Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reconsidering getting married, despite earlier vows to never tie the knot.
The famous couple claims that they are feeling the pressure from their children to become husband and wife, despite previously insisting they would only exchange vows when same-sex marriage is legalized.
In a 2006 interview with Esquire magazine, Pitt famously declared: “Angie and I will consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able.”
But Pitt now admits they are warming up to the idea of marriage, thanks to much convincing from their six children.
He tells USA Weekend magazine, “The kids ask about marriage. It’s meaning more and more to them. So it’s something we’ve got to look at.”
Both stars have been married before; Pitt divorced Jennifer Aniston in 2005 after falling for Jolie while co-starring in action comedy Mr. and Mrs. Smith, while Jolie was previously wed to Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton.
I hope they do get married. It’s a nice gesture that they are doing by not getting married, as they are standing for equality, but they are my favourite Hollywood couple and I would love to read all the details of their big day. Either way, though, they shouldn’t be forced to get married. They should do what’s right for them as a couple.
