Love is in the air for Hollywood’s favorite hunks! According to UsMagazine.comBrad Pitt believes that marriage is more than just  a license, which isn’t a surprising opinion considering he recently tied the knot with long-time celebrity love and mother of their children, Angelina Jolie. Pitt commented on actor friend, George Clooney, in light of his Hollywood relationship and rather public celebrity wedding celebration, saying, “Well, you know, George is extremely accessible. He’s one of our best representatives. He’s funny as sh-t. He’s a joy to be around. I guess maybe I’m more of a miserable b–tard. I’m a bit of a loner, you know? I’m more quiet by nature. And coming from hillbilly country, I’m probably more reserved.” Lately, Pitt has been backing off from his acting career to spend more time with his celebrity love and family. 

Now that George Clooney is a married man, a lot will change between him and his celebrity love. What are three ways a relationship changes after marriage?

Cupid’s Advice: 

We’ve come a long way since the standard was grow up, get married, and have babies. Every relationship is unique, and every couple has their own way of living life, but there are some changes that come with marriage if and when that happens. Cupid has some thoughts on them:

1. Becoming Mr. and Mrs.: There are now more options when it comes to the woman changing her name. You can: take your spouse’s name but keep your pre-marriage name for professional reasons; get creative and start a new legacy with a new last name together; or change your maiden name to your middle name.

2. What’s mine is yours: Whether or not you signed a prenup, marriage comes with the principle that you will be sharing a life together. With that idea comes the elements of money, property and children, so be a contributor, listener, and lover.
