The couple met at University College London, where Gervais was studying Philosophy and Fallon was studying History, and they have been together ever since. They moved in together in 1984 and are now located in London’s Hampstead district.

Ricky Gervais once stated that their decision not to marry was solely for the sake of avoiding an official wedding ceremony.

He explained:

We are married in everything but the ceremony. We share everything and everything is in both names. We’ve lived together for 29 years — how are we not married except in the eyes of God?’
