The Blacklist star, James Spader, was quite young when he married his first wife. He met his ex-spouse, Victoria Kheel, in New York City, in a yoga studio — the couple was dating over a decade before settling down in 1987. They parted ways in 2004, having produced two sons, Sebastian and Elijah.

According to some reports, it was James Spader who filed for divorce from Victoria; however, the cause for the separation is still unknown. The Hollywood actor soon began dating actress and model Leslie Stefanson, whereas Mrs. Spader has been single since then.

Despite their 11-year age gap, the couple has enjoyed their blissful relationship, but surely, we can’t help but wonder why they haven’t tied the knot yet after 18 years of dating. Maybe, he is okay with such a lifestyle, or maybe, he is quite afraid of failed marriage again.
