"He’s having difficulty getting on the breast, which is not typical of a Harrington male at all!"

Although they were together with each other for a long time, Richard and Nerys didn't get married to each other. Instead, the pair split without disclosing any particular reason.

After the split, all the bad things seem to have befallen upon him at the same time as the actor opened about his troubled personal life which indeed helped intensify his performances.

 “My mother died just before I started filming that series and I don’t think I’d processed it – it would hit me like a thunderbolt.”

Additionally, the 43-year-old actor explained that losing a mother and at the same time splitting with the partner was the moment he did not want to go to work. It was the worst feeling for him that ever happened in his life. As per Richard,

“Also, I was away from my children and had split from my partner, and I wouldn’t be much of an actor if I didn’t feel those things."  

After his split from the partner he hasn't been romantically linked with anyone thus, he is deemed to be single. The chances of him dating in secret remain a possibility, but it is sure that he hasn't exchanged wedding vows and is possibly remains on a hunt for a wife.
