AnnaLynne McCord Reveals the Secret to Her Successful May-December Relationship with Dominic Purcell

AnnaLynne McCord May-December Relationship with Dominic PurcellDespite with their 17-year age dif­fer­ence, Dominic Pur­cell and Anna­Lynne McCord’s May-December rela­tion­ship is still going strong. But even after two solid years together, the celebrity cou­ple isn’t ready to take their rela­tion­ship to the next level, at least she isn’t.

While speak­ing at a recent char­ity event where she was being hon­ored for her human­i­tar­ian efforts, the con­ver­sa­tion nat­u­rally turned to her May-December rela­tion­ship with Pur­cell, who was nowhere to be seen. She clar­i­fied that the only rea­son her “dar­ling” wasn’t there with her was because he was spend­ing some time in his native Aus­tralia with his four kids from a pre­vi­ous relationship.

When asked about whether or not they’ll be ring­ing wed­ding bells any­time soon, McCord made it pretty clear that mar­riage is not in their near future. “Every­body else is doing it. I got to go against the grain. So I’m hold­ing off,” said the 26-year-old actress. But that doesn’t mean that the celebrity cou­ple isn’t per­fectly happy together. “I was lis­ten­ing to Bryan Adams’s ‘Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman’ on the way over here and I thought, ‘Oh my God, I think he lis­tened to this song and that’s how I know he loves me!’”

McCord also touched on the fact that hav­ing to spend so much time apart because of busy work sched­ules is actu­ally what makes their May-December rela­tion­ship work. And when they’re together, this celebrity cou­ple is just like any other cou­ple. “We have the excite­ment of being away from each other then com­ing back together. So when we’re together, we’re lit­er­ally on the couch watch­ing Pawn Stars or Count­ing Cars.” Sounds like a per­fect match!

What do you think: Can dis­tance really bring a cou­ple closer together, or is that just a myth?
