Susan Sarandon Discusses Marriage And Why She Will Never Do It Again

Susan Sarandon was only married once when she was very young. She admits that she never even wanted to get married in the first place. She only got married to avoid being kicked out of her Catholic University! Susan married Chris Sarandon when he was just 17 years old.

She admitted, “I was in college at 17. We kind of eventually dated. Eventually, my first sexual experience. I was so grateful. I decided to get married, and only because we would’ve gotten kicked out of school. So, we agreed that we would decide every year whether or not to renew. (I) never wanted to get married the first time.”

Even though it isn’t what Susan wants to do, she said she understands why people get married. “After a while in a relationship, if you get a bunch of kids and a bunch of real estate, and you’ve been together for 27 (years), you do (get married),” she said. “I mean, it’s hard not to take each other for granted…. [I] don’t know it just for me, I, I wasn’t interested in it. I don’t know why my parents were married.”
