Their reasons for not settling seemed legit as in one of the interviews Don revealed this unofficialness of them and said:
”When you are with someone for 14 years, what’s the difference?”.”I have nothing against marriage — it’s just another production that we haven’t gone into yet.”
Adding to this, she told about some of her personal matters to HollywoodRag. She stated:
"I am very happy with him and I am the luckiest woman alive! Marriage might bring divorce and it's a very awful thing that can happen to a person. Marriage also doesn't guarantee that a couple would last forever and I am happy with what I have right now."
As per rumors, the pair has already tied the knot secretly several years ago without any announcement as he has always referred Bridgid as his wife.
Not only that, the pair also have two adorable kids together which alone is enough to tell that they are insanely in love with each other.
