While their vows are adorable, other aspects of their courtship were slightly more questionable. This is mostly due to Pitt, who pretty much admits he doesn’t know if two people are meant to be “together forever.”
“Neither of us wants to be the spokesman for a happy marriage, for coupledom,” says Pitt. “I’ll tell you what I despise: this two-becomes-one thing where you lose your individuality. We don’t cage each other with this pressure of happily ever after. You figure it out as you go along. We feel it out, rather than setting policies and rules.”
He goes on to say, “Jen and I always made a pact; that we’ll see where this thing is going. I’m not sure it really is in our nature to be with someone for the rest of our lives, just because you made this pact, Pitt says. “You keep going as long as you keep growing. When that dies, we do. We still have that friendship; we still have a good laugh, which can go in and out depending on the dynamics and outside influences. It’s complicated, but that’s what keeps it interesting.”
