A post shared by Marjorie Harvey (@marjorie_harvey) on

Marjorie Bridges-Woods and Steve Harvey’s love story seems more like a fairy tale. It was purely love at first sight as the beautiful blogger caught the attention of her future husband during her entrance into one of his performances at a Memphis based comedy club in the year 1990. Having been enchanted by her beauty, Steve Harvey was dumbfounded and couldn’t say a word as he steadily gazed at Marjorie.

He then told his audience that he was going to marry her even though he didn’t know who she was. Interestingly, what seemed like a joke turned into reality in 2007 when the two sealed their love with a nuptial bond. But it wasn’t smooth sailing for the couple prior to that.

After that first encounter in 1990, the lovebirds dated for a while before calling it quits as a result of long-distance and Steve Harvey’s marriage (as he was married to Marcia at the time). But later in 2005, they got back together, thanks to Harvey’s bodyguard who reunited them having seen how they complemented each other at their first meeting. Following their union, the esteemed radio personality has given huge credit to his amazing spouse for his career success and happiness in life.
