Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have been together for 14 years, they have 2 children and never married. They look to be splitting up and now Depp is apparently consulting lawyers over the whole thing especially as the lack of marriage now complicates the split. She has money but he earned £200 million from the shittest franchise ever ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ He also has monies from all his other films and now has to sort out his finances. I bet he now realises how much easier all this would have been with a marriage. You can be committed enough to set up house with someone for 14 years as well as have two kids with them but you can’t get married or even engaged? Not even to protect your fortune? What are French common-law laws like?
