TMZ: Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth are too cool & Millennial to get married

2018 Vanity Fair Oscars Party

There’s a lot of rumor mongering going on lately about two things involving Miley Cyrus: one, that she might have new music coming out very soon, and two, that she and Liam Hemsworth are on the verge of a breakup. I tend to believe those two sets of rumors are connected, in that Miley thinks we’ll be more likely to pay attention to her music if it comes with a side of relationship drama. Anyway, TMZ (of all outlets) had a story this weekend about how Miley and Liam are just fine, but they probably won’t get married.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are amused by persistent rumors they’re splitting up because they haven’t tied the knot … ’cause going to the altar isn’t important and, in fact, it may never happen. It may sound strange if you’re older than 35, but sources directly connected to the couple say the formality of marriage isn’t important. What they view as important are … they love each other, they’re happy and enjoy each other’s company.

We asked the obvious question … why then get engaged? We’re told their engagement back in October 2016 was a symbol of commitment, but it was enough of a symbol for them. Miley has actually said she doesn’t want to get married, despite the engagement. She doesn’t think it makes a relationship better.

We’re told privately they are as tight as any married couple, with very little drama. As one source put it, “They’re both super chill and grounded. They’re perfect for each other.”

As for the breakup rumors … they literally laugh them off.

“It may sound strange if you’re older than 35…” Um, WTF? Plenty of people over the age of 35 don’t give a sh-t about marriage either! Plenty of Xennials and Gen-Xers are like “meh” with the whole marriage thing too, just FYI. I think we may have INVENTED not giving a sh-t about marriage. As for the rest of it… if Miley says so. I tend to think that their intention was never to marry, and they did just get “engaged” as more of a “promise ring” sort of thing. Whatever.

    I still say “then why get engaged?” A symbol of commitment? That’s not really what engagement is. Just give each other rings or something if that’s important to you. Or don’t. Nobody actually cares if you get married.

    I vote they’re splitting soon.

    • Yup, Me says:

      I’ve got no dog in this fight either way (whether they’re splitting or just non traditional) but I can see the reason for getting engaged but not going through with the legally binding aspects of marriage- ESPECIALLY in California. I think it’s probably financially wiser for her to remain unmarried but committed. I think it makes it easier to keep love and business separated.

      • tealily says:

        Right, but that’s not really an “engagement” though, is it? I guess I’m quibbling about the semantics, but the fact that they called themselves “engaged” and didn’t just exchange promise rings or whatever makes it seem like the intention (at least in the beginning) was marriage, but marriage isn’t going to happen. I suppose they could have just changed their minds about what they want their relationship to be, but they also seem like a mess.

    If ur older than 35. Bwahahahahaha. Someone’s insecure about their existence.

    I think that if marriage is important to you, that’s fine. If it isn’t, that’s fine, too. But as a happily married person, to whom marriage was and is important, it’s a little irritating to read hot-takes from celebrities that seem to declare marriage “dead” or otherwise irrelevant. It most certainly is not, as indicated by the enormous impact of the Obergefell v. Hodges decision that (finally, at long last) granted the right to marry to all consenting adults. Miley and Liam can marry or not, as their marriage or lack thereof has no impact on my life and is none of my business. But marriage is certainly more than enjoying each others’ company, and their “we’re too cool to marry” standpoint has sprained my eyeballs due to extreme, extended rolling. Marriage is way more than a piece of paper, and to some of us, it’s important.

    Remember when Miley went on a two year bender masking it as music and expression and then putting on cowboy boots and acting as though that never happened? No? Just me? K.

  6. Case says:

    Don’t really get the debate on whether marriage is important or not. That completely depends on the couple and the situation. My best friend, a millennial, is getting married soon. I’m also a millennial and not sure where I stand yet — I lean toward not getting married, but I think when I meet someone special, I’ll know what feels right. Marriage is obviously deeply personal and not important for every couple. But for others, it holds a lot of meaning.

    I don’t really get the endless engagement idea, though. You’re technically “engaged to be married.” If you don’t want to get married that’s all well and good, but wouldn’t something like promise/commitment rings be more apt?

    I am 39 years old and was married for just over a decade when we decided to divorce. The divorce was extremely painful and it has taken a long time for me to rebuild my life.

    Despite the heartache and struggles of my failed marriage, I still believe in love and would get married again if/when I meet Mr. Right-for-Me 💕

    Wishing Miley and Liam the best…as long as they love and support each other and are happy that is all that matters 😊

    She’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    It’s hard to put into words, but something about this relationship makes me feel uneasy for her. Maybe it’s the whole narrative about how Liam only came back because she promised to be less crazy/calmed her down, maybe it’s the Crapo songs and the toned down image.

    • Artemis says:

      It’s not hard, she wanted her man back after singing not 1 but 2 albums about him. The first one about how much she loves him despite him cheating on her and ignoring her. The 2nd one about how much she misses him and can’t get him out of her mind even when she has another bf (Patrick Schwarzenegger). She was desperate while he was out having fun paying her no mind. Her pics on Instagram of that time were sad, when you always party but you clearly hurting, that’s not power or growth. That’s distraction.

      He doesn’t have a career to speak of after that Terminator flop and then all of a sudden, when he was ready, they got back together. Deep down she must know this relationship benefits him more than her so it’s smart to not get married. She even flopped for him (Younger Now) because she was intent to prove she’ll be the perfect sweet girl for her man so I don’t believe she’s happy. Let’s see what’s gonna happen in the next era, if she’s gonna culture vulture again to save her career. I’ll wonder what she’ll choose: relationship or career. I wonder if Liam even cares, he doesn’t have that Hunger Games fame anymore from the last time they broke up. Maybe they are finally happy now, they deserve each other.
