Who is george clooney dating dec 2016
Nevertheless, we’re sure nobody is hinting at a Clooney-Alamuddin rift yet. As the nephew of the late singer Rosemary Clooney, and the son of a TV newscaster, you might think George Clooney had a leg up in showbiz. Alamuddin’s mother was a journalist, Clooney’s dad was an anchorman.Alamuddin has way more formal education than Clooney, who never finished college, but seems to have picked up some useful skills.Celebrities, as anyone who has ever passed a magazine stand at the checkout knows, are always on the verge of divorcing.Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie veer toward the off-ramp to splitsville at least once a month, or whenever tabloids aren’t selling so well.“The tendency of the well-educated to marry each other,” notes Sawhill is “what scientists call ‘assortative mating.”” Those relationships have proved to be the most stable. Clearly Clooney’s wealth dwarfs Alamuddin’s, but she’s not without means.In any case, wealth — not crazy money, but a lack of need — tends to produce more stable families, or at least poverty produces unstable ones, especially if there are kids involved.
Alamuddin and Clooney had only been dating for about a year when they got married, and only about six months before they got engaged.
But be warned, ye Cassandras, Clooney and Alamuddin have gone about getting married in the way that sociologists say leads to a lower likelihood of divorce.
Here’s why, with help from economist and Brookings Institute egghead Isabel Sawhill’s new book 1) They’re Old. That’s higher than the average age people get married (for men it’s 29, and women it’s 27, although this is Clooney’s second marriage.) There’s a pretty strong correlation between the age at which you get married and the likelihood that your marriage survives, says Sawhill. The average age at which women get married is now than the average age at which women have their first baby, notes Sawhill.
ABC's "Good Morning America" repeated that information Thursday morning. George, 55, and Amal, 39, married in Italy in September 2014.
Speculation about Amal's pregnancy was sparked in early January by photos of her "sporting a little bump" in an "uncharacteristic loose dress" at a Netflix screening in London.
