They may have been dating steadily for 15 years, but Jon Hamm isn't about to make it official with his director partner Jennifer Westfeldt.
The Mad Men star, who has recently been entangled in a feud with Kim Kardashian, revealed his beliefs - interestingly enough - to the April 2012 issue of Playboy magazine.
The 41-year-old told them categorically that he doesn't believe in marriage and that he has no yearning to be a father.

He told the magazine: 'I don’t have a driving force to have a baby.'
Before adding: 'That said, I’m in a committed relationship, and if it ever came up, I’m not ruling it out.'
But he's even more vehement on the subject of marriage.
'I don’t have a particularly defined example of marriage in my life,' he said.
Before adding: 'My parents got divorced when I was two and never remarried. So it doesn’t mean anything to me.'
He concluded: 'I don’t mean to say that it shouldn’t mean things to other people. I’m not judging it one way or another.
'It’s just my experience. I don’t have that paragon of married life to look at and think, 'Oh yeah, that’s it! That’s what I want!''
Jennifer, who wrote, directed and produced Friends With Kids about the couple's experience of being left out of the reproduction rally, agrees broadly with her partner... though doesn't sound quite so sure.
'I've thought about this a lot lately. I never thought I’d be this age and not have kids,' she told The New York Times.
'I kept feeling like I'd wake up with absolute clarity, and I haven't. And we have a pretty great life together. The chance that we'll regret it doesn't seem like a compelling enough reason to do it. I may wake up tomorrow with that lighting bolt, and I'll have to scramble to make it happen.'
Jon Hamm’s interview with Playboy is in the April 2012 issue, which features Bruno Mars on the cover.
Mad Men returns with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, March 25 at 9pm ET/PT.
