The Million Dollar Baby star was married to actor Chad Lowe for nine years before their divorce in 2006. And she began dating her agent, John Campisi, in the wake of her marriage breakdown.
The couple is still together, but Swank is convinced there won't be a wedding in the next few years because neither of them is ready to rush back into a long-term commitment.
"I believe in the sanctity of marriage. John and I, you know, we were both in long marriages and it's not something that we need to rush back into..." the Daily Star quoted her as telling InStyle magazine.
"A lot of people look at divorce as a failure. I really look at my relationship with Chad as 14 years of success... Friends of mine and I talk about this. Does someone come into your life for a certain time, and then you are supposed to go your separate ways. There's a part of me that thinks that's true... But I believe in the long haul. I believe in having a monogamous relationship," she added.
