Well, it has been more than 2 years since Rory's second wife Joey died but Rory still feels for her. The $3 million worth American singer could have moved on, but his deep love for his late wife Joey still makes him unmarried.
As reported, Rory after the departure of Rory is not dating anyone and is engaged in spending time with his children.
In June 2018, in an interview with CBS, Rory Lee Feek talked about his love for his late wife as:
I feel just as married and just as in love. I feel like she’s just as much a part of our life as she was.
He also explored about returning to the stage without his longtime Joey + Rory partner.
It is surreal and strange, a little wrong in some ways. But on the other side of it, it felt strangely familiar.
Really, Rory Lee Feek has not moved on with his memories with his late partner. Also, he has not hinted on his third marriage.
Love remains alive, either be it in person or in memories!
Rory Lee Feek married Tamara Gilmer on August 3, 1985, after they dated each other for few months. The couples even share two adorable daughters.
Their first daughter, Heidi Feek was born in 1986 and second daughter, Hopie Feek in 1998.
Rory and Tamara could not hold on to their marriage and in 1992 the couple got officially divorced.
As reported, Rory's daughter Hopie Feek is a lesbian and is now engaged to her girlfriend Wendy.
Rory tied the knot for the second time with Joey.
In 2001, Joey saw Rory for the first time in Nashville when he was singing “in the round” and she was fascinated by his performance. Just after their first meet, Joey made up her mind to marry him someday.
Joey started dating Rory after she found out that he is a divorced man and is the father of two daughters. The couple dated for few months and decided to tie the knot. Rory and Joey got married on June 15, 2002.
CAPTION: Joey and Rory marriage
Rory and Joey decided to work together and they formed an American country and bluegrass duo band, Joey + Rory in 2008.
On 17th February 2014, the couple gave birth to a cute baby girl, Indiana Boon who was born with Down syndrome.
Joey was diagnosed with cervical cancer in May 2014 three months after giving birth to Indiana. She was declared cancer free after various surgery and treatment.
But again after a year, cancer had returned as metastatic cervical cancer-causing more damage to her body.j
Even after many surgery and chemo, Joey was not able to win the battle with cancer. When the cancer was aggressively spreading and she had no treatment option, the couple decided to spend their last days together.
Joey faced lots of difficulties after suffering from cancer but, Rory and their children were very supportive. However, she died on March 4, 2016.
Rory is a very strong man with a very strong willpower. Rory did not marry after the death of Joey and is taking caring of his children by himself. He was and still is a loving father. He has maintained all the responsibilities as a father and we hope he continues to do so.
We wish him best for further.
