Angelina Jolie’s view on fidelity in a relationship
Regarding the topic of infidelity, the actress has some strict rules that she upheld for her integrity. She was adamant about not making love with her ex-husband Brad Pitt while he was married to Jennifer Aniston. It was because her father had cheated on her mother. Jolie shared in an interview with People,
“To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive. I could not, could not look at myself in the morning if I did that.”
The action of infidelity can become the breaking point for some relationships, but for Jolie, it was not the worst that could happen in a marriage or any other bond.
“I doubt that fidelity is absolutely essential for a relationship. It’s worse to leave your partner and talk badly about him afterward. Neither Brad nor I have ever claimed that living together means to be chained together. We make sure that we never restrict each other.”
Angelina Jolie started dating Brad Pitt after working together in the 2004 film. The couple got married in 2014, and they share six children. She filed for divorce from Pitt in 2016.
