Majors and Fawcett were the two leading stars in the 1970s, and it was way too difficult to keep work and personal life accordingly. The American actor said:

It was hard to get around...Back then we only had to deal with the paparazzi at large. A lot of time you could evade them, but not all the time.

Both Majors and Fawcett were at the highest peak of their acting careers. 

It [the first date] was very quick, and it [marriage] lasted about almost 12 years. But there was a year or so when I think I saw her for two weeks in one year. It's very difficult with careers like that.

Lee Majors and Farrah Fawcett tied the knot in 1973, separated in 1979, and finalized their divorce in 1982. The former couple didn't have any children together within a 6-year marriage.


After three failed marriages, Lee Majors met an American model and actress Faith Cross in 1995. The two got married in 2002, after seven years of being an item.

Faith Cross is 45 years old, whereas Lee Majors is 80. They currently live in Houston, Texas.
