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.

During the meet and greets @FlamingoVegas I have asked what you would like me to write about in my #Sunday messages. The number one topic: What do you do when life gets really tough? Harold B. Lee called [life’s tribulations], “the inevitable tragedies of life.” We don’t like the sound of the word inevitable, but it is an accurate term. Mortal life is filled with challenges, trials, setbacks, disappointments, misfortune, tragedy, disaster, loss, pain, suffering and sorrow…. When I was young I wondered where I would fit in my very talented family.I was the only girl and wanted to sing too, but could I? My brothers had already made a name for themselves and I wondered if there was even room for me. My Mother always believed in me and she would say “Marie you have a very strong voice, don’t be like others, be you.” And then one day I heard the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Judy Garland.It was as though Judy was singing those words right to me. I still fight feelings of inadequacy, but rather than give in to them, I remember my Mom believed in me. I hear those negative thoughts just like you do when I try something new...”what makes you think you can do that?” But as I let God lead me to new things, I find it’s possible! Someone recently asked me why after all the years of country, pop and broadway success I chose to sing Opera? Well, it is because my son Michael loved it. Michael’s passing left a hole in my heart that will never be filled until I see him again. When I sing his favorite genre and more specifically the song “Pie Jesu”, I can feel his presence and that brings me such joy! I went to his grave Friday when I arrived in Utah and I told him that the Saturday’s Symphonic show was for him. 🥰 The photo was from last night where I performed with the Utah Symphony Orchestra in Park City, Utah. The mountains I sang in front of are my metaphor of climbing and never giving up. Remember “when life gives you more than you can stand... kneel”. IT WORKS!

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.
