Husband Abandoned Family For Standup Comedy; Children Forgive Their Father
Marcia Harvey was married to actor and comedian Steve Harvey back in 1980. The couple shares two beautiful twins daughter named Brandi and Karli.
The family of five could not sustain for long, as the married couple parted their ways in 1994. The main reason for their divorce was Steve's passion for being a comedian. And thus, he wanted to chase the dream of becoming successful and to make a name for himself.
His decision to be in the entertainment industry did not go well with his wife, and thus he chose his career and passion for his family.
Also, Marcia's husband discussed their divorce on the sets of Family Feud in September 2018. When he was divorcing Marcia, the pastor of the church claimed that the church does not believe in divorce.
Since he had already made his mind to divorce her, she walked out of the pastor's office claiming he was no more the member of the church.

“I’m married, I have twins [Brandi and Karli, now 33]. I’m supposed to provide for them, but I had to take this chance,”
