Mischa Barton: 'Marriage Puts Pressure on Relationships'

March 22, 2009 by dino

Mischa Barton believes marriage puts “too much pressure” on a relationship.

The actress – who recently split from British rocker Luke Pritchard – insists she won’t be walking down the aisle anytime soon.

She says, “I’m not a huge fan of marriage. It puts too much pressure on the relationship. People try harder until they’re married and then you see a lot of relationships fall apart because it’s the last step. There’s nothing left.

“Whoever is going to be the father of my children I’ll probably inevitably marry – but that’s not on the cards any time soon.”

The former O.C. star recently revealed that her perfect man is someone who is confident enough to flirt with her and can make her laugh.

“I have noticed that some men are scared of me because I have been on television. I have quite a few die hard fans,” she said.

“I find men with confidence and a great sense of humor very attractive. Those are the two factors that matter the most.”
