They married at Temple Ohabei Shalom in Brooklyn, Massachusetts, on June 4, 1978. They both were 24 years old.

But, marriage doesn’t always guarantee that the couple will be together until their last breath. When Deborah was just 13 years old, her parents decided to end their marriage.

After two decades of being together, they divorced in 2001 with a cordial divorce and settlement.

In the discussion about his divorce in an interview, Howard Stern said, “I was totally neurotic and sort of consumed with work. I took work as the most important thing and the only thing.”

Howard moved from their home that he shared with his wife in Old Westbury, New York, in 2001. He left Deborah and her sisters to stay with their mother in the beginning while he focused on his work.

Now. Howard Stern is married to Beth Ostrosky Stern, whereas; her mother is married to David Scott Simon.
