Markie Post’s Short-lived Marriage With Stephen Knox

Marjorie met Stephen Knox, a fellow drama student at college during her undergraduate years at Lewis & Clark College.

She dated Stephen for some years, and finally, the duo got married on June 11, 1971. At that time, Marjorie hadn’t established herself as an actress. About her first marriage, Markie said;

I fell for him because I had never met a man with real angst. He was charismatic and cynical and married him out of passion; I had never had a sexual experience before. I was Snow White, and he was James Dean.

Markie Post’s Second Marriage With Michael A. Ross

Marjorie met with Michael A. Ross in an acting class in 1980. About their first encounter with each other, Michael said;

I thought Markie was a huge phony. She had just completed a reading and was sensational. People were giving her compliments, and she was saying, ‘Oh, really? Oh, do you really mean that?’ I thought she was playing little Miss Shirley Temple.

Like Michael, Markie was not attracted to him either at first. She said;

I only asked him to do the scene with me because another guy was hitting on me and I wanted to get rid of him.

After a year of dating, the couple decided to be one another’s life partner on February 7, 1982. They were even happier when Marjorie gave birth to their two daughters Daisy Ross and Katie Ross. In February of this year, they celebrated their 37th wedding anniversary.
