But Matthew’s comments about marriage will make you think twice. Apparently, not everyone takes marriage lightly. Still, some people think of it as a precious covenant with their partner and the Almighty.
In an interview with GQ, Matthew revealed how he and his wife Camila viewed marriage. After a long courtship, and dating. They both knew they wanted to settle into marriage, they wanted everything to be perfect, especially in the eyes of the church.
Matthew then explained it further, saying:
“I had to get to the point where I saw it as more than just the thing to do. I wanted to really want to. You know, I didn’t want it to be a destination; the fun is that we’re on the adventure together.
So I spent a lot of time with her. We talked about it spiritually. We did a lot of reading and talked to a lot of people that had been divorced, a lot of people that had been happily married. We talked to our pastor.
In the end, our understanding was, Let’s go make a covenant, with you, me, and God. And let’s understand that this is not a destination, this is the beginning of an adventure that we’re taking together.”
The couple’s firm belief in marriage inspires other couples of today, not just Hollywood couples, but also common couples all over the world. Matthew and Camila now live with their three beautiful children, teaching them the value of marriage and family.
