Dax Shepard Reveals Why He Proposed to Kristen Bell When He Didn't Believe in Marriage

Dax Shepard is speaking to why he proposed to, and eventually married, Kristen Bell, despite being vocal about not believing in marriage.

“He has a great argument that the state having a piece of paper doesn’t mean he’s going to be nice to me and by my side for the rest of my life. [Rather], that is going to be evidenced by how we treat each other and the commitment that we make,” Kristen told People about Dax‘s stance. “I had surrendered, like ‘Okay, well, I’m never going to get any sort of traditional marriage out of this, and that’s okay because I trust him.’ I really, really trusted him and believed that we were going to go the long haul.”

Dax added, “Ultimately, I was like, ‘Well, I’m doing it because my partner wants that.’ Forget the tradition or history of marriage as a concept, you knowing I was doing something that I didn’t want to do because I loved you was a big sign for you.”

The couple married in 2013.
