Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis shared the small screen together for eight years as on-again, off-again lovers in the Fox comedy hit "That '70s Show." Even after the show was canceled, they remained close friends, as did the rest of the group, including costars Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama. Kunis would go on to date fellow actor Macaulay Culkin for eight years, while Kutcher would later marry Demi Moore in a much-celebrated marriage that was ripe for tabloid fodder for many years. Despite these other high-profile romances and other stumbling blocks, the preternaturally beautiful actors found their way to each other and have now been dating for over a year. Now, some sources are speculating that Kutcher wants to propose to Kunis, solidifying a seemingly blissful relationship that was quite literally years in the making.
When Kunis' relationship with "Home Alone" star Culkin soured in 2010, the actress put her head down and kept working, building a reputation as one of the nicest and hardest-working actresses in the business. Kutcher meanwhile shot down rumors about trouble in his marriage with Moore, whom he wed in 2005 after two years of dating. In the fall of 2011, Moore finally confided to the world what gossip blogs had been writing about for months—that her relationship with Kutcher was strained and the two had separated.
Kutcher and Moore continued their charity and business relationship amid rumors that the actor had cheated on her with another woman on their anniversary. Just four months after the official announcement of their separation, rumors began swirling that Kutcher had taken up with Kunis, though representatives for both of them denied it for weeks. They were seen together in public, but the two showed no overt signs of affection and may have been trying to hide their budding relationship. They even went out to dinner with former costars Valderrama and Prepon, which allowed their reps to claim that they were just out on the town with friends.
In the spring of 2012, the couple finally admitted through their representatives that they were dating. Though Kutcher was something of a tabloid magnet, Kunis had always been very private with her love life, even when she was living with Culkin. Kutcher seems to have taken a page out of her playbook, since the two rarely talk about their relationship in public.
After a year of dating, many people believe that Kutcher is in love and is considering proposing to Kunis. The problem was that he didn't actually officially file for divorce from Moore until December 2012, more than a year after their separation. In March 2013, Moore filed her own divorce papers, seeking spousal support and payment of all court and lawyer fees. Kutcher balked at this additional expense, so their divorce is now tied up in negotiations between both sides and their respective lawyers.
All of this divorce strife doesn't seem to be slowing the relationship between Kutcher and Kunis, however. During Kutcher's hiatus from his hit CBS comedy "Two and Half Men," the couple traveled the world and was photographed on the Great Wall of China. Though it is not yet certain when Kutcher's divorce will be finalized, that may not stop him from proposing to Kunis, who by all accounts is ready to marry him. His friends are reportedly so sure that he wants to propose that the only real question is whether he will give Moore what she wants in order to get the divorced finalized faster or wait it out and just continue to date Kunis for awhile.
If and when they become engaged, the couple will be hard pressed to find time to actually plan their nuptials due to their busy schedules. Kutcher regularly puts in long days on the set of his sitcom, while Kunis' film career has taken off recently. She will next be seen "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn" opposite Peter Dinklage and Robin Williams, as well as the animated comedy "Hell & Back" with Jennifer Coolidge and Bob Odenkirk. In 2014, she is slated to star in the much-anticipated "Jupiter Ascending," which is being produced by the same team as "The Matrix" trilogy. All this is in addition to her regular voice work as Meg Griffin on "The Family Guy."
