The Good Place star, 38, married the 43-year-old actor and comedian in 2013 and they have two children.
She told the ladies of The View: ‘I think that the one thing that marriages don’t have anymore is honesty.’
‘We’re playing this sort of Ken and Barbie game, like, ‘These are the rules and they should be applicable to everyone.’ I just don’t think that they always work for everyone,’ she said.
Kristen said that being open about being attracted to other people and not succumbing to jealousy or insecurity is key.
‘I also personally believe that attractiveness coming from your partner towards someone, the idea of being offended by that, it’s not really about your partner,’ the actress added. ‘It’s about your narcissism. And you need to identify that you’re questioning, ‘Why am I not good enough?’’

It’s also recently been announced that Kristen’s Veronica Mars TV series is being brought back and revived by Hulu.
And in an interview Wednesday with Entertainment Weekly Radio on SiriusXM, the star cautioned longtime fans that the revived show will be ‘a little bit different’ from the original.
‘It’s going to be a much darker world,’ she said. ‘It’s going to be a bigger world. It’s definitely not going to be what we did on UPN or The CW, so i want to brace fans for that.’
As for her decision to reprise the role of the female sleuth, she insisted it was a no brainer.
‘I had this lucky opportunity to play a girl that meant something to people. Why on earth would I want to close that chapter, especially if I feel like there’s more to say with her?’ Kristen explained.
‘As long as we feel there’s a hunger for Veronica Mars and the world still needs to see her fight the good fight… i think more than ever that’s .. topical and I think people are going to watch it,’ she added.
