Marriage Is Important To Julianne Moore

Julianne Moore has said marriage is important for all couples as it makes a "container" for the family.

The 58-year-old actress has two children- Caleb, 21, and Liv, 16 - with her husband Bart Freundlich, who she wed almost 16 years ago.

In an interview with People magazine, she said: "Marriage is a container for a family and that's why legal marriage is important - that everyone be allowed to be married, every couple, because it's a way of saying to the world, 'I'm legally committed to this person and I'm going to make this container for the two of us, and then our children, and our life together.'"

Julianne continued that while her own marriage isn't perfect, it's still successful as both she and Brad are happy.

She added: "Our container is pretty good. It's not airtight but it's pretty good, especially now having one child (Caleb) who is 21, who is almost finished with college and then another (Liv) who will go to college in two years, you think, 'Wow we did it!' We are intact and we are happy."

The actress also explained her belief that true love doesn't "just happen", but has to be worked on just like anything else. "We have this narrative in our culture that if you want a career, you have to work hard, go to school, look for a job, you have to apply yourself but love is supposed to just happen to you. One day you're going to meet someone and get hit over the head and boom! That happens in romantic comedies but in real life you have to make time. When you find a person, you have to invest in them and that relationship. And that's what love is."
