Hey Brangelina, Why Get Married When You’re Already Committed?
By Susan Trombetti, From Your Tango
I once met Brad not too long ago and was in awe. It wasn’t because he was Brad Pitt. It was because he was a humble man who was just plain kind. Like everyone else, I wish him and Angelina a lifetime of love and happiness following their recent nuptials. To them, though, it’s probably anti-climactic. Let’s not forget Brad’s interview years ago when he confessed his heart was yearning for a house full of kids. But he already had that … happiness, lots of kids, a woman he admired and adored, and the commitment he desired. So, what prompted him to finally get married?
When Brad and Angelina started living together, they believed a little piece of paper wasn’t needed to prove to the world they were happy and going to be together forever. However, many children and one serious health scare later, now the couple is married. They also stated publicly that they would not marry until everyone else in our country could also legally do so, throwing their mega-watt star power behind the national campaign for LGBT marriage rights. But now they’ve walked down the aisle anyway. So, what happened?
Well, Brad has stated in interviews that little people in their lives (a.k.a. their kids) were laying on the pressure and questioning their state of matrimony. Brad and Angelina decided to make their love legal and, impressively, even managed to keep it a secret for a few days. Though the couple initially believed that a piece of paper had no real value in regard to the strength of their love, it turns out that their kids feel that piece of paper means something more. To children, that piece of paper symbols a lifetime of commitment and security for them to have a married mom and dad. However naive and romantic that might seem to us adults.
So, are Brad and Angelina more committed now that they are married? I believe so, for the following reasons:
