Even after so many years of marriage, the couple seems to do better and stronger. So, who is Marjorie Harvey, and what does she do?
Here’s everything to know about the lady love of Steve Harvey.
Who is Marjorie Harvey?
Marjorie grew up in Memphis, Tennessee. She is a fashion designer and blogger who leads a non-profit youth organization.
She is known for her elegance and beauty as the owner of the fashion and lifestyle website, The Lady Loves Couture. The lady started her brand in 2014. Many brands and designers seek her to sport their latest runway looks and bring beautiful and stylish pieces to the market.
The Most Memorable First Meeting
How many couples cherish the moment they first met their partner? The story of this couple’s first meeting is the most beautiful thing you will read today.
It begins back in 1990. At that time, Steve was doing his stand-up gigs at a comedy club in Memphis. One night, Marjorie came to watch him perform. She showed up late for the event. While making her way to the seat in the front row, Steve stopped his performance and started staring at her. Marjorie thought the comedian would give her the business on why she was so late for the show. On the contrary, Steve stood silently and kept looking at the lady.
He then blurted out in front of the crowd, “I am sorry, I do not know who this is, but I am going to marry her”.
He was right, but it would not happen for a while yet. Both of them found an instant connection with each other. But at that time, Steve was still married. Marjorie once mentioned how he disappeared out of the blue after their meeting. To this Steve said, when Marjorie first came into his life, he was not properly settled with his career or finances.
The couple was destined to meet again as fate brought them back together in 2005. This time, Steve’s second marriage had ended, and his run on the popular sitcom, The Steve Harvey Show, was also over. Steve and Marjorie dated for two years. He finally fulfilled his promise of marrying his lady love. The couple diet the knot on the 25th of June, 2007.
It Was Not Marjorie’s First Marriage
Steve Harvey is not the first husband of Marjorie. She married twice and had three children before settling down with the comedian.
Her first marriage took place in the late 1990s with Jim Townsend. Following his criminal records, the woman cut all ties with him and divorced him while he was serving five years of imprisonment.
Her second husband, Darnell Woods, became the father of her three children. Darnell was nothing less than a mystery. The information about her second marriage is limited, and the woman also remained silent on the topic.
Harvey, too, married twice before tying the knot with Marjorie. He has seven children: two daughters and one son from his first marriage; and a son from his second marriage.
