As a child growing up, it’s instilled on us that the path to take in life is to grow up, get a good education, a good job, and then get married and have kids. That’s all fine and well for those that believe that and want to follow that path in life. However, there are plenty that don’t agree with that and just go their own way. They might even become involved in a very long term relationship but never take the steps to make it an official marriage.

Today we will take a look at some very famous women who never got married

1. Charlize Theron

Charlize will be starring in the latest version of the “Fast and Furious” franchise this week, “Fast 8.” She has been in long term relationships before, but isn’t concerned with the actual marriage part. She told CNN, “I really want for myself a long-term relationship. I have been in long-term relationships…The actual ceremony is not important to me, but I see the importance for other people.”

2. Kristin Davis

Kristin Davis is commonly referred to as Charlotte York due to her long run on “Sex and the City.” Charlotte was obsessed with marriage, but in real life Kristin is not. She has an adopted daughter named Gemma Rose and once told Haute Living to her a “romantic relationship would be someone so awesome, I would bring him in and potentially share time with Gemma…I don’t know that I necessarily totally intended to [still be single], though I do remember being young and thinking, ‘Why are all these people getting married?’ But I’m an actress—I’ve never exactly been the status quo.”
