Just in time for Valentine's Day, Steve and Marjorie Harvey opened up to ESSENCE about their marriage and creating a love that lasts. More inside.....
The February 2014 cover of ESSENCE Magazine features successful host (The Steve Harvey Morning Show; Family Feud; The Steve Harvey Show) and author Steve Harvey and his wife of seven years Marjorie Harvey.
While we've followed Steve and his romantic journey (which includes two ex-wives and a prolonged court battle with ex-Mary Harvey), it seems like THIS time...it's going to last. Because the twosome seem to have all kinds of knowledge on how they'll make it happen.
Inside the issue, the couple dish on creating a love that lasts and Steve opens up about changing his life since meeting Marjorie. He said, "Everything I have...is because of this girl right here."
Inside, they share highlights from their love story:
On meeting at a Memphis comedy club:
Steve said he stood on stage and said, "I don't know who you are but I'm going to marry you." Marjorie's said, "I knew he was The One shortly after I started dated him...but then he just left. Disappeared."
Steve on working on himself BEFORE committing to Marjorie:
"Before a man can be of use to a woman...he's got to know who he is, what he does and how much he's going to make."
Steve on how EVERY great man has a woman:
"Every great man has a woman... I didn't say successful man, I said great man. Yeah, maybe you're successful if you sign a $16 million NBA contract. But greatness is when you're the husband and father you're supposed to be. When everyone surrounding you looks up to you, depends on you, and you come through for them. That's greatness.
Do you think Dr. Martin Luther King was anything without Coretta? You take Michelle out of Barack Obama's equation, and he is a whole other dude out there."
