Getting married may be simple but staying in the marriage is not as simple as it looks. It needs a real courage to sacrifice and compromise, which is most needed, in order to create a happy marital relationship.
In some cases, things don't work out for the couple and they opt for a divorce. When things get out of control and you feel you are not with the person with whom you can spend rest of your life then end of the relationship is a near future.
Today we are going to talk about the similar American personality Steve Harvey who has not one, but two unsuccessful marriages. After two divorces with his wives namely Marcia Harvey and Mary Lee Harvey, Steve is living a happy married life with his third wife Marjorie Bridges-Woods.
Let's dig in to know about her personal life. Just stay with us.
Steve Harvey first married Marcia Harvey. They got married in 1980 but their relationship didn't last forever and after 14 years of their marriage, they got divorced. No much information about his first wife is mentioned.
After a couple of years of his divorce with Marcia, the now 60-year-old actor as well as a stand-up comedian, Steve Harvey tied the knot with his second wife Mary Lee Harvey. Their wedding ceremony was conducted in 1996 in front of over 200 guests including some renowned Hollywood celebrities.

Everything was going perfectly but, unfortunately, their marital relationship later ended in a divorce. The divorce papers of the 17-year long relationship were finalized in 2005. Because of the contract in assets, Steve had to follow some legal process. Mary Lee was given three of Harvey's homes and $40000 amount per month until 2009.
