Some couples dream of a beautiful wedding ceremony under a flower arch, a lush marshmallow dress and, of course, a stamp in their passport. Others are not so conservative: they refuse marriage, claiming that official papers only kill romance - and the number of such unions is only growing nowadays. It turns out that even among celebrity couples there are those who have chosen civil relations, contrary to traditional foundations: in our selection there are 5 strong alliances that do not want to legitimize their love.
Natalia Vodianova and Antoine Arnault
The couple have been together since 2011. For 8 years of relationship, Natalia and Antoine had two sons. The world famous model and businessman lives in Paris and brings up five children: three from Natalia's first marriage and two joint ones - Maxim and Roman. And the beloved do not even think about marriage yet.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
The actors' civil marriage has been going on for 35 years. Together they raised three children: Oliver and Kate Hudson from the second marriage of the actress (before the relationship with Kurt, Goldie was twice married) and a common son, Wyatt.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham
Rosie and Jason have been together for over eight years. Last year they became parents for the first time. Now the lovers are raising their son Jack and they no longer deny the official marriage, but they are in no hurry to legitimize their relationship (although the top model has long been wearing an engagement ring on the “same” finger).
Oprah Winfrey and Steadman Graham
The American TV presenter and businessman have been together for over 30 years. The long friendship of the couple eventually developed into a romantic relationship, which, at Oprah's request, the lovers never legalized.
Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias
The athlete and the singer have been together for seventeen years. Not so long ago, Anna gave birth to twins - the son of Nicholas and the daughter of Lucy. But even despite the replenishment, the beloved are not preparing for marriage yet.
