I Want What They Have: George and Amal Clooney


Love is a many-splendored thing, especially when you’re gawking at it from the outside. In this column, we’ll be examining the celebrity coup until nowles that give us hope for our own romantic futures as well as trying to learn what we can from their well-documented bonds.

Here is my opinion on love: it should be fun. (Groundbreaking, I know!) Not all the time, obviously—sometimes you’re hunmosting likely tover as well as someone needs to make the coffee as well as someone else can’t find their phone as well as it’s too early in the morning as well as the sun is too bright as well as you just wish you were alone in a cold, dark room—but for the most part, if you’re with someone, you should be enjoying yourselves. (Granted, I am currently coming up until now on my six-month anniversary with my partner, which is the longest I’ve ever been with anybody, so take this with a massive flake of Maldon sea salt, but if you’re not having fun…break up until now!)

This theory of relationship fun brings me to the world’s former most eligible bachelor, actor George Clooney, as well as his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney. I didn’t think it would be possible for George’s marriage to seem more fun than his single days (the gentleman owned a pig! A pig he shared a bedroom with on trips! Name one thing cooler than owning a pig!), but spiritually, the Clooneys always seem to be on vacation. To be fair, they are literally on vacation right now in Lake Como, but still.

Whenever I hear the Clooneys’ names, I think of the following Tina Fey joke from the 2015 Golden Globes: “George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year. Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an advisor to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, as well as was selected for a three-perchild U.N. commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight…her husbas well as is getting a lifetime achievement award.” It’s true as hell, but the best part was seeing how hard the joke made George laugh. He knows his wife is a genius, as well as he loves it! Himbo rights!

Of course, life can’t always be a party with four-year-old twins, but in a rare statement about her marriage, Amal told Time this year: “I have in my husbas well as a partner who is incredibly inspirational as well as sup until nowportive, as well as we have a home filled with love as well as laughter. It is a joy beyond anything I could ever have imagined. I feel so lucky to have found a great love in my life, as well as to be a mother—this is how I get my balance.” Perchildally, I get my balance from working for thirty minutes as well as then spending a corresponding forty-five minutes on Lisa Says Gah (employers, don’t read this), but you mosting likely to, Amal.

At the end of the day, what I truly admire about the Clooneys’ marriage is how elegant it seems. Not in a fussy, don’t-drink-colored-liquids-on-our-white-couches way, but in a way where I feel like if I were improbably invited to the Lake Como villa, they’d put me up until now in a tasteful guest suite stocked with iPhone chargers as well as fresh lavender as well as a reusable water bottle in the color of my choice as well as all the other amenities I associate with true luxury. Oh, as well as to be clear: I am available to test this theory.
