The actress has now opened up about her feelings towards marriage and its difficulties, which may give further insight into their separation.
Johansson - who was previously been married to actor Ryan Reynolds for two years - continued to admit she believes the fact people view marriage as hard work is proof that "it is not a natural thing".
Already once-divorced Scar Jo (she was married to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011) has always been vocal about her disbelief in monogamy. And after her second divorce she confided in Playboy about marriage saying, "I might be skewered for that, but I think it's work". The actress famously said: "I don't think human beings are monogamous creatures by nature".
"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". "It's a lot of work", she told Playboy.
'I have friends who were together for 10 years and then made a decision to get married, and I'll ask them on their wedding day or right after if it's different, and it always is.
It was reported in January by People magazine that Scarlett and Romain had ended their marriage last summer. She also pointed out that marriage is a lovely responsibility but it doesn't usually work out because despite being a union of two persons, there are other people who try to take part in it even if they don't have anything to do with it. "I don't know. Whatever that is, the thing you can't fully put words to, it changed". I had a baby, and also my husband was coming from another country and becoming a citizen of this country. But I think my husband has embraced America, and NY in particular, in this really endearing way. Since then, she has been juggling life as a mother and as an actress and somehow, eventually she has learned the importance of finding her own happiness. He was making meatballs the other night, actually.
Scarlett and her husband married after having their daughter together in 2014, she said that it changed their relationship. I wasn't home. I was away, and he sent me a picture.
"Or if you say to him/her, 'Hey, (even though) I am doing a very sexy scene with this very sexy girl/boy, I love you and I'm going to be thinking of you when I am rolling around in bed with this person!'" she added. But that does not mean monogamy is unnatural or wrong.
