Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell began dating in 1983 and have been together ever since. Hawn once opened up about the “little ceremony” she had with Kurt Russell.

Goldie Hawn has found the life of her life, Kurt Russell, but does not intend on marrying him. After being a couple for decades, the feeling is mutual with the former child star.

During an appearance on the now-defunct talk show, the “Oprah Winfrey Show” in 1991, actress Goldie Hawn teased marriage to Kurt Russell but at the same time revealed that wedding bells were not on the cards for them.

In the interview, TV host Oprah Winfrey mentioned that Hawn called Russell her husband, indirectly asking her whether they wed secretly.

Hawn admitted that she and the “Sky High” star did have an intimate ceremony but quickly clarified that it was not a wedding ceremony as such after the audience cheered her on:

“Well, we had a little ceremony, but it wasn’t a marriage ceremony. No, God, no. We’re far, far too together for that.”

The couple had been together for seven years at the time, and Russell bought a sparkling ring for his love (which she had on her wedding finger) to commemorate their time together.

Marriage Is Not on the Cards
Hawn revealed that she did refer to Russell as her husband instead of lover or boyfriend and explained they were still discussing what they should call each other, and ‘husband’ was befitting.

Winfrey noted that while many ask when people are getting married, having a piece of paper does not define a couple’s love for one another, and Hawn agreed:

“It won’t. It won’t. And Kurt and I both feel that way. If you leave the door open, you’ll never walk out of it, sometimes if you close the door and there is a sense of finality, that a lot of things happen to people.”

She explained that people often feel like their life stopped after tying the knot. “It is a piece of paper; it is a vow, but it is a vow that you take every day. You don’t stop taking it once. You take it every day,” she added.

Russell reiterated something similar in December 2020 during their interview with People. “The Fate of the Furious” star said, “For people like us, the marriage certificate wasn’t going to create anything that otherwise we wouldn’t have.”

Previous Marriages & Kids’ Marriages
The longtime lovers have previously been married to other people. Hawn was married to Gus Trikonis and Bill Hudson, with whom she shares Oliver Hudson and Kate Hudson. Russell has only been married once to Season Hubley, and they welcomed a son, Boston, in 1980.

Along with their blended family, the Hollywood couple welcomed their son Wyatt Russell in 1986. The two are grandparents to seven kids between their four children, and they are not pressured to get hitched to be happy.

Unlike them, their children got married, and according to Hawn, Wyatt and Oliver are happily married. On the other hand, her daughter Kate was once married, but her marriage fell apart. Hawn added that sometimes marriage does not work.

Sweet Birthday Post
While she said it is okay for a marriage to end, the starlet emphasized it is not so much about the institution of marriage but the people and the relationship, adding both parties need to be willing to stay together.

Hawn and Russell have been together since 1983 but never walked down the aisle. In celebration of his 70th birthday in March of 2021, the duo teased fans with a proposal on Instagram involving a throwback clip.
