Molly’s Personal Life: Ex-Husband, Divorce, And Children
Molly was in an unconventional relationship with director Matt Bissonette. The couple had been married for a long time but lived separately halfway through their marriage.
Molly and Matt tied the knot in 2002. And their marriage was seemingly going well till 2006; she gave birth to their son - William Strummer Bissonette - on 13th October 2006 in Los Angeles.

However, things went south after the birth of their son. After three years since William was born, in 2009, the couple started living separately. It was as if they agreed upon a divorce even before their divorce reached the courts.
And it took Matt seven years after living separately to file for divorce with Molly. Molly’s husband filed for divorce in October 2016. He stated in the divorce documents that ‘irreconcilable differences’ was the reason for their split, and also filed for joint custody of William.

The House of Cards actress said the following during a 2018 interview with The Globe and Mail:
When my boyfriend really wants to bug me, he calls me ‘House of Cards Molly Parker.'
While it isn’t clear whether she is still with her boyfriend or is single now, Molly has surely put her marriage in the past.
