Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis got engaged last Christmas, but if you’re wondering why you haven’t heard the sound of wedding bells, it’s because there aren’t any planned in the near future. That’s right: they’re another one of those “I’m in no hurry to get married” engaged couples. Why people who don’t feel like getting married don’t just… you know, not bother to get engaged or pretend marriage means anything to them is beyond me, but I suppose one has to keep up appearances.
From The AP:
AP: You are super busy. When in the world do you have time to plan a wedding?
Wilde: I’ll just tell them we are getting married in Uganda. That sounds too likely. That’s something I would do. I would totally do it!
AP: Do you guys have a date planned yet?
Wilde: No, I think being engaged is really fun and I am in no rush. I think it’s really wonderful, I feel really lucky and happy. We’re both really blessed to be very busy right now, so as actors, that’s the dream — to be too busy to get married. That’s fantastic.
Here’s my question: stars are always talking about how they’re “enjoying being engaged”. How in the hell is that any different from, you know, any other day in your life as a couple? Do engaged people have a magical world they fly off to that the rest of the world isn’t invited to? It just seems so bizarre.
That being said, I don’t mind these two, so I’ll cut them some slack. You don’t need to get married to validate your relationship, girl. Live your life and be happy, ring or no ring.
