Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds were “married” in a private wedding on the island of Bora Bora on New Year’s Day. However to make the marriage legal, the couple needed a ceremony performed in the U.S. They decided to pass and are now “just friends” according to a statement issued to Reuters:
“After much consideration and discussion, we have jointly decided that we will forego having a legal ceremony as it is not necessary to define our relationship further,” the statement said.
“While the recent symbolic union in Bora Bora was representative of our deep love, friendship and respect that we have for one another on a spiritual level, we have decided to remain friends,” it added.
That’s amazing. It’s a marriage that ends after the honeymoon and isn’t legally recognized by the United States. Seriously, they should offer these on cruise ships. Or, at the very least, the strip club by the bus station. I’d love to marry a stripper for a short amount of time that won’t cost me alimony. I’d treat her good though. I’ll even make her a pillow by stuffing dollar bills and beer bottles in a trash bag. You know, so she’ll feel at home.
