For both of them, it is their second marriage. Connie divorced actor Gil Gerad in 1987 and John did the split with actress Julie Wright in 1991. They have learned some lessons from the failure of first marriage and now don’t wish to repeat the same mistakes again. Connie expresses this as,

 “We both came from bad marriages and didn’t want to make that mistake again,” 

Connie further puts in,

“Some people are probably disgusted by our image, but if they came over to our house, they’d see we have to work things out like everyone else.” 

 “Our house is falling apart from the earthquake,” says Sellecca, “and we have an epileptic dalmatian who takes 19 pills a day.”

From her above statement what is evident is marriage for them is also not a piece of cake. They also have to go through various ups and downs of the wedding. But despite the imperfectness of the marriage, still, they try to be with each other and show to the world that they are happily married.
