Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt's Kids Wonder Why They Aren't Married

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt's Kids Wonder Why They Aren't Married

They had to know this would happen one day, right? Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's large brood of six kids have brought up the topic of marriage—and they're curious why their parents haven't tied the knot with one another. 2 Ways Beyonce & Angelina Get Great Men to Stay (Sorry Jennifer!)

"They have asked, yeah, because people get married in the movies," says Jolie, 36, according to People. "Shrek and Fiona are married, you know?" 

How cute! If ogres can get married, then surely two of Hollywood's most attractive and successful parents can do it too! 

It's really no surprise though that Angelina and Brad aren't rushing to the chapel to become man and wife. The frequency of divorces among the rich and famous might have something to do with their hesitation (just look at George Clooney's reasoning to not get hitched), but more likely it's just the simple fact that they don't need a traditional marriage to feel committed to one another.

"We've explained to them that our commitment, when we decided to start a family, was the greatest commitment you could possibly have," Angelina says. "Once you have six children, you're committed." Angelina Jolie On Wedding Rumors & Brad Calling Her "A Nightmare"

We think she makes a great point. Too many couples rush into marriage without considering what an actual commitment looks like. We love that for Angie and Brad, their kids are their symbol of commitment. And even though their kids are young, ranging in age from three to 10, they want their parents to get married for the right reasons.

"I asked them if it was just because they wanted to have a big cake," Angie says. Hey, for some people, that's the best part of a wedding! Are Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Planning An Indian Wedding?
