Now that we are all living in a post-Brangelina world, Goldie Hawn is throwing out some advice to couples everywhere.

The 70-year-old actress shared her secret to lasting love during an episode of UK's ITV Loose Women on Monday, stating that if she had wed her partner of 33 years, Kurt Russell, she would be "long divorced" by now.

"Marriage is an interesting sociological thing. If you need to be bound to someone, then it's important to be married," Hawn said while sitting front and center on the show's panel. "If you have independence, if you have enough money and enough sense of independence and you like your independence, there is something psychological about not being married because it gives you the freedom to make decisions."

"In a healthy, longer-term relationship, I would say it's great to be together about 68% of the time," she added about how much time to spend with your significant other.

Of course, fellow Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were aboard the not-married train up until two years ago when they decided to say " I do" after nearly a decade together and six children.

"We made this declaration some time ago that we weren't going to do it till everyone can. But I don't think we'll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment," Pitt told The Hollywood Reporter in 2012 about why they finally were going to tie the knot.

Jolie shocked fans of the high-profile couple last week when she filed for divorce from her husband citing irreconcilable differences.

Since then, reports surfaced that Pitt was being accused of alleged child abuse when an altercation broke out on the famous family's private plane involving Jolie and Pitt's oldest son, Maddox.

A source told ET last week it was "totally a child-parent disagreement," and any reports of inappropriate physical conduct are "exaggerated or untrue."

Despite the drama surrounding the unraveling of the star power pair, ET's source says that Pitt thinks Jolie is "a great mom."

"He will only say positive things about [the] mother [of his children]," the source stated. "He has also made it clear to friends to not say anything negative about her. He continues to hope that there is an amicable resolution in the interest of the kids."
