‘90s icon and actress Winona Ryder recently shared her feelings on love, and they were totally empowering for those of us who love love, but don’t feel a pressing need to get married.

Calling herself a “serial monogamist” in an interview with The Edit, Ryder talked about how she takes love very seriously and wouldn’t want to just throw herself into a marriage if she had any concerns at all that divorce could be on the table.

Ryder said she’s “happily with someone for quite a while now,” but that doesn’t mean she does or doesn’t want to get married.

The actress seriously doesn’t mess around when it comes to love and romance. “When your parents are madly in love for 45 years,” she said, “your standards are really high.”

Whether Ryder decides to get married or to just be in a committed and loving relationship, it’s totally her choice. It’s super admirable to see a woman refuse to succumb to the social pressure that (unfortunately) still very much exists and expects women to find love and get married and have children ASAP.

After all, only we know when we’re ready for something as major as marriage.

Married or not, we’re just happy she’s happy.
