Kate on Life, Love and Marriage

Kate Hudson looks extremely happy on the cover of the September issue of Harper's Bazaar. Lately she's been making out with Dax Shepherd and of course spending time with her main man, her son Ryder. In the article, Kate talks about men, marriage and being a single mom in the dating scene. Here are highlights:

On dating post-kids:
“Dating becomes very different. You realize after you have had children that you’ll never love anything more than your child. That is your love. That is your life. So it makes the new sort of single-mom dating process very different. It’s like growing up. It’s adult.”

On if she'll ever remarry:
“I don’t know. I checked that off my list of to-dos. And I can check off divorce...The idea of marriage, I realize now, no longer holds the answer to anything.”

It sounds like Kate has grown up a lot from the groupie we fell in love with in Almost Famous and it sounds like Ryder has a strong independent mom who is always looking out for him. As for Kate, she seems to be doing just fine getting dates even as a single mom.

Spin control! Nothing like having a cheater explain monogamy. Sounds like she is trying to make herself seem less skanky for having broken up her own family and sleeping her way through different cast members. I don't see why people cut her so much slack. Just because she plays "cute" roles doesn't mean she is so sweet or nice as a human.

I like Kate alot but I did not like her comments about monogamy.I ended my first marriage because my first husband couldn't stat faithful.I think if you commit to someone you should be with only them.

That's the way the rockers are? They can't be monogamous, right? Haha. You know, in the end there's only two individuals who make the commitment to each other. If one cannot respect the other, the relationship is doomed. If you fail to see that, it's your shame. And I mean if you're aware of things that might happen or have happened. And you know what else, blah blah. I think she's smart. She was is love and you that's when you forgive a lot of things more than usual. It's your own business. I wouldn't be happy or comfortable being unsure. And on being a single mom I agree. And word to all the cheaters: you = scum

When she cheats on her husband --its okay and ppl instantly forgive her. But when someone like brad pitt is accused of cheating on Aniston--it makes him and Jolie the worst ppl ever.

I like Kate. What I don't like is the concept that marriage somehow validates a relationship. Being married doesn't mean shizz -- except that it DOES if you're gay and can't get the benefits that come with it, like the right to see your partner in the hospital or to keep your own kids if your partner dies. That's crap.

I don't think she is saying it's ok to cheat. I think she's saying that she knows it could happen and that she's not going to have a bird about it because can't change it. Of course you want your partner, and yourself, to be momogamous but in the real world, cheating happens more often than we would like. I read somewhere that she knew Chris was fooling around on her while he was on tour. I don't think she particularly liked it, who would since we are innately jealous & possessive as humans but she married a down right rocker. It is the lifestyle of many many rockers. It's a risk you take when you marry or date someone in that profession. That aside, she sounds so mature and the way she speaks of her son, you can tell she is so in love with him and her priorities are on straight.

I agree with previous posts that marriage is not something to check off your to-do list. I'm glad she thinks she has it all figured out now, but for me, getting married isn't an ANSWER to something. I can't believe someone would actually think that. I am in a wonderful relationship, getting married next year, but I'm not going into it with my eyes closed. As great as things are, I know all marriages hit bumpy spots, and I don't think having an MRS in front of my name is a solution to anything. It's a declaration of love and commitment...for better and for worse. That said, her views on dating as a single mom do seem to be level-headed.

I love Kate but I too was also upset with her comments in reference to monogomy. If men do not want to be monogomous then they should NOT be in a relationship, the last thing we need is women encouraging them to cheat. Not a good look but then again she cheated on her hubby also so I guess thats just how she chooses to live her life.

I just think that's a dumb thing to say. Don't ever expect or accept second best, when you can get the best.

Okay - so I'm a HUGE Kate Hudson fan, but I'm going to have to agree with rubialala here. I was sad to read her statements about marriage and divorce. Marriage is very serious, and although she went through something very hard, I was a little surprised that she talked about something so serious as something flighty, and very nonchalantly. Checking it off her list and all. I think deep down she's still hurt and healing from this situation, which is completely normal. This is where she is right now... we all grow from our experiences and she's growing now. But - just to say this - she looks absolutely gorgeous here. I'm positive I'll buy this mag just to put her beautiful face on my coffee table at home :)
