Who Is Ben Lawson’s Potential Wife?

Lawson is not dating anyone officially and is allegedly single. It pushes away the possibility of him having someone who could be his potential wife in the current scenario.

But some unconvinced fans suppose that the 44-year-old actor is in a relationship with his secret girlfriend. Well, even if it’s true, the claim remains on the cliffhanger until he confirms it himself.

So far, in 2023, nothing significant hint of his romantic life has made the headlines. Instead, Ben remains committed to his on-screen ventures.

Does He Have Plans For Marriage?

It appears that Ben is not ready to settle down anytime soon, but who knows, when those cards may turn upside down & fans get to hear the wedding bells.

In January 2021, he wrote an article for the Sydney Morning Heraldwhere he opened up about his past affairs and ex-girlfriends. Citing his relationship failures, he stated that he values his inner peace.

“I don’t date that much. I’m not scared of commitment, I’m just happy by myself.”

Only time will tell what lies beyond- maybe in the near future, he may find his love of life who may change his perception of happiness. Just a wild guess!!

Ben Lawson’s First Serious Girlfriend: Dating Story!

After being kicked out of the University of Southern Queensland, Lawson, then in his teens, was working at a Brisbane restaurant. There, he would meet Melissa, his first serious girlfriend. 

Even if Melissa had a boyfriend at that time, Ben was “completely in love with her”. But they didn’t get along immediately. After she left for an article clerkship at a London law firm, the two kept exchanging emails for 8 months until he asked to fly over there & meet her.

Then, Ben went to London and confessed his love, and lived with her for 4 months before returning to Australia. Subsequently, he joined NIDA, which meant he could no longer visit her for months.

In an article for the Sydney Morning Herald, he wrote that by the time, Melissa came back to meet him, the spark of their love was no more.

Where Is Lawson’s Ex-Girlfriend, Melissa, Now?

According to Ben, his former flame, Melissa, has a family of her own now, stating that she has “a couple of little kids.”

Ben’s Last Known Girlfriend, Maile, Is From Hawaii

The Netflix series Firefly Lane actor was in a 3-year relationship with his Hawaiian girlfriend, Maile Mildrexler, a tattoo artist. The two met in 2016 when Ben was in Portland, Oregon, shooting for the TV series Grimm. They hit off instantly and even moved together in Los Angeles after Maile’s landlord sold her place.

However, in 2019, the couple broke up. Even after their split, the two are good friends.

Maile has now moved on and is engaged to her fiance Robbie, a tattoo artist and model. Lawson often hangs out with his ex and her lover Robbie.

Ben Lawson And Harriet Dyer Were An Alleged Couple

Even though, neither Ben nor Harriet ever confirmed their relationship, fans were assured that they were a thing. They used to share adorable pictures of them on their social media, which has since been removed.

Some sources claimed that the two remained in a long-distance relationship for a few months in 2015 before they broke up.

In December 2015, the Australian-born actress went to Sydney from California to attend the 5th Annual AACTA Awards. When asked if she also thought of visiting Ben who was in California, Dyer didn’t admit if there was a romantic relationship between them but confirmed that anything they had was over, saying “Nooo, that’s over.”

Lawson Had His First Kiss At Kindergarten

Ben remembers his mother, Diane, once told him how his first kiss was at Kindergarten. He and a girl named Jacqui Cuthbert were found at the side of the sports shed kissing.

When the Australian actor turned 13, the all-boys school attendant had his first ‘open-mouth’ kiss at St. Aidan’s Girls School dance. No denying, it was a big deal for an early teenager.
