After four marriages that ended in divorce, Jane Seymour doesn’t have saying "I do" again on her mind despite being happy in her relationship with John Zambetti.

“All I know is that right now, I am very happy,” the Harry Wild star, 73, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I'm happier than I remember being for as long as I can remember. My family's happy, everyone's happy, and I don't want to mess with happy. So, for right now, where I'm at is really good.”

Seymour and Zambetti, an ER doctor, connected at a Shwayze concert and realized that their sons knew each other.

The British actress says that what she looks for in a relationship has changed over time.

“When you're younger, you're looking for hot romance, and then you're looking for a possible baby father, and then you are possibly divorced, so you're now looking for another one or one that can tolerate the first two babies,” Seymour explains. “And then you decide, ‘We'll have more babies.’ I think I'm out of that thing.”

Today, Seymour says she wants “a partner that isn't doing exactly the same as me, doesn't need me for any of that, that is very intelligent, very creative, well-read, compassionate [and] a good human being.”

She also finds Zambetti being a doctor is “very handy because people always suddenly cut themselves or hurt themselves or get a diagnosis they can't understand, and he's very useful.”

In her previous marriages, Seymour feels that she “gave up my power.”

“And it was ridiculous because I was the one earning the money in every case,” she continues. “I was the one making the decisions. Well, they made all the financial decisions. That was the mistake.”

Seymour’s second husband, businessman David Flynn, left her $9 million in debt after the split, hence why she signed on for Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. “Every time something bad happened, something even better came out of it,” Seymour says.

The Emmy winner wants women to recognize their power at all ages.

“There's almost an invisible sell-by date,” she says. “It's like, 'OK, well, you're not making babies and your husband probably left you by now for a younger woman. Your kids have probably left the house now to go to college. Now what? I'd like to see women move the dial.'"

Seymour says she feels “very open to new ideas and new challenges,” like starring in Acorn TV’s crime series Harry Wild.

“Apart from Hacks, I'm the only woman my age who has her own show. That would never happen normally back in the day,” she adds. “I don't think that Acorn would be making a third season of Harry Wild if people weren't interested in this ridiculously crazy old lady [who] decides to be a detective and an action hero and comedian all at once.”

The former Bond girl doesn’t see herself retiring anytime soon, either.

“I can't even imagine it,” Seymour says. “I have a lot of energy. I live in now, not yesterday. And I know what I value: I value family. I value real friends. I value health. I value being creatively stimulated and I value running a nonprofit where we can at least do something to help people less fortunate. I think the key to happiness and longevity is live in the moment and find your purpose.”
