Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick put on a show of unity


Do Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick have an ‘unconventional’ marriage? While their union has been dogged by gay rumors, mostly related to Matthew’s Broadway theatre connections, a ‘source’ has spoken to the Daily Mail about their relationship, claiming that they’ve always had an unconventional marriage. Matthew was recently accused of having an affair with a woman while Sarah Jessica was away filming Sex and the City, which the source does not confirm or deny.

A source said that the 43-year-old actress had told a friend she and Broderick, 46, ‘had been out of love for a long time but remain married for their son’.

The source added: ‘Sarah and Matthew have been struggling for years. Now they have decided to make things work – especially for the sake of their son, James.’

Another source defended the couple, saying: ‘They have never had a conventional marriage, but it works for the two of them.

‘Sure they fight like other couples but they love each other and their little boy. They are so private and hate all this silly gossip.’

Daily Mail

“They fight like other couples but they love each other and their little boy.” Am I completely wrong in thinking that is actually the textbook definition of a traditional marriage? Instead of divorcing at the drop of a hat they are going to stay together and work through their issues, and stay as a family.

The Daily Mail also states that the pair tries to avoid being photographed together, but I’ve seen enough photos at premieres of them together to say that isn’t entirely true. I think they just try to not be photographed at all when they are living their private life, which does make the photos of them together out to dinner rare. Particularly the matching outfits make it look staged, although Matthew isn’t wearing his wedding ring. What do the white wristbands they both wear symbolize?

    CB, Dunno where to post this but why is it not possible to comment on the Jon Voight thread? It’s got no commenting facility. Either you’re testing out a new J-P comment idea – one comment only per thread so no fighting and pointless arguing – or there’s a glitch in your script.

    Seriously, is it just me? I think the same thing happened on the Obama/McCain/Brit Spears thread. One comment and then the gremlins descended.

  2. Kaiser says:

    It’s happening to me too, Geronimo.

    Re: SJP & Broderick – yeah, I do think it’s a unconventional marriage. It’s like a throwback to marriages where they live separate lives, yet live in the same house & raise their kid.

    I read elsewhere the white bracelets were Buddhism charms. If only they were red and we could jump on them about kabbalah.

    Can’t stand her, no matter how many people yell to the moon about her. And it looks like Matty has been playing War Games in the basement too long, then got sunburned by the paps’ cameras.

  4. Sue-blah says:

    She’s got a bad case of the extreme prissy’s….would not choose to be her friend-but other than that-boring.I still think this guy is gay,gay-Gay.No problem with that except he should not be married. Maybe he’s doing the british Richardson thing???

    This man used to be Hot,what happened to him. SJP, Is an attractive woman in my opinion, Love Her!!

  6. mollination says:

    That photo of them looks painful. He looks sheepish and she looks ready to throw in the towel.

  7. Alli says:

    I think he looks gleeful, like, “Yeay, I proved I’m a Man!”

    She looks sad and embarrassed. (Never mind, SJP, most of the world’s women and gays love you in any case!)

    He’s such a tool. “War Games” will never be as amusing again.

    I hope they work it out and give them credit for not giving up so quickly. Makes me wonder though… is it really fair to have the gay rumors follow Matthew just because of his Broadway connections? I’m not insinuating that we’re fostering those rumors, I’m just wondering about them.

  9. Trashaddict says:

    As far as looking sheepish, if the paps follow you ’round long enough, I’d bet they could get any one of a hundred expressions!
    At the risk of stereotyping, if he was gay wouldn’t he dress a bit better?

  10. Cate says:

    IMO, I think it’s wrong to stay together just for the sake of the children, your careers,-financial reasons etc.. That can be even more damaging than a divorce.-( unless it’s the nasty kind like Charlie Sheen& Denise Richards. Everyones’ parents are divorced now a days anyways.
    If you really want to screw somebody else, it’s time for a divorce.

  11. Cate says:

    I also agree with Missy about Matthew Broderick.. He used to be hot back in the Ferris Beuler day. But, he’s looked liked the Pillsbury doughboy for the past 10 +years now. Not sure why? Maybe he has Atkins Disease or something??

  12. Christina X says:

    I think it’s good they remain friends and all and instead of acting like Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen that they’re on good terms for the children, but what makes marriage what it is if you’re just friends?

  13. wristbands says:

    I agreen with Alli: I think he looks gleeful, like, “Yeay, I proved I’m a Man!”

    She looks sad and embarrassed. (Never mind, SJP, most of the world’s women and gays love you in any case!)

    He’s such a tool. “War Games” will never be as amusing again.

    Okay, so he’s not the tannest or the fittest, tell me, who is? Not everyone is perfect little photoshopped pictures. And just because he’s in broadway DOESN’T mean he’s gay, there are a ton of men who are on broadway and are straight. I won’t believe that he’s gay until I see it in the newspaper, not some lieing little tabloid that will say anything to get some extra money. I think he was cute in his ferris buellar days and now!
