Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have been going strong for a couple of years now, but word has it that the disgustingly sexy pair are on the verge of splitting up because of commitment issues. Yes, that old one-wants-a-wedding-one-doesn't ickiness. But I mean, who can blame Gos for not wanting to settle down? As one of the sexiest men alive -- and first choice for Christian Grey -- you can't fault a guy for -- oh, wait a sec, what's this? Rumor has it the couple are on rocky ground because it's EVA who doesn't want to get married and RYAN who is pressing for her to stop wasting the best years of his life. OMG, is there a woman who will not marry Ryan Gosling? For reals?
A source told Hollyscoop:
Ryan’s friends know he is ready to settle down, 100 percent. Eva loves Ryan, but she’s very nontraditional when it comes to what she wants. She’s phobic about commitment. That’s the root of the problem.
Has anyone checked to see if the root of the problem is a brain tumor, or perhaps deep-seated mental illness? For what woman, what woman my friends, would turn down the chance to marry Gos?! Only a sick, sick woman.
But no. Eva has always been steadfast that she doesn't want to get married. I know. But the proof is here in this interview with Chelsea Handler where she calls marriage "unromantic" and "unsexy":
Of course, this interview happened shortly before she met the marriage-lovin' Gos.
Ugh, I feel bad for Ry. He's probably saying things to Eva like, "I'm not getting any younger, you know!" Maybe he silently cries in their bed. He probably looks in the mirror and wonders what's wrong with him. "Is it because I'm not pretty enough?" he asks the mirror.
Seriously, though, if Eva doesn't feel she's the marrying kind, then she shouldn't get married, even if the guy who wants to marry her is, like, God.
Plenty of hot, beautiful, sexy people get married, and they don't last necessarily last. (See Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom.) If marriage isn't in your blood, don't do it because everyone thinks you're crazy not to. You're the one who has to get married, not them!
Besides, did you see what happened to Ryan when he married Michelle Williams in Blue Valentine? Totally. Creepy.
Do you think that people should get married if they find a great guy but are against marriage?
