When Amal and George Clooney became engaged in 2014, everything seemed to be falling into place. A leading actor of Hollywood, George dated around for decades, and had one marriage to actress Talia Balsam, that lasted from 1989 until 1993. When he met Amal, a British-Lebanese human rights lawyer, she checked all of the boxes, and the two complimented each other well.

The couple married on September 27, 2014 at a palace in Italy. Then on June 6, 2017, the couple welcomed twins Ella and Alexander into the world. The famous couple continues to make appearances, including Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding, and their marriage is going strong. There is one thing, however, that Amal promised George she will “never” do again, for the sake of their marriage. So what is it?

Amal recently published a legal text that spans 1,000 pages, titled The Right to a Fair Trial in International Law, written with professor Philippa Webb. When Amal was speaking at a virtual book launch, she admitted that the book put a strain on her husband. She said, “I also want to just end by thanking my husband, George. I know this process seemed interminable to him, especially since I was always so sure that this was ‘the very last drafting session’ over and over again.” She ended with, “For my side, I can promise for the sake of our marriage that I will never do this again.”
