Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have created such a solid relationship, they have never discussed marriage and never plan to make their union official.
Jolie insists the bond they have created, since they began dating in 2005, is stronger than marriage.
She also confesses they have been put off stepping down the aisle by their previous failed unions.
She says, "Brad and I have never discussed (marriage), but I would assume - because we both went down that road before - it's not the contract or the ceremony that makes you feel solid. We've gone the other way back round, and maybe there is something to that - maybe it's hard work and the exhaustion and the children that make you feel solid."
