News Anchor Neil Cavuto and His Wife Mary Fulling Have Been Together since High School
Neil Cavuto is a journalist and news anchor best known for his work as a writer and producer for Market Wrap and Business Insider.
Today, he hosts his shows, Your World with Neil Cavuto and Cavuto Live on Fox News.
Since 2018, he has also been part of Cavuto: Coast to Coast, which airs on Fox Business Network.
While Cavuto is a successful anchor, he had many difficulties with his health behind the scenes. Nevertheless, the love of his life, his wife Mary Fulling, was always there for him no matter what.
Neil Cavuto and His Wife Mary Fulling's Relationship
Cavuto knew he wanted to be a journalist since he was a kid. As a result, he earned a bachelor's degree in mass communication at St. Bonaventure University in 1980.
However, a bachelor's degree was not the only thing he achieved at the college. As per People, he also met his wife, Fulling.
The pair used to work together for their school newspaper department, where they fell in love.
Three years after his graduation, the couple got married on October 15, 1983.
Cavuto and his spouse have been married for almost 38 years and have been through thick and thin. Fulling has supported her husband while he battled cancer and multiple sclerosis.

The journalist was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease in the late 80s. However, he did not let anyone know about it because he feared letting people know about his cancer would affect his career.
Cavuto had just landed a TV job in New York and was extremely paranoid that he would get kicked out. As a result, he got radiation and chemotherapy in secret with the help of his wife.
A decade later, there was more bad news waiting for the journalist.
He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1997 — a neurological disorder with no cure.
Once again, the doting wife was there to support her husband. The pair joke about the disease to lift the anchor's spirits. The seasoned interviewer told Chicago Tribune,
I joke with her that I use the illness to get out of putting out the garbage or doing jobs at home. Then she'll say, 'No, you can still wheel the garbage to the front of the house.' She has a good attitude about it, and I need that.
Neil Cavuto and Mary Fulling's Kids
Cavuto and his spouse share a family of five with their three children — one biological daughter and two adopted sons. Their oldest, Tara Cavuto, is in her late 30s, whereas their sons, Bradley Cavuto and Jeremy Cavuto, are in their mid-20s.
According to Facebook, Cavuto's daughter studied at the West Morris Mendham Highschool. She works as an assistant teacher in Children's corner Morristown, New Jersey.
The TV personality's daughter also worked as an assistant teacher at Clockwork Learning Center. But she left her job there.
Because of his busy schedule, the anchor was not always present for his daughter and sons when they were growing up. As a result, he missed many of their games and recitals when they were young.
But he made sure he made it up to them afterward. He would call and check up on them constantly.

The anchor believes in quality time over quantity of time, and his kids also share the same sentiments. They understand their father is a busy man, yet he makes efforts for them.
All that matters is that the journalist cares for his kids no matter what and always looks out for them. Be it via Skype, FaceTime, or being physically present, he is with them forever.
