Speaking to RTE about his fiance in 2017 and his preference to keep his life private, Mark said: "He's quite a private guy, he stays away from the limelight. He's a really fun guy but he's not in the music or entertainment scene but he doesn't like the red carpet." Speaking about his plans for marriage, Mark continued: "I'm a traditionalist at heart and it's always gonna be one of my dreams in the future to get married – but both of us are very laid back on that front. Sometimes people base everything on getting married but we're happy as we are at the moment with the way things are going. There's no pressure on that at the moment."
