Originally posted 10/09/2012 03:30PM

When it comes to taking on a role, Brad Pitt has a lot to consider, specifically his family.

In Interview's October/November issue, Pitt talks to Guy Ritchie about balancing his acting career with his love for producing films and his family.

"There are always creative issues, but those practical issues are also significant: who you're going to be with, where you're going to be together, how everyone's schedules line up, how long it's going to take you away from your family," says Ritchie.

"The whole family came and appeared to have a really wonderful time," says the source. "Both Brad and Angelina were very hands on and relaxed, helping the children to operate the rides and have a good time. They seem very much in love, too, and a really happy family."

Originally posted 04/13/2012 04:45PM

Congratulations are in order for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who confirmed their engagement to PEOPLE on Friday.

Citing lack of marriage equality and the commitment of parenting their six children, the two have celebrated their partnership in the press even as they (mostly) said they had no plans to walk down the aisle.

Here's a chronological look back at how they've addressed their feelings about marriage over the years:

Angelina Jolie & The Kids Visit Legoland

It took more than 1-degree weather to keep Angelina Jolie and three of her and Brad Pitt's kids from enjoying Berlin's Legoland Discovery Centre on Thursday afternoon.

Mom and Maddox, Pax and Shiloh piled into a Mercedes van and headed to the indoor fun facility, where the kids played for about 90 minutes, before selecting some Lego toys from the gift shop. Pax had the hardest time deciding which package to choose, reports the German tabloid, B.Z..

Jolie seems to be a fan of Legoland, having visited the version in England with one of her kids last September. She also has donated generously to Merlin's Magic Wand, a worldwide charity created by the operator of Legoland to provide fun experiences for children who are seriously ill, disabled or disadvantaged.

Angelina Jolie is as well known for her work helping refugees around the world as she is for making movies. But she'll let her kids decide for themselves whether they want to follow in her activist footsteps.

"I'm not one of those moms who kind of lectures [my kids]," Jolie, 36, told reporters on Saturday at the 23rd Annual Palm Springs Film Festival. "But I do tell them, whenever I go on a trip, where I'm going and why. And on some occasions, they've come with me to different refugee camps. And they also go to their home countries a lot."

The actress, who wore an Elie Saab gown to the festival's awards gala, has faith her little ones will make decisions based on what they see in their day-to-day lives.

Hey, those people in the movies are getting married. Why aren't Mom and Dad?

That's the question Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's children have started asking, according to the actress, whose stance on marriage is the subject of intense interest outside the household as well.

"They have asked, yeah, because ... people get married in the movies," Jolie, 36, tells Nightline in an interview airing Monday. "Shrek and Fiona are married, you know?"

So, how does she respond? By explaining that you don't have to be married to be committed to a partner or your family.

Brad Pitt may appear to be on top of the world, but he insists that happiness is "overrated."

"I put much more emphasis on being a satisfied man," the actor, 47, tells Parade magazine in a revealing interview that will be published Sunday. "I'm satisfied with making true choices and finding the woman I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much."

Pitt describes his partner, Angelina Jolie, as "such a great mom," and says starting a family with her was "one of the greatest, smartest things I ever did."

"A family is a risky venture, because the greater the love, the greater the loss," he adds. "That's the trade-off."
