Marcia Clark was married to Gabriel Horowitz

Before her career skyrocketed, the only thing that was missing from Marcia Clark’s life was a good husband. She thought she met the love of her life back in college at UCLA, but he turned out to be something else. Gabriel Horowitz, an Israeli professional backgammon player, charmed her into a marriage in 1976.

Clark has often gone on record to state that she was young and naïve at the time because four years later, the couple got a “Tijuana divorce.” If that wasn’t enough anguish, she still had to deal with his outbursts that had her leaking her topless photos to the National Enquirer. Luckily for her, she got out of the marriage without any kids.

Marcia’s second husband, Gordon Clark

Clark wasted no time getting back into the relationship scene after her first marriage failed. She got married to her second husband, Gordon Clark, the same year her divorce was finalized(1980). Gordon was a nerd with a promising career. He was a computer programmer and systems administrator at the Church of Scientology.

With a promising career on both their parts, the couple decided on having two babies named Kyle Clark and Travis Clark. The former was born in 1990, followed closely by her last born in 1992.

Like her first marriage, Marcia’s second also ended in shambles following her divorce in 1995. She divorced Gordon four days before getting into the murder trial case. Unlike the former, however, this one ended in a nasty court battle over custody of the children. Things finally settled when she won the case and raised her babies in utmost privacy.

Is Marcia Clark Married now?

Some will say that Marcia Clark learned the hard way as she has never walked down another aisle into a marriage. While that may be true, that hasn’t stopped her from entering the dating world.

According to recent news, the author was linked with American lawyer Christopher Darden with the pair said to have been hooking up. The rumors seemed to have died down of late as she’s flown under the radar in her home in Calabasas, California.
