Marjorie Bridges-Woods' Married Life: Husband, and Divorce!
Who isn’t familiar with Steve Harvey? You might have remembered the time when he made a funny and embarrassing mistake in the most prominent modeling event ‘Miss Universe 2015’. He is also the busiest man on TV hosting three different hit shows, so how did such an unlikely couple meet?
They first came in contact with each other when Steve first saw Marjorie, while she was walking into the ‘Memphis Comedy Club. Steve recalls the moment as "love at first sight." Steve went on stage of Memphis Comedy Club and announced the same night,
"I don't know who you are, but I'm going to marry you."
Later, after a few weeks from the first meeting, Marjorie discovered the moment of clarity about the relationship. Recalling the moment, Marjorie talked to ESSENCE in January 2014 saying,
"I knew he was The One shortly after I started dated him...but then he just left. Disappeared."
Both Marjorie and Steve dated briefly while Harvey was struggling. Steve was with his second wife, Mary Lee at the time while Marjorie was with one of her previous husbands. Though dating for a short time, the duo split up later.
They reconnected in 2005, shortly after Steve’s divorce and picked up right where they couldn’t 15 years ago. So, the two got married two years later on 25th June 2007.
The duo dated for years as revealed by Marjorie in 2010 interview with ESSENCE,
“We were friends. We dated years ago and I think it was the long distance more than anything with Steve and I [that made us go] our separate ways. Nothing happened. He didn’t break my heart. I didn’t break his heart. It just was a long distance relationship and someone would have had to make a decision back then. No one made a move. But it didn’t mean we didn’t care, it’s just sometimes life gets in the way. Obviously, it wasn’t the perfect timing or it would have happened.”
Steve's longtime bodyguard was the one to push Steve to rekindle his romance with Marjorie. Steve explained the information in an interview with PEOPLE in 2016 by stating,
“He told me, ‘Look, the only time I’ve ever seen you happy was when you were with that woman Marjorie. Now before you go and do something stupid and marry another woman, I’m calling her.’”
Marjorie married Steve Harvey on 25 June 2007 and became Steve's third wife.
Sharing the glimpse of duo's love, Marjorie shared an Instagram image of the pair on 24 July 2016 during the Neighbourhood Awards.
Marjorie has three children; Morgan, Jason, and Lori from her previous marriages.
Likewise, Steve has four children from his previous marriage; Wynton born in 1997 from his relationship with Mary Lee, who is a former makeup artist and; twins Karli and Brandi born on 1982 and Broderick Jr. born in 1997 from his past relationship with Marcia Harvey.

However, both Marjorie and Steve have no children of their own, but shares four grandchildren; two from Jason, one from Morgan, and one from Karli. Steve Harvey shares the strong bond with all of his seven children which was also displayed on the show, Steve Harvey. His children gave him the surprise on his birthday which was published on YouTube on 16 January 2015.
Here is a picture of Marjorie with her children who are all grown up.
Up until now Steve and Marjorie had a happy family life, but now there have been rumors of their split. ‘Mediatakeout’ has even reported in January, the first probable sign of the couple’s divorce.

On 24 June 2017, the duo celebrated their 10th marriage anniversary and shared an Instagram image.

She also went on to post a YouTube video where she allegedly claimed that Steve was having an affair with Marjorie before their divorce.

Steve Harvey Skips Trump Inauguration for Marjorie!
When it was revealed that Steve Harvey had a private meeting with President Trump, the black community did not take this action well and considered it as an act of betrayal to the black race by Harvey. Harvey later responded to these accusations on an Instagram post which can be viewed below.
Steve Harvey was then, set to attend Trump's inauguration but had to cancel later because Marjorie said 'No.' He later clarified stating,
“I’ll be turning 60 on Tuesday and my wife is taking me far away, So, I won’t be at anybody’s inauguration because my wife said no."
Maybe it was just because of Harvey's birthday, or it was because of Majorie's whims, nobody knows.
Kids Stirring Controversy; Husband Starts New Venture
Of all her children, Lori is by far the most popular as well as controversial offspring. Once married to a Dutch soccer player named Memphis Depay, Lori recently made the headlines after getting photographed alongside R&B crooner, Trey Songz while still being with rapper Future.
Some of the famous faces to have fallen for her daughter in the industry include musician Meek Mill and Puff Diddy's son, Justin Combs. Surprisingly, neither she nor her husband Steve seem to mind the gossip surrounding her dating life.
There's no denying that the married duo's focus has shifted to raising stream of income over the years as opposed to nurturing their kids. With the establishment of Steve Harvey Deals in February 2019, Marjorie and her husband's dedication to businesses is likely to grow.
