Angelina Jolie Says Children Are a Bigger Commitment Than Marriage

Which Is More of a Commitment: Children or Marriage?

Angelina Jolie has a lifelong commitment to Brad Pitt even if they never walk down the aisle. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the actress and mother of six — Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 4, Shiloh, 4, and Vivienne, and Knox, nearly 2 — made it clear that the big brood bonds the couple more than any marriage certificate ever could. She said:

"It’s just like we already are. Children are clearly a commitment, a bigger commitment [than marriage]. It’s for life."

Her proof may be in the divorce papers. The actress's relationship with Pitt has outlasted her previous (three-year) marriages to Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton. After five years together, Hollywood's hottest couple also surpasses the length of Pitt's marriage to Jennifer Aniston. None of the couple's previous relationships produced children, but their union has made for one big happy, chaotic family. Do you agree with Jolie's sentiments?
