Their romance saga started back in 1990. At the time, Steve was doing a show at a comedy club in Memphis, Tennessee. Eventually, Majorie also went to watch his show. While she was making her way to the seat, Steve stopped the show and stared at Majorie. The moment he saw her, it was love at first sight for Steve. In an interview, Harvey revealed about their first meeting and commented:

“From the moment I saw you when you walked into that comedy club that night, and the first thing I said to you ever was ‘I don’t know who you are, lady. But I’m gonna marry you one day.”

But, Steve wasn’t available at that time. He was still married. But, they couldn’t stop their feelings and started dating after a few meetings. Like most relationships, their love story wasn’t obstacle-free. Harvey was neither settled in her career or was financially settled. Therefore he opted to disappear from Majorie’s life. The fashion module shared her side of the story as:

I knew he was the one shortly after I started dating him but he the just left…disappeared.

Eventually, the duo again reconciled their relationship in 2005. By that time, Steve had ended his second marriage with Mary Lee Harvey.  After dating for two years,  Marjorie and Steve got married in a private ceremony.

They said the third time is the charm. It turned out to be true for Steve as he got his soulmate in the third go. Marjorie and Steve got hitched on June 25, 2017. Their relationship has proved age is just a number as Majorie is eight years older than Steve. After getting married to Elaine, Steve feels like being reborn. The duo dated for years before getting married. Regarding the same, in an interview with Essence  Marjorie told:

“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 was just 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 wat. Obviously, it wasn’t the perfect timing or it would have happened.

Who before Steve?

Before she hooked up with Steve, Marjorie was already married to two different guys just like the comedian. She was first married to Jimmy L.Townsend who was 23 years older than him. The duo shared a happy relationship until it was found that he was a Memphis drug dealer. As Jimmy was sentenced for lifetime imprisonment after finding guilty, she filed a divorce and moved on.

Later on, she again got married to Daniel Woods, one of the famous infamous drug Woods brothers. The couple had three children: Jason, Lori, and Morgan from their courtship. Unfortunately, the second time also didn’t work for Marjorie. Daniel was also charged for drug cases and all of his property and club were frozen. Marjorie sold the club to Todd day, a famous NBA player, and moved on.

Both marriages ended for good as she finally found her true love, Steve Harvey, in the third go. Likewise, Steve was also married to Marcia Harvey and Mary Lee Harvey before he got married to Marjorie.

Today Marjorie and  Steve are living happily with their blended family raising seven kids together from their previous relationships.
