Lindsey Vonn has made it clear in the past that she does not intend to walk down the aisle again after her divorce from Thomas Vonn. And now, in a new interview with the Associated Press, she reiterated yet again that marriage is not in the cards for her.

"I'm done with that. The box is checked," she said. "I don't really believe that you need to be married to someone to be their life partner."

Vonn, who is currently dating Tiger Woods, did go on to say that she isn't ruling out having children and starting a family, though she would only do so once she feels ready to step away from skiing.

"I want to make sure that I've done what I want to do in my sport. I don't want to leave skiing early," she said. "I want to feel like I've done everything I can do. So, we'll see."

And although Vonn has made it clear that she won't be marrying Woods, she did compare their relationship to one between a husband and wife in an interview with The New York Times in June.

“We talk golf after his golf rounds, but mostly I listen. We really are normal in that way," she said. "Lots of people go home and talk to their wife or husband about their job. That’s what we do."

Lindsey and Thomas Vonn married in 2007 and announced their split in 2011. Woods and his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, ended their marriage in 2010 after Woods' many infidelities came to light.

Woods and Vonn announced their relationship via a Facebook post in March 2013.
