Rashida Jones has turned 40 but still she may never get married. Does she even need a husband to share her joys and sorrows of her life? Her father, Quincy Jones, and mother, Peggy Lipton, have been married since 1974.
Rashida Jones says she doesn't like the idea of monogamy
The 40-year-old actress is naturally beautiful, gorgeous, curvaceous and everything else a man would want in his woman. Yet, the most desired woman in Hollywood may never get married in her lifetime. What might be the reason for her choice to be single until now?
Recently, Rashida became a bridesmaid at her friend's wedding. Will we ever see the actress in her wedding dress?
When asked about her perspectives on marriage, she answered, “Things are changing so much. Especially this country, we have kind of failed with marriage. We're so protective of this really sacred but failed institution."
She further said,"There's got to be a new model. I don't know what it is, but maybe it's like 10 years with a lease to buy or rent to own.”
Are you joking, Rashida? Is it a marriage or renting a car you are talking about? Perhaps, it’s a lateral thinking she learned from Harvard.
Adding to it, she says she doesn’t believe in monogamy. Upon being asked about when she is going to marry, she gave a weird answer, “Maybe never? Marriage doesn't really buy you anything."
She explained, "I mean, Chris Messina, who is my co-star in this movie, is with my very close friend [producer Jennifer Todd]. They're not married, but they have two kids and they're wildly happy. It doesn't buy you anything. It just buys you a really big shitty pageant of a wedding to make other people happy.”
Come on, Rashida. People do not marry so that it would buy them anything. What more would be more precious than spending life with someone you love? At least marriage buys you that fate.
