Co-host Marie Osmond tied the knot again with Stephen Craig 26 years after their divorce. Maria Osmond reveals why she remarried her ex-husband Stephen Craig.
Osmond is best known for her part in the Osmond family in the 1960s which led her to a role in the 1970s TV variety program, Donny & Marie. As she rose to fame she fell in love with her husband, Stephen Craig, who she married twice.
The couple met when Osmond was a teenager and Craig was a pro-basketball player. The TV personality married Craig for the first time on June 26, 1982. About a year later the pair welcomed their son named Stephen James Craig.
A few years later, according to reports, Maria found difficulty in managing her personal life and career. Her relationship came to a head in October 1985 when she and Stephen filed for divorce.

The Utah native then reconnected with Stephen again through their son. The couple kept the rekindled relationship a secret during their two years of dating.
“I didn’t want anybody to get hurt, you know if it didn’t work out. And gosh, it just worked out,” she said on the show in 2011. As for their decision to get remarried, the two have their son to thank for that.
Marie Osmond reveals why she remarried Stephen Craig: “Stephen was getting married and we [realized] we can’t go to our son’s wedding and not be married,” Marie told People. “So we got married a few months before he did. He joked that he never thought it would happen, but it did!”
On May 4th, 2011, Marie remarried Stephen in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas. She wore the same dress as their first wedding and made it official. “The thing about a second marriage is that you realize things you thought were so important, aren’t,” she told the outlet. “I love being with my husband. He is the sweetest man I know. He lives to serve and really listens to people’s needs.” Marie Osmond reveals why she remarried Stephen Craig
