After Thirty-four Years

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn are still together, but they’ve never bothered to tie the knot.  How exactly has their relationship lasted so long?

Goldie Hawn is in the news as she promotes her newest film, Snatched. Despite her talent as an actor and dedication as a activist, in her interviews she’s mostly being asked the secret of her relationship with her long-term partner, Kurt Russell. Goldie’s answer is earnest, simple and delightful, “Love, gratitude, compassion, because sometimes every man or every woman will drive their partner crazy. Family. Fun. Laughs. Sex,” Hawn says. “If you don’t nurture that, and remember, you’re done.” Very likely “that” meant sex.

Maybe it’s not any of our business, but it is hard not to wonder if they have been true to one another all this time, especially since they aren’t married. After all we really don’t know the rules which they have obviously agreed upon. Goldie addresses this  intimate topic in a surprisingly open manner. “Monogamy is a very tough order,” says Goldie. “You’re in the prime of your life, you are attracted to other people, potentially, you have fantasies about that. It really runs the risk, if you will, if you’re not aware that you could maybe screw up a really good thing by doing that.” Presumably, the “that” to which she is referring to sexual infidelity.

The key to staying together monogamously, she says, is how you deal with these particular feelings. “I’m sure I’ve been party to it, and Kurt’s been—we’re all normal this way. It’s like, ‘You really liked that guy, didn’t you?’ Or the woman says, ‘You were looking at her.’ My answer would be, ‘Of course. Why not? She’s beautiful.’ Would you want a man who doesn’t look? Who doesn’t feel inspired by the beauty or the curves of a woman’s body? Or the way she is? I mean, come on. We’re human beings. There is, I guess, an elasticity to the relationship. Otherwise it’s going to break, just like a rubber band.

The Dayology Analysis

Kurt Russell

It could be that the “elasticity” in Kurt and Goldie’s relationship comes naturally to them, and may not be as easy for other couples to achieve. The source of this interpersonal “give and take” comes from the water element linking their Sun Signs. These fluid energies allow them to OUTWARDLY share feelings and support one another. Still they are very different. Kurt as a Pisces. appears exceptionally laid back, but is truly sensitive, caring and thin skinned. Goldie, as a Scorpio, comes across as quirky, but is very passionate, committed and deep.

From our Dayology vantage point, we must point out that when a couple has four different Sun Signs and Day Rays, they require a lot of space to get along. With diverse INNER and OUTER rulers, they require unique experiences to satisfy their individual spiritual and physical needs. Kurt was born on Saturday, which adds solidity and seriousness to his nature. Goldie was born on Wednesday making her a thinker and communicator. To achieve INWARD satisfaction partners with four different rulers must be true to themselves and allow each other to do the same.
