After a five-year relationship with Jimmy Kimmel, which was followed by subsequent relationships with writer Alec Sulkin and comedian Kyle Dunnigan, Silverman voiced her thoughts on marriage to Playboy in 2010. 

"I love going to weddings, and I love it when my friends get married," she said at the time. "I'm not against marriage, but it's just not for me. I'm a vegetarian, but I don't have a problem if you want a hamburger. Marriage, to me, is like eating meat. I think it's gross and f–king crazy… If you're getting married today, it's the equivalent of joining a country club that doesn't allow blacks or Jews."
