Is Nathan Fielder Married to a Wife Now? Why did He Divorce Ex-wife Sarah?
Comedian Nathan Fielder created the docu-reality series titled Nathan For You, where he based the self-named character on his teenage self.
Fielder has shared about exaggerating parts of himself for the sake of comedy. However, he has also said that the character is still primarily himself, just that much of the focus had been placed on the insecurities and vulnerabilities of his younger self.
Here’s what the famous comedian and actor Seth Rogan has to say about him,
Nathan is willing to let things get more excruciatingly awkward than most people have a tolerance for. More than almost any performer I’ve ever seen, he is willing to just sit there and do nothing for a long time, to the point that the people he’s interacting with are forced to reveal themselves because the silence is excruciating. I think it’s not something everyone has the stomach for.
And even though Fielder has shown no hesitation in sharing about himself and the eccentric aspects of his personality through his characters and his rebellious comedy style, the comedian occasionally publicly speaks a little about his personal life.
Since 2022, Fielder has taken a bigger challenge on HBO’s The Rehearsal, assisting people to overcome difficult conversations through a devised social experiment involving rehearsals, sets, actors, and scenarios designed to simulate reality.
This article aims to answer fans’ queries regarding Fielder, such as, “Is Nathan Fielder dating anyone?” and “Is Nathan Fielder married?” Many have been curious to know about Fielder’s relationship status and personal life as they see him as someone trying to assist people in overcoming issues in their personal and professional zones.
In 2022, Nathan said he was living with “someone”
In a July interview with New York magazine, Fielder revealed that he was “really happy” living with his partner. He, however, didn’t disclose his partner’s name or relationship nature.
In the same interview, he disclosed more info on his separation from his ex-wife Sarah Ziolkowska. He revealed that they had married in 2011 and later separated in 2014 during the filming of the second season of Nathan For You.
“I was like, Wow, I’m so bad at life,” he said. He was emotionally broken because of the separation and had to see a therapist to understand his nervousness about sharing his feelings.
In 2017, Nathan was dating someone, but his girlfriend's name remained unrevealed
It has been confirmed that he was dating an unidentified woman in 2017.
When asked in a Rolling Stone interview regarding the relationship back then, he refused to speak much about it and decided to keep it a secret, only stating that he was “dating someone” and insisting that he was “not going to talk more about it.”
When did Nathan Fielder and his ex-wife Sarah Ziolkowska get married?
As Fielder has occasionally spoken about his personal life, very little is known about him besides his professional career. According to Celebritynetworth, Fielders’ net worth as of writing is $4 million.
The comedian was previously married to a woman named Sarah Ziolkowska during the initial days of Nathan For You. The news of his marriage to Ziolkowska was confusing to many fans as his projected persona on Nathan For You was that of a single man lacking confidence around women.
In the first episode of the series, he talks to a pizza delivery employee about how “nice guys finish last.” Similarly, in the Bachelor spoof episode titled The Hunk, Fielder deems himself “immature and underdeveloped” in the dating game.
“Every girl I liked growing up rejected me,” he said in the episode. “And because of that, I’ve grown into a man who is chronically nervous around women.”
Fielder later cleared to The A.V. Club that the persona in the Nathan For You was largely exaggerated for the sake of comedy but insisted that it also focused on the “vulnerabilities and insecurities” faced by his younger self.
