Jessica Biel doesn’t need to marry

Jessica Biel has no desire to get married.

The actress – who has been dating Justin Timberlake since last year – insists she won’t be upset if she doesn’t ever walk up the aisle.

She said: “The actual idea of signing those papers and doing all this stuff … I’ve never been someone who’s like, ‘I have to, have to, have to have it.’

“But the idea of being with somebody I care about, who is my soul mate, that sounds groovy!”

The 26-year-old beauty also says she would like to have children at some point but is too busy concentrating on her career at the moment.

She added to Harper’s Bazaar magazine: “I think when you make a decision to have a family and children, everything else comes second. But if I choose to have a family, I would hope to create a balance, because I don’t want to lose my sense of identity, my career, and my independence. Why can’t I have both? Why can’t I have everything? So many women do it.”
