London: She has yet to tie the knot with her partner Brad Pitt, but actress Angelina Jolie has faith in the institution and says "marriage is a lovely thing".
Jolie and partner Brad Pitt have been together since 2005.
"I do think marriage is a lovely thing as I`ve tried it twice before, but we haven`t felt the need to do it yet. We have already made the greatest commitment of having a family together," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
Jolie, who has previously been married to actors Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller, also revealed one of the best things about her relationship with Pitt is the fact they push each other to be a better person.
"We push each other to be better, even if it`s just a better bike rider or better pilot. We`re constantly in competition," she said.
