From 2002 to 2012, Bushnell was married to Charles Askegard, a principal dancer with the New York City Ballet who was ten years her junior, and whom she had met eight weeks before. They decided to divorce in 2011. She found the experience disorienting, telling The Guardian, “When I got divorced, I couldnÕt get a mortgage; I didnÕt fit into a computer model. All of a sudden, I was invited to no more couple things. Being single is hard and thereÕs something a bit heroic about it.” Bushnell is childless, a decision which she lamented in a 2019 interview with The Sunday Times Magazine; she said, “When I got divorced and I was in my 50s, I started to see the impact of not having children and of truly being alone. I do see that people with children have an anchor in a way that people who have no kids don’t.”
