How many relationships does it take to find true love? Sometimes one is enough. Otherwise one has to keep trying. The love life of the famous Australian-British actor Dominic Haakon Purcell, who stars in Prison Break, has turned out to be no different.
Dominic, who divorced his wife Rebecca Williamson in 2008, became close to Brooke Burns. But they soon split. He then started dating American actress AnnaLynne McCord in 2011.
Dominic started dating Anna in 2011, after the two met each other for the first time on the sets of Officer Down early that year.

This happened a year after he broke up with Brooke, which seems to have hit him hard and sent him on a downward spiral. Dominic and Anna seemed to have a great start with their love life. Well, that is, until problems started appearing in their relationship.

The couple's romantic love journey took a plunge for the worse and three years down the line, and they called it a quit. But this was not the first time the two had parted ways. They had seperated once before, in 2012, but had a patchup soon.

According to a close friend of the actress, the possible reason for the couple's breakup in 2014 was Anna's desire to settle down soon. As he said to the US Weekly:
Though AnnaLynne’s not in a rush to get married, her sisters getting engaged must have made her evaluate her own relationship to some degree,
He further added,
Dominic seemed - more into AnnaLynne than she was into him.
The breakup came as a blow for the actor. But having failed twice, he was not ready to fail again. So the couple reconciled in 2016.
In mid-2016, the couple was rumored to have hooked up again. On June 1, Anna shared a picture of the couple while Dominic was taken to the hospital after the accident on the sets of the movie Prison Break with the caption,
"My #badass muthaf**ker man not worried at all during our 2-hour 'copter ride to be treated following an incident during filming. Won't lie. It was scary AF wondering for hours if his skull was in tact. @northrupchristina giving the watch-care, producer eye. Alas, I'm with a rough'n tough Aussie for a reason. That hard head is good for something! ?? 2 #notdying"

The post came as a proof that they were together again.
In an interview with the Daily Mial, Anna talked about their reconciliation,
I came back into his life as his friend, and I took him to his doctor's appointments. I was there with him because whether or not he knew it, I love him.
Dominic must be lucky to have won her love for the second time. People seldom get two chances in life.

But again, things became complicated in their relationship and the couple ended up separating after a couple of months. They are yet to reveal the reason behind the second breakup.
As per the sources, Dominic is reportedly single again.
The boys are now grown up. Despite failing thrice, we hope Dominic ultimately finds the love of his life.
