Goldie Hawn has shared the secret of her long relationship with Kurt Russell
The lovers initially crossed paths while filming the 1966 comedic movie, The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band. Hawn was 21 years old, while Russell was only 16 years old at the time. Hawn reminisced about meeting Russell, describing him as “charming” but “too young” for her to pursue a romantic relationship with. However, they decided to give love a trial and they started their relationship in 1983 after they had both separated from their first spouses.
Interestingly, Hawn and Russell never got married even though they have been together for a long time. In a recent interview with Variety, the lovebirds disclosed that they have always been bothered by questions about marriage. “We constantly got asked, ‘When are you going to get married? Why aren’t you married?'” Russell told the outlet. “And we were like, ‘Why does anybody care about that? We’d asked our kids if they cared about it. They didn’t. We didn’t.”
The 77-year-old also revealed in an interview with Now To Love that the secret of the 40 years of relationship is, ‘Don’t get married.’ “We have done just perfectly without marrying. I already feel devoted and isn’t that what marriage is supposed to do? So as long as my emotional state is in a state of devotion, honesty, caring, and loving, then we’re fine,” Hawn explained to the outlet. “We have raised our children brilliantly; they are beautiful people. We did a great job there, and we didn’t have to get married to do that. I like waking up every day and seeing that he is there and knowing that I have a choice, There is really no reason to marry.”
