Although Winona Ryder has been keeping her love life on the down low, she has been dating eco-friendly fashion designer Scott Mackinlay Hahn, for eight years. The Stranger Things star has dated a long line of celebrated people from Rob Lowe, Christian Slater and Johnny Depp.
Now, the successful actress says that she does not want to get married since she has a very busy life that she is happy with and she also feels that she has a lot to live up to in terms of marriage since her parents have been married for 45 years. Plus, Ryder has had a series of broken engagements that have caused her to not be motivated to marry.

More on Scott Mackinlay Hahn, he is the CEO of Loomstate, a company that produces clothing made from organic cotton. He co-founded Rogan, a clothing line created with the help of U2 lead singer Bono and his wife, Ali Hewston. Hahn enjoys body surfing and forestry as his hobbies. Hahn is a very low-key guy who just wants a nice, down-to-Earth girl to settle down with.
The clothing line mogul is 39 years old, from New York, with an American nationality. Ryder is nine years his senior and she is American with Ashkenazi Jewish heritage. Hahn completed his college studies at the New York School of Design while Ryder studied at the American Conservatory Theater. The two make an artsy couple.
Hahn and Ryder are also a petite couple. Ryder stands at 5’3 while Hahn stands at 5’5. She is in a place where she can rely on her boyfriend Scott Mackinlay Hahn for anything in any situation. Ryder was engaged to Johnny Depp at one point and they called it off when she was just 19 years old. She was also engaged to Matt Damon but that engagement was shortly called off.
Ryder prefers to never experience marriage over getting several divorces. She wants to know that she can rely on her partner without having to tie the knot. Commitment is never easy so maybe Ryder has a point in saying that she would rather just be with someone.
The beautiful starlet has discussed having children with her environmentally aware boyfriend but the two of them are uncertain that Ryder can bare children, so they have discussed alternative methods like adoption or surrogacy. Ryder is proud of her career and at the same time, she would not do anything to damage that.
What is interesting about Hahn is that he is simply an ordinary guy. Aside from making clothes and perhaps drawing, he does not have any special talents or celebrity status. Some people may like dating big movie stars and rock stars but Ryder clearly prefers to date someone more sensible, someone who has a business for themselves but isn’t anything over the top.
A Not So Married Life
Just because somebody isn’t married, that doesn’t mean they can’t have fulfilling intimacy, financial security and happiness. Ryder and Hahn work a ton, they love what they do and they don’t want to look back. According to PEW Research Center, 1 in 5 adults over the age of 25 have never been married.
As a fun fact, the career-powered beauty had a real wedding with Keanu Reeves on set of Dracula in 1992. A priest married the two off in a Romanian church during a scene where their two characters were getting married. To this day, Ryder believes that they may still be married. Ryder is surely glad that the wedding was mostly fictional! Reeves does not take the wedding very seriously either. Ryder and Hahn are bound to live a happy life together that is based on love, trust, and privacy from the media.
