LOSANGELES, CALIFRONIA: Even though they never got married, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn have a special relationship and are considered one of Hollywood's oldest couples. Russell recently said in an interview that they were "constantly" asked why they never tied the know. He said, "We constantly got asked, 'When are you going to get married? Why aren't you married?'"


Recalling the early days of their relationship in the '80s, Russell said, "And we were like, 'Why does anybody care about that?' We'd asked our kids if they cared about it. They didn't. We didn't," per Variety.

'You've just got to want to be together'

Hawn told PEOPLE in December 2020, "You've just got to want to be together, I don't think there's any way other than do it."


How did Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn meet 

Russell and Hawn got to know each other while working on the 1968 comedy 'The One and Only, Authentic, Original Family Band'. Hawn recalled Russell being "adorable" but "far too young" for her to date at the time when she was 21, and he was 16, as per reports.

They first began dating in 1983 and it has been 40 years since. Their secret to staying together: Not getting married. Hawn reportedly said, "We have done just perfectly without marrying. I already feel devoted, and isn't that what marriage is supposed to do? So as long as my emotional state is in a state of devotion, honesty, caring, and loving, then we're fine," as per Fox.


Hawn added, "We have raised our children brilliantly; they are beautiful people. We did a great job there, and we didn't have to get married to do that. I like waking up every day and seeing that he is there and knowing that I have a choice. There is really no reason to marry."

Russell got married to Season Hubley in 1979 and they divorced in 1983. They share a son, Boston Oliver Grant. Hawn married filmmaker Gus Trikonis in 1969, but the couple divorced in 1976, as per Mamamia.
