They were married for 11 years
After dating for two years, Gaiman and Palmer exchanged vows in a small ceremony in January 2011. However, according to Wired, the pair celebrated an informal marriage in New Orleans in November 2010. At the time, Gaiman’s 50th birthday celebrations included a flash mob wedding, which Amanda is alleged to have planned.
First rumored to be dating in June 2009, the couple made their engagement public in January 2010 when Gaiman posted an official statement on his blog. The couple reportedly talked openly about their open marriage in the beginning of their relationship and continued to do so throughout the years.
In an interview with Den Of The Geek, Palmer reflected on their open relationship and said that while it could cause “difficulty,” it could also forge a “really powerful tie.”
In 2008, Gaiman and Palmer first met
Although it is claimed that the pair started dating in the summer of 2009, they met the year prior. According to a 2013 feature of the pair published by The Guardian, the two first corresponded over email. She replied to Gaiman’s email of admiration for one of Palmer’s songs by expressing gratitude. What follows is history!
Later, Palmer contacted Gaiman to work with him on a project that involved his writing stories to go with Palmer’s images. In a 2019 interview with The Times, the singer also discussed how she and Gaiman met.

She revealed although she knew little about Gaiman, that they had a mutual friend when reflecting on how they had first met. I had heard of him but never read any of his writing. I was just aware that he was a prominent goth and comedy.
She later said that despite leading completely different lives, they got “fascinated” with one another.
