'I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it's a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing. I don't think it's natural to be a monogamous person.

'I might be skewered for that, but I think it's work. It's a lot of work. And the fact that it is such work for so many people-for everyone-the fact of that proves that it is not a natural thing.

'It's something I have a lot of respect for and have participated in, but I think it definitely goes against some instinct to look beyond.'

Scarlett and Romain, a French journalist, have been living apart since last summer, according to People magazine.

However, they are still on friendly terms and have been pictured spending time together.

The pair first stared dating in October 2012 and married in 2014.
