Nicole Richie and Other Celebrities Who Delay Marriage

In April 2005, mega movie star Tom Cruise reportedly invited actress Katie Holmes to a four-hour-long private meeting at his home office, where they made an instant connection. A month later, Cruise was jumping on Oprah Winfrey's couch declaring to the world his love for Holmes. A month after that, the couple became engaged in Paris.

But instead of announcing their wedding date, Cruise and Holmes revealed in October 2005 that Holmes was expecting their child. Little Suri was born in April 2006. And exactly seven months later, the couple married in Italy.

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell

Another of Hollywood's golden couples, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been happily unmarried for 27 years.

Here's what Hawn told Woman's Day magazine last year about why they won't get married: "Because we have done just perfectly without marrying. I already feel devoted and isn't that what marriage is supposed to do? So as long as my emotional state is in a state of devotion, honesty, caring and loving, then we're fine."

Hawn, now 64, and Russell, 58, met in 1983 on the set of "Swing Shift." Twice divorced with two children, Hawn became a stepmother to Russell's son Boston with ex-wife Season Hubley. Hawn's children, Oliver Hudson and Kate Hudson, both of whom became actors, have said they consider Russell their father. Hawn and Russell also had a son, Wyatt Russell, in 1983.

Hawn has defended their decision not to get married. "We both have independent finances, we're both independently well-off. We have raised our children brilliantly; they are beautiful people. We did a great job there and we didn't have to get married to do that," she told Woman's Day.

"I like waking up every day and seeing that he is there and knowing that I have a choice," Hawn added. "There is really no reason to marry."
