Very sad news.

They want to keep matters private. Best wishes to their children most importantly and hoping their can work together to ensure everyone can find happiness.
Jeez. You do wonder whether the enforced time apart while Dimma was in the hub has affected matters there. 😫

Damn that sucks, in a funny way hearing him referring to Mrs.Hardwick was reassuring and a nice humours insight into his home life.

I hope Dimma is okay as well as his family.

Wonder if that explains why he's back at training so early? Maybe the time off was meant to be for himself and his wife to work on things.

Very sad news. Always sounded like Mrs.Hardwick was his rock. She had no problem taking Rioli into their home and even pushed Dimma to pick Marlion for the 2019 GF. And from memory was a big factor in Dimma changing his attitude and being more relaxed heading into 2017. Hope both are doing ok.

there would be no shortage of women wanting to marry hardwick now. the man is a demi god
When enough water has gone under the bridge , Dimma should date a AFLW player so we can get some mother and son draft picks.
I also think Danielle Hardwick should be made a Richmond life member for her contribution to our premiership success .
There has been quite a few players live at their house.

AFL supercoach Damien Hardwick SPLITS with his wife Danielle just days after Collingwood's Nathan Buckley also announced the end of his marriage

Damien Hardwick has become the second AFL coach within days to announce a shock marriage split.
The three-time premiership Richmond Tigers coach has separated from wife Danielle, whom he commonly refers to in media interviews as 'Mrs Hardwick'.
The couple who have two daughters and a son together confirmed the split but are keeping the matter private, the Herald Sun reported.


The shock news comes days after Collingwood Magpies coach Nathan Buckley confirmed he and wife Tania split earlier this year.

Last year, Hardwick revealed how he was convinced by his wife to select Marlion Pickett to make his AFL debut in the 2019 grand final.

'I must admit, she was pushing Marlion harder than anyone,' Hardwick told Channel Nine's AFL Footy Show the day after Pickett's memorable debut in 2019.

'She goes, 'You've just got to play him he's too good'.

'She's been a terrific supporter of mine and behind every man is a great woman and I'm very fortunate.'

In 2018, Hardwick confessed in a pre-match interview with Triple M he had a few sleepless nights following his side loss in Perth.

'It comes from the Mrs Hardwick no win no love,' he quipped.

'I'm a bit flat, boys!'

Hardwick is currently taking an extended break during the AFL off-season until February after steering the Tigers to their third premiership in four seasons in October.

Hardwick played 207 AFL games over 11 seasons between 1994 and 2004, which included premierships with Essendon and Port Adelaide.

The marriage split follows a string of separations in the AFL in recent years, including the Buckleys, Geelong Cats star Gary Rohan and wife Amie, along with Cats champion Jimmy Bartel and his glamourous former wife Nadia.
