Here goes the list:

 Like many celebrities in Hollywood, Veronica owes her popularity to the series of men she has dated.  

1. Jack Nicholson


 Rumour has it that Veronica dated America's greatest homegrown actor Jack Nicholson during the 1980's. Veronica had a fling with the Anger Management star Jack despite the fact that he was in an on-off romance with his long-time lover Angelica Huston. Jack was allegedly sleeping with Veronica, and she didn’t stop it.

2. Richard Gates


Veronica had a brief relationship with actor Richard Gates. They got married in 1968 and continued the marriage for three years. They were divorced in 1972. Later on, Rick married Janie Yuguchi, a special education teacher, in Los Angeles on February 27th, 1982. They have two daughters now.

3. Stanley Goldstein 

Veronica Cartwright and Stanley Goldstein had their wedding on April 4, 1976. The couple had only been married for four years when they got divorced in 1981.

4. Richard Compton 


Right after her divorce with Stanley, she met American actor and Director Richard Compton in the same year. She must have felt like finding a soulmate in him. The couple got married in 1982 and remained together for years. Unfortunately, their marriage ended when Richard died in 2007. They have a son named Dakota.

She has not made it known to the world whether she has dated someone post-Richard death or not.
