <strong>Norman Kali</strong>, who worked behind the scenes on her show <em>Lost</em>, have been together for over a decade, but as Lilly told <em>Ocean Drive</em> back in 2014, she doesn't believe in "forever promises," but <a href="https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2890404/Evangeline-Lily-no-plans-marry-long-term-partner-reveals-struggle-adopt.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">might be willing to get married</a> on paper sometime down the line if it makes sense for them.</p>
<p>"I have an American son and an American partner, so marriage might logistically make sense at one point," she told the magazine, via <em>The Daily Mail</em>. "My partner is a stay-at-home father, so if he wants to be on my health plan, or tax-wise, or maybe on paper we want to have our I's dotted and our T's crossed, but emotionally neither of us really feels the need for it."</p>

<p>"We are married in everything but the ceremony. We share everything and everything is in both names," he said. "We've lived together for 29 years—how are we not married except in the eyes of God? It's just irrelevant. Our 'marriage' has lasted longer than most marriages."</p>

It's also not a huge priority for us; we're so happy. I think it will be fun to do it when the baby's grown up a bit and he can be involved in the wedding."</p>
