For quite a few years, Marjorie and Steve Harvey’s marriage has been the subject of interest to quite a number of people. Even though the pair went on record to say that they were happy with each other, the internet hasn’t left them alone. In 2019, it was rumored that Steve was preparing for divorce from Marjorie. The tabloid even went on to say that Steve had learned his lesson from his second-marriage and was trying to sell the properties in his wive’s name. But as the pair later revealed, nothing could be farther than the truth. Steve and Marjorie are still in love and have not thought of getting a divorce. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Marjorie Bridges Woods.
Marjorie Bridges Woods was born on the 10th of October, 1964. Born and raised in the United States, Marjorie was raised by her mother, Doris Bridges, and her father. As far as her education goes, Marjorie did finish high school but decided against going to college. Even though she did enroll at the University of Memphis at a later date, she never finished college and dropped out.
Much of Marjorie’s professional life has been shadowed by her husband’s fame. Back in the day, Marjorie was interested in fashion and wanted to make a name for herself. After much struggles in the industry, Marjorie started The Lady Loves Couture in 2014. The blog documented details on Marjorie’s life and also provided tips on traveling, healthy food, lifestyle, and high fashion. Marjorie also owns the clothing line Marjorie Harvey’s Closet and also has a line of bags.
Marjorie and Steve first met in 1990. During the time, Steve was doing a comedy show at a club in Memphis, Tennessee. Marjorie turned up late to one of his shows and seeing her enter Steve just stood on the stage simply looking at Marjorie. Thinking that Harvey was gonna give her the talk, Marjorie simply stood there. After a couple of seconds, Harvey simply said,
“I’m sorry, I don’t know who this is, but I’m going to marry her.”
However, during the time, Steve was still married to Mary Shackelford and had yet to reach a comfortable place with his career and finances. So, Steve disappeared from Marjorie’s life for a while, before coming back to her in 2005. Steve had just wrapped up his time on The Steve Harvey Show and had gotten divorced for a second time. Finally the pair dated for two years and decided to tie the knot on June 25, 2005.
Prior to her marriage to Steve, Marjorie was married to the ex-drug lord, Jim Townsend. The pair had three children, Lori, Jason, and Morgan. On the other hand, Steve had four children from his two previous marriages, Karli, Brandi, Broderick Jr., and Wynton, 22. Following their marriage, Marjorie revealed that blending in the two families was quite difficult. While Steve simply told his kids to deal with it, Marjorie took on a more motherly role.
“When you’re dealing with a blended family, everyone is coming from a place of broken. We knew this was right. But I just told them, ‘Everyone is included. Everyone has access to their parents. Whatever you didn’t have before, don’t let that interfere with what you can have now.”
Marjorie’s word struck a chord with the children and the family is now closer than ever. Even though the family has been plagued by rumors of divorce, Marjorie and Steve remain the same light-hearted couple that they have been to date.
