Jay Leno and Mavis Leno – Together Since 1980
American comedian and television personality Jay Leno is famous for hosting The Tonight Show for a long time. Famous for his neat, observational brand of humor, Leno made various successful appearances on late-night TV. After cutting ties with The Tonight Show, Leno started hosting a web series called Jay Leno’s Garage for the same network.
The stand-up comedian met his wife Mavis in 1976 and tied the knot in 1980, years before he would go on to host his iconic talk-show. But what is more surprising is that without having children the couple is still enjoying a 39-year-long marriage, free from bankruptcy.
A lifelong feminist, Mavis is four years older than his husband. While Leno is in show business, Mavis is passionate about English history. So how do the two manage to keep up such a healthy relationship? Well, as Leno uses to say, ‘marry someone you wish you could be.’
