The two have been happily together for 35 years, however they have still never gotten married. While other Hollywood couples rush to elope, these two lovebirds never felt the same need.
Hawn once commented “What is marriage going to do for us?” Despite not being married, the couple celebrates their love for one another in other, more genuine ways.
When Goldie and Kurt got back together to shoot Swing Shift, the two were faced with a challenge. They had amazing chemistry both on-screen and off. Swing Shift was not a blockbuster success and didn't earn back the amount spent on production.
However, their next film together in 1987, Overboard, was a hit. It made $27 million at the box office. That was the last movie they would be in together for the next 31 years.
A Reunion At Last
In 2018, everybody's favorite Hollywood couple were finally reunited on the big screen. While the two have been dating since 1983, they haven't appeared in a film together since they starred in Overboard together in 1987. In the 2018 Netflix film, "The Christmas Chronicles" Kurt stars as Mr. Santa Claus, and Goldie, his wife, Mrs. Santa Claus. Unfortunately, Goldie is only featured in the film in the way end and only for a short snippet. However, to play in a Christmas movie together was very special. Russell shared why the role is so special to him with People: “Santa is the centerpiece of Christmas, it is the one time of the year that we are all able to get together for a good, long period of time, and have all of the things that all families have.”
We are hoping that the couple will star in another film together soon because we loved seeing them reunite on screen together!
Staying Together without Wedding Vows
Many people find that wedding vows and marriage is what keeps them together. They feel insecure without having the marriage title around their relationship. Goldie and Kurt, however, have said that the fact that they never got married, is what has kept them going strong all these years.
In an interview Goldie gave with Vanity Fair, she explained that if they married long ago, they probably would have divorced by now. Goldie shared, "there's something psychological about not being married because it gives you the freedom to make decisions one way or the other. For me, I chose to stay. Kurt chose to stay, and we like the choice."
In order to form a relationship as strong and as happy as Kurt and Goldie's, it requires years of support and trust in one another.
The two are very encouraging of one another and urge each other to do what makes each of them happy. Which is why their new home has a quarter for both Kurt and Goldie separately, so that they can each have a space in their home that is just for them. For Kurt, that means hunting, and for Goldie, yoga and meditation. If we could all be so wealthy, we would make a quarter for every member of our families!
