Penelope Cruz and hubby Javier Bardem--whom she married in July 2010--welcomed their first child
in January 2011. Nevertheless, she told Britain's Psychologies
magazine in July 2009 that she was doubtful about the necessity of marriage. "I don't know if I believe in marriage," she said. "I believe in family, love and children."
Though Marisa Tomei told USA Today
that she's "been lucky in love" with boyfriend Logan Marshall-Green, she isn't in a hurry to tie the knot anytime soon. "I'm not that big a fan of marriage as an institution and I don't know why women need to have children to be seen as complete human beings," she said
in February 2009.
Ricky Gervais, who has lived with producer and novelist Jane Fallon since 1984, said he feels no need to make their union official because he doesn't believe in God. "I don't see the point. We are married for all intents and purposes, everything's shared, and actually our fake marriage has lasted longer than a real one...but there's no point in us having an actual ceremony before the eyes of God because there is no God," he said in February 2010
Actress Diane Kruger married French actor and director Guillaume Canet in September 2001. They divorced in 2006, and she began dating Joshua Jackson that same year, who remains her boyfriend. "Without sounding pessimistic, I learned that I don't believe in marriage," she told Glamour magazine in February 2011. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart. There's no paper that will make you stay."
