When Halle Berry said a few years ago that she wasn’t going to get married again, we understood why. She’d just come out of a second divorce to womanizer Eric Benet, and hey, who’d want to walk down the aisle again after being burnt so bad (and publicly)? But we kind of assumed that in the last couple years, since hooking up with so-good-looking-I’m-going-to-pass-out Gabriel Aubry and giving birth to their gorgeous daughter Nahla, she may have changed her mind. Not a bit.
“I’m much clearer about what a relationship is, which is why I will never marry again. Gabriel and I have a great partnership and a lovely daughter. But I once was stupid enough to say, in a previous relationship, “I’m going to be with this person forever,” and realized, as I grew, that I don’t know if forever is possible. Gabriel and I don’t look at our relationship in terms of forever, we look at it as right here today. And today means being the best people we can be, the best parents we can be. It’s wonderful, but neither one of us feels the need to attach ourselves to each other for life — because it may not be that,” she says.
Maybe we’re hard-bitten cynics, but Halle’s comments are a refreshing change from the usual proclamations of undying love from celebrity couples who’ve known each other for five minutes. And wouldn’t it be great if they lasted the distance? [Photo: Splash News Online]
