Maury was not ready to commit after his first failed marriage

He had cheated on Connie several times while they were dating. He did not want to be in a committed relationship

Thus he had adopted the policy of neither asking nor telling his partner. 

This did not last for a long time as Connie was fed up, and she gave an ultimatum.

Life changed for him after they walked down the aisle. He never looked back, and there were no more cheating days.

His wife was successful at making him loyal.

Lawyer or Chef?

Maury on his retirement after 31 years 

The longest-running daytime show host in broadcast history, Maury Povich, announced his retirement after 31 years. 

He wrapped filming in the mid of March 2022. In an exclusive interview with Good Morning America, Maury talked about his retirement and what’s next. 

Maury said he will miss the storytelling more than anything else as he has always said he is nothing more than a storyteller, but he is going to miss the crew and the staff. 

Among his top memories during the show, there is one particular that’s etched in his memory forever and that is when a woman was accusing a guy of being the father of her twins. 

At the time, he didn’t want to know the results of lie detector tests or DNA tests more than his guests, his live audiences, or the audience at home. 

So when he opened up the envelope, he said to the guy that he was the father of one, not the other. 

Maury himself was completely shocked and was like What? According to the scientist, it’s a million to one shot. 

With fraternal twins, if someone is active over a 24-48 hour period, one can have two fathers. 

When asked about how it feels not having a show to do, Maury said he is clueless about how he is going to feel when there are no red lights, no staff and crew, and his friends for so many years.

He thinks he will feel empty and lost, but all he knows is that they have had such a good run; he thinks now is the time to end it. 

Talking about how his wife feels about his retirement, he said his beloved wife Connie believes that she would rather be married to the kind of a guy who does the show rather than a guy who comes home every day. 

So, she is going to find some creative ways to keep me out of the house, and she wants to be around the guy on T.V, he added humorously.

After his retirement, Maury, as an avid golfer, has a lot of free time to work on his golf. It has been his therapy for the last 50 years, he says.

Net Worth
