Gabrielle Union & Dwyane Wade Are Smart to Play It Cool

gabrielle union dwyane wadeIf I were a rich and famous celeb like Gabrielle Union and my rich and famous celeb boyfriend happened to be turning 30 like Dwyane Wade, I would totally host a star-spangled birthday bash in his honor at the Setai Hotel in South Beach, Florida. If, that is, I was crazy in love with the guy and was pretty sure I wanted him to stick around for a long, long time.

Likewise, if I were a rich and famous celeb like Gabrielle Union and I was thinking about walking down the aisle with my rich and famous celeb boyfriend who happened to be a Miami Heat All-Star like Dwyane Wade, I would totally act like we weren't even close to getting married.

Especially if both my rich and famous self and my rich and famous boyfriend had painful divorces in our pasts ...

Look, I don't know if Union and Wade actually are getting married (jussayin', that party was a BIG gesture).

But if they are, I completely get why they're saying the opposite is true. In fact, I admire them for making remarks like these, by Wade:

"We're not rushing it. Both of us have been married before, and we understand that if we choose to marry again, we want it to be right."

"We both took failing at marriage hard. The next time it's gotta be forever."

And this one from Union:

"When it happens, it's going to be something that only our friends and family know about,"

Their discretion is proof that the couple understands the true value of marriage -- one of those life-altering realizations a person tends to have following a divorce (I speak from experience). Especially now, when every other celeb wedding seems to be nothing more than a gratuitous PR stunt.

So when and if Union and Wade do end up getting married, I have a feeling this "union" is going to last.

Do you think Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade will get married?
