"Clearly I believe in it because I've kept trying it," says the actress Mel Harris when asked about her several marriages during an episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now.
After five failed marriages, the actress, known for her role as Hope Murdoch Steadman on the hit 80s TV show thirtysomething, found her perfect man through her sixth marriage.

The sand was from the Jersey shore where the couple first exchanged vows twelve years ago.
Mel further extended her gratitude to her spouse by writing,
"Thanks for the love and the laughs and the joy and the tears. Here’s to holding hands no matter where that journey takes us."
The actress got married to Bob Brush, a screenwriter, and a producer, on July 27, 2001. It has been reported that the duo dated for almost two years before tieing the knot.
While talking about her married life, Mel quoted,
“I’m married to a wonderful guy. I plan to be married to him forever and ever. I have a great life. I have lovely children. It has absolutely been the best — I’m going to cry — and the most rewarding thing I’ve done in my life. And the best blessing that anyone has ever given to me.”
Despite experiencing unfortunate turns in her married life, Mel's belief in a forever marriage is still potent than ever.

Harris then got married to David Hume Kennerly. The couple was together from October 30, 1983, to 1988, and from her marriage with Kennerly, she gave birth to her eldest child, Byron Kennerly.
Soon after, Mel tied the knot with Cotter Smith, who seemed suitable to be her other half. But just like that, they had to part their ways after being together for a particular period. From their marriage, Harris and Smith welcomed their daughter Madeline Smith.
