Divorce nowadays happen due to the smallest of reasons. But let us take a look at a couple who have fought through some serious nightmares together and are still married.
Fox Network anchor Neil Cavuto and his wife Mary Fulling have been married for over 24 years now. Their life hasn’t exactly been a fairy tale ride but they are constantly striving to have a “happily ever after” even with all their difficulties.
On 15 October 1983, Cavuto married Mary in a ceremony with close acquaintances. Mary had known about her husband’s declining health from the very beginning because Neil was diagnosed with his diseases long before he started dating Fulling.
His first symptoms reportedly began surfacing back in 1977. But Mary was determined to stick by his side and overcome all hurdles together.
This happy couple has three children together. Their daughter, Tara, is their child by birth. Their two sons, Jeremy and Bradley, were adopted by this loving family.
Cavuto has revealed in many of his interviews that being the Senior Vice President, an anchor and Managing Editor for Fox News takes up much of his time due to which he has been finding it difficult to manage between his work and family. He regrets missing out on important events of his children’s life.
Neil Cavuto fought a battle with cancer and came out victorious. With all those painful therapies of chemo and radiation for so long, he was starting to lose faith. He ultimately defeated his cancer. But a few years down the lane, he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Cancer was curable for his stage, but MS is an incurable nervous system disease. Cavuto had to learn to live with this nightmare for the rest of his life.

Cavuto had once revealed that due to his MS, he sometimes has difficulties in his job. There are times when Cavuto, while interviewing someone, has a blur vision and he forgets who is sitting in front of him. He has tried coping with such ailments on his own and accepted his illness gracefully.
And his fight would be a lot more difficult if he hadn’t had his wife and family by his side.
