After eleven years and two kids together, people were heartbroken about Naomi Watts and Liv Schreiber’s news about their relationship. But we suppose it perfectly encapsulates our point about marriage—that it is not for everyone. Naomi and Liv did not actually tie the knot, but they could have been, and if they did and it did come to an end, then it would have been worse.

After all, at least they did not have to go through the process of separation, which would have meant having to appoint lawyers, putting a strain on their finances, career, their children, fans, and each other. As of 2017, Naomi’s life partner is her fellow actor Billy Crudup. Both met together on the set of Gypsy and started dating ever since. However, there are no plans yet whether both she and Billy Crudup will be married in the future but let us keep our fingers crossed on that.
