Charlie never marries, and is never mentioned to be dating anyone. He works as a dragon keeper at a sanctuary in Romania and is canonically friendly with Hagrid, who teaches Care of Magical Creatures at Hogwarts.
Many fans speculate that Charlie is gay, though J. K. Rowling said in a post-Deathly Hallows documentary that "[she doesn't] think Charlie is gay, just more interested in dragons than women." Melannen has interpreted this to mean that he is asexual; however there is very limited fanfiction exploring this possibility.
His career is popular with fans; fanfiction often has him working with dragons, and fan art often pictures him with one or more dragons; he's often depicted with a tattoo of a dragon. His location in Romania through most of the novels has the disadvantage of restricting canon-compliant possibilities for interaction with other characters. Perhaps because of this, an unusually high proportion of works feature original characters.
Popular Charlie pairings include:
- Charlie/Bill (Weasleycest)
He's also sometimes paired with both male & female original characters.

- General fanon consensus is that "Charlie" is short for "Charles", though this has not been confirmed by the books or by J. K. Rowling. Some point to an image from Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter that shows a label reading "Weasley, Charles", but this is not universally considered canon.
