Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been together for over 40 years, but they have never felt the need to get married. In a recent interview with CNN’s Chris Wallace, Hawn explained why they have chosen not to tie the knot.
When asked why they aren’t married, Hawn responded with a thought-provoking question: ‘Why should we get married? Isn’t that a better question?’ She went on to explain that both she and Russell had been previously married and experienced the difficulties and complications that come with divorce.
‘Because we had been married,’ Hawn said, ‘And because when it doesn’t work out, it ends up to be a big business. Somebody has to own something. It’s always ugly. Somebody has to actually take a look and say how many, how many divorces are fun? How many divorces actually don’t cost money? How many divorces make you even hate the person more than you did before? How many divorces have hurt children?’
Hawn’s words highlight the harsh realities of divorce and the toll it can take on individuals and families. She and Russell have chosen to prioritize their happiness and the well-being of their blended family.
Before her relationship with Russell, Hawn had been married twice before. Her marriages to Gus Trikonis and Bill Hudson both ended in divorce. Russell was also previously married to Season Hubley. Both Hawn and Russell have children from their previous marriages, and they have blended their families together.
For Hawn, the decision to not get married is about maintaining independence and individuality within the relationship. She values the freedom to make daily decisions about her own life and believes that staying independent with independent thinking is important.
‘Relationships are hard,’ Hawn acknowledged. ‘They’re not always easy. There’s all kinds of hurdles that we go through. There’s things that we believe in, things that we don’t believe in, things we agree on. So I think, you know, ultimately staying independent with independent thinking is important, so you can hold on to yourself.’
Despite not being married, Hawn and Russell have built a strong and lasting partnership. They have weathered the ups and downs of life together and have created a loving and supportive family. Their commitment to each other is evident in their actions and their dedication to their children and grandchildren.
While marriage may be the traditional path for many couples, Hawn and Russell have shown that love and commitment can thrive outside of the institution. Their story serves as a reminder that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to relationships and that what works for one couple may not work for another.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell’s love story is a testament to the power of love, trust, and mutual respect. They have chosen to define their relationship on their own terms, and their bond has only grown stronger over the years. Marriage may not be in the cards for them, but their love and commitment to each other are unwavering.
