Hilary Duff is happily dating fitness trainer Jason Walsh, but she’s not planning a walk down the aisle anytime soon. The Younger star opened up about relationships past, present, and future on The Love Bomb podcast, and doesn’t see herself putting on another wedding dress.

“I don’t feel the need to get married again. As much as I was ready and excited, you’re like, ‘Oh next step: We get married.’ That’s kind of the traditional person I’m talking about that’s inside of me, or however I was raised. But I don’t feel the need,” she revealed. “I got to have the experience and it was awesome. So, I guess if it mattered to someone else that much, I would consider it.”

That’s not to say that she regrets her 2010 wedding to hockey player Mike Comrie. “When we were deciding to get married, I was totally down and I felt totally ready. I had already been working as an adult since I was 12 years old,” she said. “So 22 doesn’t seem that crazy to get married. But I never pictured my wedding dress and all that.”

“It’s something to be taken very seriously, and I was so happy to be married. I think that I was in a very successful marriage for a very long time,” she said. “We got together based on love and we separated in a very loving way. I can’t imagine going through that process with anyone but him, and he continues to be my very good friend.”

Now, she’s a happy mother to 4-year-old son Luca, which is fulfillment enough. “I have dreams and aspirations, but I’ve never really been one of those people who has set dates: ‘I’m this age, so this, this and this needs to happen.’ That’s just not really realistic,” she said.

“I have a kid. My life is very full, so I feel blessed and lucky. There are still things I want to do and experiences I want to have, and maybe more kids, but it’s not like it needs to happen at this time and I need to be married. All those pressures need to go away.”
