Openly Gay Robin Cousins Is Married With Partner - Know His Personal Life & Career Details
Robin Cousins, the 1980 Olympic champion, has been married to his husband for over a decade now. He prefers to keep his personal life out of the spotlight and goes to great extents to hide the identity of his partner.
Because of that, no one in public knows the sneaky ice skater’s partner’s identity, along with their married dates and relationship timeline. That being said, in 2012, Dailymail reported that openly gay Cousins pronounced his vows in 2007 in a civil ceremony with his partner.
The report also disclosed that Cousins resided with his partner at their home near Brighton, spending quality private time together.
Speaking to the outlet, the three-time World medalist shared that he was happily married and felt “more content” than he was ever before the marriage. He described:
We’ve been together now for a very happy few years. I’m more content than I’ve ever been.
Since tying the knots, Cousins never misses flaunting his silver wedding band while going out in public. That shows his strong commitment to his gay partner.
Going by the mentioned details, it is clear that commitment and privacy are things Cousins highly regards.
Maybe, that’s why, despite being an active Twitter user, he has not spilled even a single bean around his personal life — suggesting he is extra careful to open up about his married life with his husband and doesn't want his husband to be the media's attention.
Cousins might be secretive about his personal life, but his achievements as a competitive figure skater cannot be hidden. He is the 1980 Olympic champion, a three-time World medalist, the 1980 European champion, and a four-time British national champion.
He has also earned fame with his appearance as the head judge on ITV’s dance show Dancing on Ice.
Born on August 17, 1957, Cousins is the son of Jo, a secretary, and Fred, a civil servant, and was raised alongside two older brothers Martin and Nick. His father was a professional soccer player, playing goalkeeper for Millwall F.C.
The first time he ever graced his feet on the ice was at the age of nine at Westover Road Ice Rink during a holiday in Bournemouth. He enjoyed the experience and requested lessons for Christmas eighteen months later.

Robin, age 63, trained in ice dancing simultaneously as a young skater, and his first coach was a dancer named Ms. Pamela Davies. He even left school to focus on figure skating at the age of sixteen.
And it wasn’t long before the skater won his first national title at the ‘novice’ level at the age of twelve in 1969. By the age of fourteen, Cousins was already Britain’s junior champion, and he soon made his international debut.
After representing the UK as an amateur figure skater for eight long years, he turned professional in 1980 and went to win the World Professional Men’s Figure Skating Championships twice. Let’s not forget to mention that Cousins was a World Professional singles medalist four times in 1986, 1990, 1991, and 1992.

The appeal of the sport brings a massive amount of wealth to the athletes, so there’s no doubt that Robin carries a net worth of millions. But that detail is also kept under the wraps by the former competitive figure skater.
