In this day and age, marriage isn’t the ideal end goal for many couples. Some are happy living in the same home, sharing their lives and even raising children without putting a ring on it.
Hounsou, who was technically never married to his son’s mother, Kimora Lee, shared his views on marriage during an interview for his upcoming film, “Baggage Claim.”
He said: “The idea of marrying somebody can actually ruin the union [...] Some people are happily together for decades and they get this fantasy idea to go and get married when it’s just about papers basically…eventually it just goes sour.”
A growing crop of folks agree with Djimon, choosing to pursue long-term relationships outside of holy matrimony.
Do you agree with Djimon? Does marriage sometimes ruin unions?
