Halle Berry & Gabriel Aubry's date night in Los Angeles (August 6th 2009)

Actress Halle Berry and her male model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry hired a sitter Thursday night (Aug 6) to take care of the little one so that they could hit the town of Los Angeles for a date night.

And if you’re wondering why Gabriel will always be “boyfriend” and never “husband,” it’s because they both feel as though they don’t need to attach themselves to each other for life and don’t want to deal with the baggage that most marriages bring along. Sounds like the heart of a woman scorned…

“I’m so not the relationship go-to girl. But I’m much clearer about what a relationship is, which is why I will never marry again. Gabriel and I have a great partnership and a lovely daughter,” the Daily Telegraph quoted her as telling The Mail on Sunday newspaper. “But I once was stupid enough to say, in a previous relationship, ‘I’m going to be with this person for ever,’ and realised, as I grew, that I don’t know if for ever is possible. Gabriel and I don’t look at our relationship in terms of for ever, we look at it as right here today. And today means being the best people we can be, the best parents we can be. It’s wonderful, but neither one of us feels the need to attach ourselves to each other for life – because it may not be that,” she added.
