Christie Brinkley says 'marriage is ridiculous,' she won't be doing it again

If you thought the two years since Christie Brinkley's very public, very bitter divorce from philandering ex-husband Peter Cook had given her time to cool down, you're wrong.

Speaking with UK magazine Stella, the 57-year-old model says she's ruled out marriage for good.

"I can now say unequivocally I would never get married again," says Brinkley, who tied the knot three times before wedding Cook. "There's absolutely no reason to."

It seems that it was her divorce from Cook that really pushed her to the breaking point. "I learned in my divorce that marriage is ridiculous," she says. "You take a vow but you don't get brownie points when you honor your vow and the other person doesn't. The court doesn't recognize that. It's like, 'All right now, let's see how we're going to divvy up the kids.' Well, obviously, the one that didn't break the vows should be the role model, but no."

Fortunately, just because she's no longer a fan of the institution, doesn't mean she's ruled out love completely. Brinkley says when she gets discouraged about finding the right person, she just looks to her parents who are still together and "madly in love."
