Inspired by Dr. Phil McGraw's early career, "Bull" premiered in 2016 and became a popular staple on television during its four seasons-and-counting on the air.

With Michael Weatherly leading the cast as the bashful and brilliant Dr. Jason Bull, he learns what makes people tick by using a combination of technology, intuition, and psychology. Thankfully, none of that was needed when we looked into the main cast members' real-life love lives.

Where Michael Weatherly's character, Jason Bull, hardly makes an effort to take care of himself, the actor has a wife and two children in real-life that he takes care of and loves.

His wife, Bojana Jankovic, is an award-winning physician and has double board certification in integrative and internal medicine. The couple met when Michael accompanied friends to a bar in Vancouver in 2007, and the sparks flew from the moment they laid eyes on each other.

The couple married on September 6, 2009, in Los Angeles, and have since welcomed two children, their daughter Olivia, and their son, Liam.

While fans of the comedy-crime drama got to Geneva as Marissa Morgan, she had one brief marriage in real-life to date.

After meeting for coffee through an online dating site, Geneva dated the architect Yuji Yamazaki for ten months before they became engaged, two and a half weeks later, the couple married on June 26, 2014.

The newlyweds postponed their honeymoon until December 2014, so they could spend it in the Maldives after the completion of one of Yuji's designed projects. However, the couple divorced a year later on December 27, 2015.

Soon after getting married, the couple extended their family with a daughter, Jadelyn, and a son, C.J., whom Christopher found out to be autistic a few minutes before his performance "In The Heights" started in 2007. Since then, the couple became advocates for the group, Autism Speaks.

Known as Danny James on "Bull," actress Jaime Lee Kirschner is very private about her personal life, especially regarding her marriage to Benjamin Emanuel Kaplan.

As longtime sweethearts, Benjamin and Jaime married on June 22, 2012, during her time as a regular cast member on the Fox series, "The Mob Doctor."

Sightings and photographs of the couple together in public, are as rare as chicken teeth, and their marriage lasted two years before they divorced while Jaime starred in primetime soap opera, "Members Only" in 2014.

Annabelle starred as the team's computer expert, Cable McCrory, on the first two seasons of the show, but on July 13, 2018, it came to light that she would be the first main cast member to leave the show.

The actress decided to leave so she could focus on directing the feature film, "Mickey and the Bear," which premiered at South by Southwest 2019. Not her first time sitting in that particular chair, Annabelle directed, wrote, and starred in the 2016 short film, "Frankie Keeps Talking."

She has immersed herself in her career and hasn't found the time to make it to the altar with anyone as of yet. Around 2016, Annabelle moved in with two longtime friends, and she spends any free time she has writing or reading.

As the daughter of Katie Jacobs and screenwriter Paul Attanasio, who together created and produced popular television shows, including "Gideon's Crossing" and "House," Annabelle's career essentially started at the age of four.

Katie enrolled Annabelle in a musical theater class to help with her shyness. It worked so well that Annabelle landed the lead role in a Los Angeles production of "Annie."

Of her most recent role as Cable in "Bull," Annabelle loved the character as soon as she read the script, and found that they have a few things in common, as she said:

"She has a very tough exterior, and she's someone who is going to prove you wrong when she is second-guessed. I'm personally less vocal but I have the same trait where I will diplomatically nod and then quietly prove you wrong. Also, Cable's from a different generation than her co-workers and thinks her co-workers are archaic in their views. She's very outspoken."

Relatedly, Michael Weatherly's marriage to Bojana is not his first, neither are the two children they share.

And with the actor's children looking more like him by the day, he opened up about his first failed marriage and his experience as a father.
