Ricky Gervais has been dating his girlfriend, Jane Fallon for over 30 years. When asked why they haven’t gotten married, Gervais responded, “There’s no point in us having an actual ceremony before the eyes of God because there is no God.”
Well, that’s one way of looking at the world. Ricky and Jane also don’t have any children because they “didn’t fancy dedicating 16 years of our lives. And there are too many children, of course.”

Drew Carey has never been married. He was engaged to his longtime girlfriend Nicole Jaracz, but the couple split up in 2012. While they were together, Carey was a father figure to Nicole Jaracz’s son, Connor, from a previous relationship.
There may be wedding bells in Drew’s future, though. Carey announced his engagement to therapist Amie Harwick in January 2018. Drew is over 60 years old, but I guess it’s never too late to find love.

Before his death in early 2016, Alan Rickman had been living with his girlfriend, Labour party councilor Rima Horton, since 1977, but they never got married. At least, they never told the public they got married until right before Rickman’s death. They married in a private ceremony and kept the news to themselves.
They were together since 1965 when they were 18 and 19. This is truly the most tragic love story I’ve ever heard.

Hugh Grant got married in almost every romcom he was ever in, but he never took the leap in real life. He was in a 13-year relationship with model and actress Elizabeth Hurley. He’s still the godfather of Hurley’s child even though he cheated on Hurley multiple times.
Grant has a child of his own with Tinglan Hong, a woman with whom he reportedly had a brief affair. Then he had a child with a Swedish television producer. Followed by another child with Tinglan Hong. Then he had two more children with the Swedish producer (Anna Eberstein). Anna and Hugh got engaged in May 2018 and reportedly got married later that month, so it took him a while, but he did eventually get married.

He began dating Spanish actress Elsa Pataky in 2006, and the couple lived together in a gorgeous home until 2009 when they went their separate ways.

Winona Ryder has never been married, but she was engaged to Johnny Depp in 1990. Ryder also dated Soul Asylum frontman Dave Pirner as well as actor Matt Damon. Even though Winona’s been through quite a few rocky relationships, she’s been with her current partner, Scott Mackinlay Hahn since 2011.
I know a lot of you still ship Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp, but that is so over. Plus you only really ship her with a young Johnny Depp, not a present-day Johnny Depp.
