Relationship with Steve Harvey

Jimmy Townsend was her first husband but he ended up being the wrong man for her. He was arrested on charges related to drugs. Her second husband met the same fate as her first husband. He was sent to jail on drug charges in 2009. It seemed like Marjorie was really bad at finding a mate as both her marriages were ruined by drug use.

Steve and Marjorie have backgrounds that are similar to each other in one way. They both have been unlucky in love since they have both have been divorced twice. She and Steve became husband and wife in June of 2007. Steve has admitted many times that Marjorie is responsible for changing his life and inspiring him to become a better man than he was before.

Steve did not always have the wealthy celebrity lifestyle he currently enjoys. At one point in his life, he was homeless and has admitted to sleeping in his car when he didn’t have enough cash to book a hotel.

When she was first dating Steve, her intention wasn’t to marry him because she didn’t considered him as someone to be her type. Another reason behind her hesitation was that she hated the way his lips looked. Those big lips kissed her many times so she eventually got used to it.

When asked by Essence why she fell for Steve, she said, “I was over the moon for Steve when I first met him, so to trust my heart and go back to the man that I once loved was really easy. With Steve, I could relax because I knew this wasn’t someone that had broken my heart so I could trust him. He knew that he could trust me with his heart and trust is a big thing. It made it a lot easier for he and I to just move past the preliminaries and just to get to know each other again”

She had many challenging times and her life was full of ups and downs. Her story changed after she got married to Steve. Before they tied the knot, their relationship was off and on. They had a deep and complicated history but in the end, they finally got married.  

She had to stick up for Steve when he was humiliated on a national stage. During the crowning of Miss Universe in 2016, he mistakenly announced the runner up to be the actual winner. She stood by his side as people attacked him for his simple mistake.

Marjorie’s tale is an inspiration to women all over the world, especially those who have been divorced more than once and have a desire to find love. She is the type of woman that most men desire because she is a woman that will stand by you regardless of what happens and she will always believe in your abilities.

They have three grandchildren, Noah, Rose and Elle. Marjorie has shown herself to be very supportive of all of her family members.

These two where from his first marriage with Marcia. In his second marriage to Mary Shackelford, he had two more children named Broderick and Wynton. They are also adults and treated with respect by Marjorie.

She had no shortage of kind words when she was asked to describe her life with Steve to Essence, “I wish every woman can find a soulmate like I’ve been blessed to find. This is really my best friend. I can talk to my husband about any and every thing; he can talk to me about any and every thing. We complement each other and we bring out the best in each other so it’s just a beautiful relationship all the way around. We laugh together. I love his sense of humor. For my children, I only wish that my sons, all three of them, can be the man that their father is and for my daughters I wish for them the same thing that I finally found and that’s a man just like my father.”
