'Talk' Co-Host Marie Osmond Talks Remarrying First Husband Stephen Craig 26 Years after Their Divorce
Marie Osmond, in a recent interview, opened up about her second marriage to her ex-husband, saying, "Nothing is an accident."
In life, few people get to experience true love, and very few others, get to find that love more than once in a lifetime. Marie Osmond, of "The Talk," is part of the latter, and in an interview with People, she opened about remarrying her ex-husband, Stephen Craig.

THERE'S A PLAN TO EVERYTHING
"Nothing is an accident."
She went on to explain that being a spiritual person, she believes God orchestrates everything for a specific time. The singer and actress turned talk show host, met Craig when she was 22.
The thing about second marriages is that you realize the things you thought were so important aren't
At the time, Osmond was enjoying the success of her hit show with her brother, "Donny and Marie." They got married shortly and had their son, Stephen, a year later. The marriage lasted for three years, and by '85, things went awry.
GOD GIVES SECOND CHANCES
The couple got divorced, and the singer remarried Brian Blossil, with whom she had six children. Osmond's second marriage ended in 2007, and she told the news outlet she believed then, she would never get married again.
By 2009, the TV personality reconnected with Craig through their son and rekindled their romance.
People were so cruel because [I] chose to show my children that they had to go on living

"The thing about second marriages is that you realize the things you thought were so important aren't."
"I love being with my husband; he is the sweetest man I know. He lives to serve and really listens to people's needs."
The TV host is happy with the former pro-basketballer turned motivational speaker, and interestingly, he was with Osmond when she lost her son, Michael, to suicide in 2010.
The singer opened up about that time of her life on her first appearance on "The Talk" in September. She recalled getting shamed for returning to work after the then-18-year-old teenager died.
"When my son died, I chose to go back to work a week after his funeral, and people were so cruel because [I] chose to show my children that they had to go on living."
Craig was there to help Osmond through that difficult phase. They support each other in everything, and their love keeps triumphing always.
