Soon after crossing paths with Deborah, he made her his wife by tying the knot in the year 1984 and leading a happy married life together. The couple welcomed their two daughters, Jessica and Olivia, together.
Joe was more intrigued in pleasing his wife and spending time with his daughters than making a fortune out of football at the time.
But after the easy-going life the duo shared, the two ended their ties with a rough divorce. Their split was partly due to Deborah’s issue with how the relationship was going and partially because Joe had turned into an alcoholic.

"We have two beautiful daughters, but finally I had to tell Joe the marriage wasn't working for me, I was bored. I'm in love with Brian. He's different from Joe. He's very sensitive."

The Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania native reported to the Playboy magazine saying that:
“Not at all. I’ve been going out with a girl named Suzie Storm for a few years and I feel that someday I’m going to marry her. But I’m not ready to get married yet; I don’t think I could be faithful. It’s very idealistic and seldom true, but when you’re married, I think you’re supposed to be married and that’s it — no clowning around.”
At the age of 75, American football has left his brutal episode of devastating divorce, his severe period of depression and failed attempts to escape alcohol behind and has moved ahead with a brighter side to life.
