January 13, 2020
Dick Van Dyke is a famous actor and comedian, whose career has spanned for seven decades. But he is not only famous for his work in the entertainment industry. His first marriage — as well as the consequential divorce — was the talk of tabloids.
On February 12, 1948, he married Margie Willett, whom he dated just for one month, on the radio show Bride and Groom. They had four children before divorcing in 1984 after a long separation.
