    Rose Byrne Explained Why She And Bobby Cannavale Haven't Gotten Married, And It Makes A Lot Of Sense

    "I love weddings, and I know people [for whom] it's an important thing."

    Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale have been together for a long time.

    And when I say a long time, I mean at least nine years.

    But even though they’re clearly meant for each other, something has always gotten in the way of them getting married.

    Byrne talked all about it during a recent interview with the Sydney Morning Herald.

    "I keep going, 'Let's get around to it, let's do it.' And then, you know, you have a baby, and then, oh, there's another baby,” she explained. “It was kind of like that for us.”

    "I love weddings, and I know people [for whom] it's an important thing, and I respect that totally,” she continued. "I guess for us it's just been, we didn't do it, we'll do it, then — no! Pandemic.”

    Although they’re not married, Byrne and Cannavale still call each other husband and wife.

    Cannavale explained why they do that during a previous interview with Vulture.

    "I hate all the other words! It's just easier to say 'husband and wife,’” he said. "Boyfriend and girlfriend feels so young. Partner feels so sterile. What else could we say? 'My lover?!’”

    It’s true that every relationship is different. If Byrne and Cannavale never decide to get married, then that’s fine, but if they do, then they better invite me to the wedding!
