Theron: 'I Don't Want To Get Married'

Charlize Theron has never yearned to get married, and insists she has no plans to tie the knot to boyfriend of seven-years Stuart Townsend.
The couple has been subject to numerous marriage rumours throughout their long romance, but maintain they are as close and committed as any married couple, and have no plans to change their situation.
Theron tells the July issue of Glamour magazine, "Even when I was a little girl I never dreamed of the white dress and all of that.
"I want to be clear: I am not judgmental about marriage. I am judgmental about how our government doesn't want to see the reality of gay and lesbian marriages."
Married or not, Theron insists maintaining a long relationship requires effort. The Oscar winner adds, "I think if you are in a one or two-year relationship, love is enough. You can thrive on that. When you hit years three and four, you realise that if you're going to live with somebody ... you have to be nurtured emotionally and spiritually, and you have to be intrigued. Because if that intrigue runs out, you're not going to want to go home anymore."
And that includes letting each other flirt and develop crushes on other members of the opposite sex: "I've always said that I worry about being with a man who doesn't flirt. I love that Stuart can watch tennis and tell me that he's got a crush on a tennis player. We're not meant to just like one person. But (that) doesn't mean you go and build a life with another person."
