"I finally found someone who can put up with me full time," Rome said

"It will be the first time since I've been in radio that I've taken two weeks off," Rome added.

He and his wife did go on a two-week honeymoon to Europe in August of 1997.

Both couples seem to be happy with each other, and there are no any rumors about couple's divorce on the internet. The couple has two sons: Jake Rome and Janet Rome.

"Have you stopped beating your wife yet?" NBA Commissioner David Stern asked this question to sports talk radio personality Jim Rome during a heated interview on Rome's radio program in 2012.

"Have you stopped beating your wife yet?" Stern asked.

"Yeah, I don't know if that's fair," Rome responded. "I don't know that that's fair."

Now, there's an essential logic hidden in the question. Stern, on the other hand, wasn't asking if Rome had stopped beating his wife, but he was evoking a logic game, a linguistic move which was intended to put your opponent i.e. Rome in an indefensible position. Moreover, he was trying to make a point out of Rome’s stupid questions.

Devastated by the loss of his horse!

Jim Rome and Janet Rome both are active in the horse racing industry. Moreover, they own a stake in several horses.

It was December of 2015 which marked the demise of top racehorse Shared Belief and co-owner Jim Rome opted to stay in the Thoroughbred ownership business although he was devastated and marked the day as "truly one of the saddest days of my life, honestly."

“Obviously, we are devastated. Just devastated," Rome said. "Shared Belief was a once-in-a-lifetime horse...He was a freakish talent and a horse that was ranked No. 1 in the world last year before he got hurt. More than any of that, more than any of the wins, any of those stats, what I'm always going to remember most about him was what a fierce warrior he was.”
