Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis
Celebrity couples find a variety of reasons for avoiding the walk down the aisle; Johnny Depp is straightforward about his. "It would be a shame to ruin her last name! It's so perfect — Vanessa Paradis. So beautiful. It would be such a drag to stick her with Paradis-Depp. It's like a flat note." But after 11 years and two children together, Depp hasn't ruled out matrimony entirely. "If she ever said: 'Hey, let's get hitched,' I would do it in a second. We'll do it if the kids want us to, or maybe when the kids are old enough to enjoy it with us."
