Carl Bernstein Began His Career At The Age Of 16
On 14 February 1944, Carl was born to the Jewish family of Sylvia and Alfred Bernstein in Washington, D.C. After graduating from Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland, Carl went on to the University of Maryland but dropped out of it pretty soon.
Having started his career in journalism at the early age of 16 as the paperboy for The Washington Star, Carl rose through the ranks pretty fast.
However, since he did not have the college degree, they did not allow him to write for the paper. Carl's journalism career actually started as a full-time reporter for the Elizabeth Daily Journal in 1965.
Carl Bernstein Set An Example With His Exposure Of The Watergate Scandal
A year later, he got a breakthrough in his career, joining The Washington Post. In 1972, Carl and his teammate, Bob Woodward narrated the detailed report about the illegal activities undertaken by administrative members of the American President, Richard Nixon in the Watergate office complex.
The Watergate Scandal led to the numerous investigation by the government and later it resulted in the president's resignation in August 1974.
Covering the story of the scandal, Carl and Bob published a book, All the President's Men in 1974 and The Final Days in 1976, which became the best-seller.
Carl left the newspaper in 1977 to join ABC News, where he worked as a senior correspondent. He is also an author of some popular books that include His Holiness: John Paul II, Hidden History of Our Time, and A Woman in Charge.

Carl Bernstein's Marital Life: Third Time Is The Charm
Carl Bernstein is currently married to former model Christine Kuehbeck. The couple tied the knot on 4th July 2003 in Reykjavik, Iceland.
According to his website, Carl and Christine reside together in New York. They are still enjoying their blissful married life and attend several events together. Recently, in October 2017, the pair were spotted at the Vanity Fair award 2017 in Madrid, Spain.
