Does Sam Heughan have a wife or girlfriend?
Sam Heughan is not married, and it’s believed he is currently single.

He told The Inquirer: “Relationships are hard when you’re working in Scotland 10 months a year.
“I travel a lot and any downtime I have, I’m trying to do other projects, so very much, my career comes first.”
However, there’s always the great bromance between Heughan and his former Outlander co-star Graham McTavish.
