Keira Knightley says marriage is tricky. She is an English actress, and and she started off her career as a child in Star Wars says that it definitely can be. The Bend It Like Beckham says that her work commitments and also her husband’s Klaxons rocker James Righton, make their lives difficult spending enough time together. She also believes it is important in finding the balance in which a relationship needs doing things alone and with each other. Asked if she goes on tour with her spouse, she said:
”Yeah, a little bit but not always. You want to be slightly part of each other’s world so you can see what makes them tick. If one person is on tour for three months and the other’s on a film set, your lives become very separate. It’s tricky. You should have your own thing, but equally you have to build a life together.”
The couple were married in May, 2013 in France as she says this was not one her priorities, she said she did it because she thought a wedding would be fun.
Speaking to the new issue of America’s Glamour magazine about whether she had always been a fan of marriage, she said:
”Not at all! Actually my parents kept saying,
‘Why bother?’ I think they only [got married] to get a mortgage.
”But when James proposed, I just thought, Well, never done that before. It seemed like a fun thing to do.”
And although the twenty nine has been married for a year now she still is not ready to change her surname.
”I went to do the passport thing. ‘Cause I was thinking, Shall I do it? It will be helpful. But you actually have to see it written down, and I found I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t go there. Yet.”
