Sarah Silverman is funny and opinionated and although she has been in several long-term relationships, she says that marriage just isn't something she is interested in.

Silverman is currently dating her Masters of Sex costar Michael Sheen.

The two have been together for seven months and rumors that they are considering marriage have begun to circulate.

Silverman became aware of the rumors and set the record straight on her Twitter page.

Silverman insists that she is not against marriage, it's just her personal decision not to get married.

In 2010 Silverman did an interview with Playboy and shared her opinion on marriage as well.

"I love going to weddings, and I love it when my friends get married," she said at the time. "I'm not against marriage, but it's just not for me. I'm a vegetarian, but I don't have a problem if you want a hamburger. Marriage, to me, is like eating meat. I think it's gross and f--king crazy… If you're getting married today, it's the equivalent of joining a country club that doesn't allow blacks or Jews."

Silverman dated Jimmy Kimmel for over five years and has also been romantically linked to writer Alec Sulkin and comedian Kyle Dunnigan.

In spite of her decision to not get married, Silverman said that she still prefers long-term relationships and can be in love with someone without having to sign a paper to prove it.
