Maureen McCormick pursued her future husband at church, credits their marriage of 37 years to ‘our faith’

Nowadays, most people meet their significant other through a dating app, but it wasn’t too long ago that finding your soulmate required venturing out into the real world.

And yes, even celebrities had to do the hard work when it came to pursuing their potential one true love.

Just ask Maureen McCormick, 67, who first spotted her future husband at a concert, but won him over at church.

Maureen McCormick is best known for playing Marcia on The Brady Bunch from 1969 to 1974. After the sitcom ended, McCormick, who was born on August 5, 1956, appeared in several Brady Bunch spin-offs.

She struggled in her personal life the most in the years after the conclusion of The Brady Bunch, despite her fame on the sitcom. McCormick’s credibility as an actress suffered due to her struggles with drug addictions, periods of despair, and bulimia.

“I’ve been through a lot of hard times, but I take all those experiences and learn and grow from them,” she told People in 2016.

“I received treatment in a psych ward, entered and exited rehab, and prayed to God for guidance.”

As the former child actress battled an addiction to cocaine and was struggling to come to terms that the acting career she had dreamed of was not turning out as she had hoped, she encountered a man at a concert she knew would become her husband.

“I turned around and saw this guy behind me,” McCormick wrote in her autobiography, Here’s the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice.

“I’d never seen him before. He had dark hair, a great build, and chiseled features. I looked straight into his eyes and thought, ‘This is the man I’m going to marry.’”
