However, their marriage was short-lived, and the iconic singer had to walk down the aisle a second time to wed the man whom she spent decades with, James Brolin. Meet her two husbands.

Brolin revealed that they keep separate bank accounts, which worked for them financially.

ELLIOTT GOULD

Gould already had a name in Hollywood by the time he met the “Woman in Love” artist. His career was filled with several roles in hit shows and films, including “Ocean’s Eleven,” “The Silent Partner,” and “Getting Straight.”

To this day, Gould can be seen on-screen in the Netflix movie “Dangerous Lies,” and previously in “Humor Me” and “Contagion.”

Two years after his split from Streisand in 1971, the “M*A*S*H” star married Jennifer Bogart and welcomed two children.

Although they parted ways in 1975, fate pulled them back together, and they remarried in 1979. While Gould now lives his own life from Streisand, the two are still on good terms. The former couple has an only son, Jason Gould.

When asked about the secret to their long-lasting marriage, Brolin revealed that they keep separate bank accounts, which worked for them financially.

The pair also attend couple’s counseling as a means to resolve conflict needing an arbitrator. “Bring in a referee, talk it over, and I swear to you, it will dispel by the end of the session, each time!” Brolin shared.
