Susan Sarandon has had many high-profile relationships throughout her life, but just the one marriage to actor Chris Sarandon, who is known for portraying Prince Humperdinck in "The Princess Bride." Now, Susan Saradan reveals why she never wanted to get married again.
Sarandon (née Tomalin) and Chris Sarandon first started dating at The Catholic University of America, but because the Catholic university forbade cohabitation, she revealed in 2021, "I decided to get married, simply because we would've gotten kicked out of school." The couple was married in 1967 and remained together for seven years before deciding to part ways.
Sarandon and Tim Robbins met while filming "Bull Durham," dated for 20 years, had two sons together, and eventually split in 2009. In 2006, when asked why she’s never married Robbins, she said, "I think one of the reasons I haven't married Tim is that I hate that couples assumption — that once you're committed to someone you stop treating each other as individuals."
"I've always liked the idea of choosing to be with somebody," she further said to The Telegraph in 2010, less than a year after her split with Robbins was made public. "I thought that if you didn't get married you wouldn't take each other for granted as easily. I don't know if after twentysomething years that was still true," she added.
