Julianne Moore admits the only reason she got married was because of the children. She and husband Bart Freundlich got married in 2003 after their two kids, Caleb, 12, and Liv, 7, were born.
In an interview with the Scotsman the 49-year-old says, “For me the only reason to get married was my children. I had a therapist who said marriage is really a container for a family. Freud says you need love and work, and a family and a job give you a balance. One element can’t give you everything. You can have friends in movies and plays you make, but they’re not your family. And you can’t expect family to give you the stimulation work is going to provide, because that is not their responsibility.”
Moore also adds that finding time alone with her husband is a challenge.
She reveals, “Your relationship is never going to be what it was at the start – and the fact it’s not is something that we struggle with. My husband and I try to spend time alone, but it is hard because the kids go, ‘Why are you going out, you went out last night?’ So we try to make time for each other, and maybe take trips away together but we’re like everyone else in that respect.”
Wow! First she gets married for the children’s sake, then she can’t get rid of them when she wants to be alone with her husband. Seriously though, I can relate to the fact that I am never alone with my husband. It’s hard with two small kids. When was the last time you had a date night out with your spouse?
