Kevin Grandalski and Marlee Matlin married life
Kevin Grandalski met Marlee Marlin when he was monitoring traffic while she was filming the television show Reasonable Doubts.
They blended the excitement of police work with the craziness of Hollywood. Marlee revealed that when she saw him she was smitten by him in his uniform.
“He’s not Jewish, but I believe that we can share both our beliefs in a household together. We celebrate both holidays, and we were married by both a rabbi and a priest on the front lawn at Henry Winkler’s house.”
They dated for two years before walking down the aisle on 29th August 1993. Their wedding was officiated by both rabbi and a Catholic priest.
Together they have four children Sarah born in 1996, Brandon born in 2000, Tyler born in 2002, and Isabelle born in 2003. Her son Brandon knows three languages English, Spanish, and Sign.

“TODAY – 30 years of being sober (that’s my chip)! I thank my husband, children, family, friends and ME. I cannot imagine my life without it.”
Marlee’s drug battle
Marlee battled with drug abuse and spent time in the rehabilitation center. She found out about her Oscar nod for 1986’s Children of a Lesser God there. She also credited Betty Ford for helping her beat her addiction for three decades back.
In her autobiography I’ll Scream Later, she wrote,
“It should have been the best time of my life. And in a surreal way it was. I had won a Golden Globe for my performance as the deaf, angry young woman in the film Children of a Lesser God.”
Also, Marlee lost her hearing capacity at the age of 18 months. It was caused due to her illness and high fevers. But her parents were very supportive of her.
