Are Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Ready To Get Married?


In a new interview with USA Today, to promote his new film Tree of Life, Brad Pitt opens up about his family life and hints that he and pseudo-wife Angelina Jolie might be getting ready to be legally married very soon. Pitt explains that the couple’s 6 children are aware that mommy and daddy aren’t married and they are insistent that the couple get hitched. Because of that fact, Brad suggests that he and Ange might actually say their I Dos as a result.

Pitt is an unabashed family man. Fatherhood is, indeed, his most consuming project: raising an unruly brood of six children ages 2 to 9 — three of them adopted, three biological, born in five different countries — with partner Angelina Jolie. Their effect on Pitt has been, by his own account, profound. He credits parenthood, in great part, for his hard-won maturity. “Kids hold up a mirror to you,” he says in his first extensive interview since 2009. “You can’t make excuses. You’ve got to make sure they’ve brushed their teeth and eaten a good breakfast. You want to be present if they wake up with a bad dream” … Though he has said the couple would wait to wed until gay people could do so legally, he now acknowledges that the timetable may change. “The kids ask about marriage,” he says, sinking wearily into a sofa. He takes a sip of cappuccino. “It’s meaning more and more to them. So it’s something we’ve got to look at.”

The entire USA Today interview can be read HERE. In it, Brad goes on to talk about how the Brangelina family exists in nomadic fashion and he divulges more personal info about the kids but … it’s the marriage comments that are most interesting to me. I honestly never bought the whole “waiting til gay marriage is legal” rationale for Brangelina’s decision not to get married. But now that the kids are aware and are asking that the couple get married, I can see how they might actually do so … and soon. What do y’all think? Are Brangelina on the verge of matrimony? If so … do you think they’ll have a HUGE wedding or a quickie private affair?



    Not very romantic in my opinion.

      Chase, I’m guessing you don’t have kids. B/c once you’re a parent, romance goes out the window! ;) And the kids’ physical and emotional needs far outweight your own so you really don’t mind the loss of the romance so much. :)

    Personally, I feel they are already married. Common Law at least and they will just be adding a piece of paper and hardware to it. I do understand the children requesting it as they get older and begin to understand the world around them.

  • KP

    I would think they’d have something very personal & private, maybe just their kids and immediate families.

  • Jenny

    It’ll be a quick ceremony, I think. Probably somewhere foreign with a few close friends. And that’s fine. I enjoy that the kids are pushing this, rather than accepting the unique circumstances as normal. It would be nice for them to wait until we ALL can wed, but family comes before political statements.

    Wasn’t it them who were waiting until EVERYONE could get married before they would?

    • Dee

      I was thinking the same thing! A close friend of mine said she’d wasn’t getting married until gay people had that right too, but she got married anyway. Now Angelina may get married after taking a similar stance? It’s disappointing.

      Who knows though, maybe they will talk up their marriage (since they are like our Hollywood Royal family to some degree) and then remind us that they won’t marry until same-sex marriages are legal. One can dream, right?

    Just reread and saw I missed that :)

    until we ALL could get married…. with in the US? the world? the idea as far as I know was never quantified… and if its the world, they would likely, despite how unfortunately it is, never get married.

    I actually really liked that Brad said this. They’ve maintained the whole time that they were together that they would get married if the kids wanted them to. I remember reading it many times. Stayin’ true to that is great.
    Waiting until ‘everyone’ can legally be married is a great idea but I think they unfortunately would be waiting a lot longer.

  • Susan

    Hopefully they’d just do something small and intimate seeing as they have both been married before (her twice, him once). A wise professor of mine once said that in his experience going to weddings, overall the cost of the wedding was inversely proportional to the length of the marriage (with a few exceptions, of course). Maybe they’d luck out this time if they keep it like they live their lives – private and away from all of the media hooplah.

    i don’t think its a reason to get married just cause their kids are pushing it. i don’t “believe” in marriage so i don’t get why it is necessary for them to get married. if they do i agree with most, it should be a small ceremony with family/close friends.

  • @di from NYC

    I think its sweet because they would be getting married for the kids and the kids will be part of the wedding and in my opinion, I think they should do something small, not even friends, just the inner circle and make it all about the kids and let them help plan it and such, it would be sweet

    but no matter what the media would be make a massive deal and ruin it somehow and I am sure the media will also harass Aniston and plague her as well with BS; the media needs to let it go already

  • excess

    It will probably be just them, the kids, Brad’s parents and her brother.

    Although both of Angelina’s previous weddings have been just her and her groom, so what we think of as small will probably seem huge to her.

  • seriously, who gives a shit.
