Emily Blunt: I didn’t yearn for marriage

Emily Blunt insists she was never a “militant” bride.

The British star married American actor John Krasinski in Lake Como in 2010. Emily hadn’t thought too much about her big day before she met John. When she was planning the nuptials, Emily stayed focused but made sure she didn’t get too obsessed with the details.

“I wasn’t ever that girl that was dreaming about her wedding day,” she told Marie Claire. “I didn’t want it to be a militant, overly thought-out, overly planned affair because I think that’s when you get into trouble. Who knows what’s going to go wrong on the wedding day – the dress could rip, who knows? I was very laid-back about it and decisive.

“I don’t think I was a huge advocate of [marriage] before I met John but I am huge advocate for meeting the right person. They have to be your best friend, your everything really.”

The 29-year-old star was also quizzed on how having a husband has changed her life. Emily is adamant that women can have both a career and a happy marriage.

“Absolutely not, I think you have to have it all,” she replied, when asked if women have to choose between work and marriage. “And this is not an age where women should be waiting at home for husband and making sure the meal is on the table by seven. This is the era of equality and women flourishing and doing really well. I think you can do everything, it is possible.”
