Washington: Johnny Depp has declared he has no plans to get married to new girlfriend Vanessa Paradis in the near future because he doesn`t think it is necessary.

The ``Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides`` actor has two children, Lily Rose, 11, and nine-year-old Jack, with the French actress.

"We`ve never married and that`s how it is going to stay - for now. As one of our presidents once said, ``If it ain`t broke, don`t fix it.`` We just haven``t done the big public vow thing. It doesn`t seem necessary for us. Others may want to go down that road - we don`t,” Contactmusic quoted Depp as telling America`s OK! Magazine.

Despite his successful acting career, Johnny says his greatest achievement is meeting Vanessa and raising a family with her.
