In 1977, Willem Dafoe and theatre director Elizabeth LeCompte became romantically involved, and five years later, she gave birth to a son, Jack. Though the two remained partners for almost three decades, they parted their ways in 2004 and were never married.
The only reason for not getting committed lied in Elizabeth's principles. Dafoe once admitted that marriage meant "ownership" for her, and the two never tied the knot. Willem respected her choice, but later, he became more interested in married life than she was, and so, they separated.
