There are a lot of couples of celebrities dating for a long time but marriage has not been in their to-do list. Here is the list we compiled about unmarried Hollywood couples including Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson, Stedman Graham and Oprah Winfrey, Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey and so on.
Joshua Jackson and long-term girlfriend Diane Kruger (who once wed to French actor and director Guillaume Canet) have been dating since 2006, they haven’t confirmed that they actually got married or had a plan of wedding. Even Diane Kruger shared, “I don’t believe in marriage. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart. There’s no paper that will make you stay.”

The two have been together since 2007 and have two kids but their to-do list has not included the term “marriage”. “I am for marriage, but ‘legal’ seems to be the word that doesn’t fit the picture when you are talking about love and commitment.” McConaughey said in 2010. “It doesn’t make me love her any less.” However, Matthew McConaughey, 41, wanted 29-year-old Camila Alves to feel secure in their relationship as soon as they realized it was serious so he made sure they bought a new home together. He told America’s Esquire magazine: “Before this, I had a super home in the Hollywood Hills.”

Stedman Graham and Oprah Winfrey have had relationship together since 1986. In fact, Stedman asked her to marry him once, and they even set a date, but she realized that marriage was not for her, and with her nontraditional lifestyle, she wouldn’t be sure to adapt the expectations of a traditional man, so she called it off in 1992; but in 2010, Winfrey told Barbara Walters she was “so glad I didn’t get married. And would have to say and he would agree. If Stedman and I got married we probably would be divorced.”

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn have been gone out together since 1983, they have never married. Hawn ever told their to-do list on Australian magazine Women’s Day in 2007 that they would never walk down the aisle, “because we have done just perfectly without marrying. I already feel devoted and isn’t that what marriage is supposed to do?”

Happiness means everything.” he has said. “All I see in marriage is a lot of desperately unhappy people.” About Tweed, when asked why she never demanded Simmons to marry her she said, “I never gave him an ultimatum because I don’t play games and I wouldn’t mean it.” “I’m not going to leave him if he’s not going to marry me.
