Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt on Marriage: Why We Weren't Ready to Tie the Knot

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.

But the couple, who've been together since 2005, have had plenty to say on the subject of marriage over the years – namely why they weren't going to do it.

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:

A day after dazzling in velvet Versace at the Academy Awards, Angelina Jolie was back to normal – and showing a lot less leg – running errands in L.A. Monday.

After taking a coffee break with partner Brad Pitt's mom, Jane, the actress, dressed down in black, was spotted out and about with 3-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne.

And although she was all smiles, Jolie, 36, wasn't striking any poses for the paparazzi like she did when she hit the Oscars stage to present the award for Best Adapted Screenplay Sunday night.

Once again, Brad Pitt was turning heads on the red carpet Monday night. And it wasn't just because of a gorgeous Angelina Jolie on his arm, but because of his newest accessory: a black cane.

The actor, 48, who previously told reporters he had an injured ACL (a ligament in the knee that connects the femur with the tibia), tells PEOPLE he's doing just fine.

"It wasn't life or death," Pitt, who slipped down a hill while carrying 3-year-old daughter Vivienne, said at Monday's New York Film Critics Circle Awards. "It was just an old man tripping."

Angelina Jolie: I Don't Lecture My Children

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."

Was it ladies day out for the Jolie-Pitts?

Shiloh, Zahara and Vivienne were glued to Angelina Jolie as they exited a showing of the Smurfs movie in London.

Jolie held onto youngest daughter Vivienne, 3, and squeezed 6-year-old Zahara's hand, while Shiloh, 5, led the way – blanket in hand, thumb in mouth!

They did have some male escorts though: Papa Pitt with Pax and Knox weren't far behind.

But one member of the Jolie-Pitt brood seems to have taken that one step further.

On Monday, the architecture-loving Pitt and Jolie booked a private tour of Hill House, the Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed home in Helensburgh, Scotland, near where the family is staying. Afterward, the couple was spotted picking up souvenirs at the gift shop (including novelty pencils for the kids), and sat down to a traditional supper, where Maddox showed off his surprisingly sophisticated palate.
