Anna Faris Isn’t So Sure What the Purpose Of Marriage Is After Two Divorces

Since her second and most recent divorce from actor Chris Pratt, Anna Faris needs some time to reflect on things. On a recent episode of Dax Shepard’s podcast “Armchair Expert“, the actress got real candid about the ending of her relationship and how she feels about marriage after her second divorce.

During the interview, Anna told the podcast-host that she has had the perfect example of what the ideal marriage should look like. Her parents had the best marriage ever. After two divorces, she isn’t so sure that kind of marriageis meant for her as well. “We had an unbelievable marriage and we have a great friendship now. And we love our son to death, and I’m really proud of that because I’m not sure I did that well the first time,” she said of Chris, with whom she shares a 5-year-old son named Jack.



“I believe in partnership, I believe in companionship. And I just don’t know if I believe in the ceremony of a wedding necessarily.”


Anna Faris, who stars in the CBS hit show Mom, is not against relationships and sharing your life with a partner. She just has to figure out if she still believes love needs being formalized by a ceremony.

“I believe in partnership, I believe in companionship. And I just don’t know if I believe in the ceremony of a wedding necessarily. I didn’t ever have that need for like, ‘This day is going to be about me,’ because I get a few of those days [as an actress],” she explained.


“For me, I’m just not quite sure where it fits.”


But Anna is still positive about her future. She just needs to figure out what the point of marriage actually is and what it means to her. She simply doesn’t want to get into another marriage, just to end up with a third divorce. Especially now that she has a son to think of and wants him to see that relationships can actually work. 

“I need to figure out what the purpose is. Like, is it safety for your children? Is it convention? Is it so other people respect your relationship more? For me, I’m just not quite sure where it fits, especially when it feels so easy, of course, to get married and then there’s the untangling in terms of the state being involved [in your decision to marry],” she explained


What are your thoughts on Anna Faris’ look on marriage and do you share her opinion?

    It s super refreshing that Faris is being so real about her marriage and the way social media has influenced people s perception of it. After all, we ve all been guilty of putting personal stock into her relationship with Pratt.

      Right! Divorce is never a fun thing to do, so it’s completely normal for someone to rethink the purpose of marriage…
      Thank you for your comment, Linda!
