Sarah Silverman's Shocking Claim About Marriage Is a Little Much Even for Her

Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman has never been shy about the fact that she has no desire to ever get married, but her most recent comments seem totally over the top. The 43-year-old comedienne took to Twitter over the weekend to shine some light on the status of her current relationship.

The A Million Ways to Die in the West actress tweeted on Sunday, "Just read that I wanna get married which is hilarious b/c I will never get married."


Silverman has been dating her Masters of Sex co-star Michael Sheen for seven months, and if she has her way, he'll never put a ring on it. She has had several long-term romances (she was with Jimmy Kimmel for five years!), but has never been married.

Wait until you hear why. "Why would I want the govt involved in my love life?" she questioned. "Ew. It's barbaric."

Ew? Well, to each their own, I guess.

She continued her rant, taking issue with those who would assume that she even wants to be a wife because of her gender or even ethnicity. "That s--t never bothers me b/c who cares but I feel like this one is bigoted," she said. "The Jew girl MUST want a RING! Yich."

This is definitely not the first time she's made controversial comments about matrimony. In 2010, she told Playboy, "I love going to weddings, and I love it when my friends get married ... 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."

Do you think marriage is barbaric?
