Is Julian Assange married or dating anyone?

Julian is in a relationship. And getting married on June 3rd, 2017 with Kristi Smith. Kristi's mother, Sue A Smith, stated in an interview. Besides that, no any information regarding his dating life is revealed yet and seems like he wants to live his life being far from rumors. Julian is the chief editor of WikiLeaks and has been involved in some cases such as leaking of sensitive data though there is no evidence that he committed such a crime.

Furthermore, Julian's mother, Christine Ann Hawkins, also said that her son would only get into a relationship until he settles down with the case and gets his life together so it wouldn't affect his family.

Julian Assange was born on 3rd July 1971 in Northern Queensland, Australia. He is currently 44 years old. His mother, Christine Ann Hawkins, was a visual artist and his dad, John Shipton, was an anti-war activist and a builder. However, they separated before Julian was born.
