The Sad Reason Why Angelina Jolie Will Never Get Married Again

How long should it take to get over a 12-year marriage? Angelina Jolie still hasn’t completely healed from her marriage to Brad Pitt, three years after their split.

Jolie is still reportedly angry about the way their relationship went down. She worked hard on their marriage, and Pitt wasn’t always easy to live with.  

Plus, even though they’ve been separated since 2016, their divorce is not yet finalized. Jolie and Pitt share custody and clash over how to best parent their children.

All in all, her separation from Pitt has been so ugly that the star has reportedly told friends she will never get married again.

According to sources close to Jolie: “Angelina still has a lot of resentment toward Brad. She wants him to be held accountable because she feels he turned her and the children’s lives upside down.”

Jolie already had a child, her son Maddox, before she and Pitt got married. She had her own unique parenting style that Pitt did not agree with. Jolie prefers to move around, and expose her children to different cultures and languages.

Pitt thinks children need stability. These two opposing viewpoints have created a lot of issues for Jolie and Pitt. Jolie told Harper’s Bazaar that she would move out of the country if she could, but: “right now, I’m having to base where their father chooses to live.” Basically, the court won’t allow her to take her children out of the country without Pitt’s permission.

Parenting issues aside, Jolie is mad that she married Pitt in the first place. There was a lot of drama surrounding their relationship in the beginning. The Mr. And Mrs. Smith stars were rumored to have gotten together while Pitt was married to Friends star Jennifer Aniston. Fans were upset on Aniston’s behalf, and some of that backlash fell on Jolie. According to sources, Jolie “felt that Brad pressured her,” and will never get married again.

Brad Pitt had a drinking problem

During their marriage, Pitt struggled with alcohol abuse and anger issues. He’s since admitted it and quit drinking. But that doesn’t help Jolie now. Especially since his drinking problem became very public and embarrassing for her and her children. 

Supposedly Pitt drank too much on an international flight to France and got into a huge fight with his son Maddox. Jolie ended their marriage soon after, but we get the feeling that this was just one of many similar incidents. Pitt has a lot of making up to do to Jolie. It seems like Maddox is still not over Pitt’s behavior, and supposedly he and Pitt are not currently on speaking terms. 

Angelina Jolie tried hard to save their marriage

Jolie even wrote, produced and directed a movie just to try and fix her relationship. She and Pitt fell in love on the set of Mr. And Mrs. Smith, so she hoped that starring in another movie together could rekindle some communication.

Jolie wrote By the Sea, and she and Pitt starred in it together in 2015. The movie was somewhat of a flop, both critically and in fixing Pitt and Jolie’s relationship.

While Jolie is glad she made it, she realized it just wasn’t enough. Especially since the movie she wrote featured a couple that shared her relationship problems. The husband in the movie struggled with substance abuse, just like Pitt. It’s natural that she would write about what she was going through, but unfortunately, she and Pitt never made amends like the couple in By the Sea.
