Connie Chung Meets Maury, Love During Hard Times
Connie Chung, who wasn’t sure about the relationship, is living a family life in delight with her husband Maury Povich, who is a Metromedia anchorman.
They first met in 1969 when they were both climbing the ladder of success. The duo met when they were working for WTTG. At that time, Maury was an anchor there, and Connie was a copy girl.
Later in 1976, they both took steps towards their career in separate ways. Maury went to Chicago, and Connie was in Los Angeles living her dream. They did not see each other and were out of contact until they were teamed up as anchors on KNXT in Los Angeles.
Back then, Maury was going through a problematic phase as he was handling the salary dispute with the station at Chicago, and his marriage which was on the verge of collapsing.
During his time of hardship, Maury turned to Connie for compassion. They would meet up and Connie, in turn, would lift him up both emotionally and mentally. According to Maury, that is when the duo started hitting it off.
But later in 1978, Maury was on the move again, and their romance took a break. Maury expressed they both felt distant and were estranged. Meanwhile, they then started re-evaluating their life and did not see each other for six months.
After that, they both decided on becoming pen pals. Even though they both were not involved romantically, they both began missing each other. While they were seeing other people, they came to realize how much they meant to one other. By the summer of 1983, when Maury was in Washington, they both were back on track again.
Connie Finally Made Maury Husband
Nevertheless, they both were in on and off relationship which finally made it to the wedding ceremony. Even though Connie and Maury weren’t sure that they wanted to marry, the couple tied the nuptial knot on 2 December 1984 after seven years of dating.

In the meantime, their friends believe that the couple is a perfect match for each other. According to one of their friends, they are the only ones who could tolerate each other.
