West is married to his college sweetheart Catherine FitzGerald since 2010. The married couple has four children together. Therefore, when he was sighted kissing and holding hands with the English actress, questions are being raised about his marital status.

Meanwhile, Lily had been in a relationship with actor Matt Smith since 2014. However, due to busy work schedules, the young couple parted ways last December after dating for 5 years.
Since then, the Baby Driver star was rumoured to be with Chris Evans. After she was spotted hanging out with the Captain America actor a few times, media went into a frenzy about this new pairing. But both the actors neither confirmed nor denied the rumours.

Dominic West Painting The Town Red With Lily James
This Sunday, Lily and Dominic were spotted having dinner together with Angharad Wood, their mutual manager, in Rome. Dominic was seen nuzzling into Lily’s cheek as they enjoyed a spot of al fresco lunch. At one point during the lunch, Dominic moved Lily’s hair from her face. If that isn’t an intimate gesture, we don’t know what is.
Lily was dressed casually in a flowing floral dress as she enjoyed the Italian sunshine. The pair then took to the streets on a scooter, which they shared. The Affair actor put his arms around Lily as she checked her phone on their shared scooter.
West And His Wife Displayed A United Front
The married couple did not attempt to explain his now-public grappling with a co-star two decades his junior — neither Lily nor the trip to Rome was mentioned. Catherine clutched a note written by her husband and signed by them both. This she deposited for photographers at the boundary of their property. It read:
‘Our marriage is strong and we’re very much together. Thank you.’

She then put her hand back in her pocket — along with a scrunched-up tissue which she was holding tightly throughout the photo-call. With her left hand thrust deeply into her jeans pocket, she shared a smooch with her husband.
Body language experts interpret this display of reassurance very pained and hesitant. For now, whatever the truth about their marriage is, only the couple knows.
