Though the actress arrived solo to all of her press events for her new movie, Snatched, she told Howard Stern on May 3 that she and Hanisch were still dating.

“We are talking about today," she replied when the longtime radio host asked if she and Hanisch were discussing marriage. "I love the idea of committing to someone and making that choice, and I want to have a family, but right now, we are not in talks.”

“It’s good to have a lot of space," Schumer said of the pair's busy schedules.

In an interview with ET last year, Schumer said that Hansich was "totally different" from the guys she used to date.

"I usually would go for narcissists who, you know, could never be happy," the comic shared. "[Ben's] just very supportive and loving and I think we're very proud of each other."

"He is so far removed from this business that it's really nice," she added.
