In an interview for the February issue of Good Housekeeping, the Mindy Project star talks about marriage, family, and how her views on those things have changed over the years.
The 35-year-old actress described what she sees as the best part of a relationship and what she used to yearn for:
"If I could relive the first three months of courtship over and over for the rest of my life, I would. Especially in winter, who doesn't like a nice heavy seven-course meal with lots of alcohol, then making out when you're a little tipsy and taking a cab home to fall asleep in the clothes you wore on the date?
Wait. Actually that was, like, my whole 20s. And it was very fun. When I was younger, I wanted so badly to be married and have kids in a rush. I loved my parents' relationship. The way my father was with my mother when she was dying was so moving. It was such devotion. I don't know that that will happen for me, but I like it."
Awww, sounds like she had GREAT examples to look up to!
But now that Mindy is entirely self-sufficient, she recognizes that marriage is not a necessary thing!
Her current view on the matter is this:
"I don't need marriage. I don't need anyone to take care of all my needs and desires. I can take care of them myself now.
So basically, Mindy is a strong, independent woman who doesn't need a man!!
