Djimon Hounsou Isn’t For Marriage “It Can Ruin The Union”

Dating & Relationships / Entertainment & Celebrities / September 3, 2013

Djimon Hounsou is finally giving a clue as to why he and Kimora Lee Simmons didn’t work out.  While doing press for his new movie, Baggage Claim, which is about a woman who is determined to get engaged before her youngest sister’s wedding and finds herself with 30 days to find Mr. Right, I guess the conversation prompted Hounsou to give his views on marriage.  This is what he told HipHollywood while promoting the film:

The idea of marrying somebody can actually ruin the union.  Some people are happily together for decades and they get this fantasy idea to get and get married when it’s just about papers basically.  Eventually it just goes sour.”

If you recall, Hounsou and Kimora Lee Simmons were together for 6 years and after their first year, they had a traditional commitment ceremony in his native country of Benin in 2007.  Maybe his views about marriage is the reason the two were never married in the US and ended their relationship of November 2012.  However, from the relationship, they do share a son, Kenzo Lee Hounsou, 4.

Do you agree with Djimon said?

Should all committed relationships end in marriage?

Can and should some people remain lifelong committed partners?

Sometimes (IMO) people think things will change, that their significant other will behave differently and neither happens. That may be what spoils things. But seriously, if you’re doing well together for 6-7 yrs plus, marriage shouldn’t change anything unless you commit with expectations.
