As the series' lead, Hamm was one of the highest-paid actors on television. Hamm worked for $20,000 per episode during the first season, in 2007, when the show wasn't the titan, it would grow to be, and Hamm was still a relative unknown.
As the show began gaining traction, however, and Hamm's suave womanizer o-screen persona, Don Draper, became an audience favorite, his salary was increased to $25,000 per episode for the second season.
Hamm's salary was further proliferated to the six digits for the third season, where he made $100,000 per episode, and by the fourth season, Hamm was making $125,000 per episode.

Despite being together for nearly two decades, they never got married. When asked about their relationship, Hamm said:
"We may not have a piece of paper that says we're husband and wife, but after 10 years, Jennifer is more than just a girlfriend. What we have is much deeper and we both know that. To me, people get married when they're ready to have kids, which I'm not ruling out."
