When exactly they met is not known, but after the charismatic lady met her then-boyfriend and future husband Marcus Fitzgerald, an engineer and former model, they dated for almost a decade.
The lovely pair was engaged to each other for seven years before getting married. The 30 Rock actress and her beau apparently tied the knot on 9th July 2005. Before their high profile wedding, the romantic affair between these two was a hot topic of discussion.
The couple was happily married to each other until 2014. Something happened in their relationship and their marriage ended up in a nasty divorce. When the news about their divorce surfaced in media, her fans and haters alike were rather shocked.
Nobody had ever imagined that a strong couple like them would ever split. Fans were heartbroken and prayed that the much loved pair would reconcile and come together.
The reason behind their unceremonious divorce is still not clear as the couple was quite discreet about their personal life. They hardly spoke about it. It is not a new thing for Hollywood couple to break up just like that.
It is common for the celebs in the showbiz to hook up with anyone they are interested in. They date, marry and even have babies together but after a certain time, they get fed up each other and finally decide to cut the thread.
But the relationship between Neal and her husband that we are talking about was something. It was not meant to break so easily unlike other Hollywood couples. They married after seven years of dating and were together for almost ten years, we can assume they had a strong foundation for their relationship.
Unfortunately, Neal and Fitzgerald did not have any children and people say that this might be the reason behind their divorce. Sources claim that the actress wanted to get pregnant but her husband was not ready to be a parent. Some also claim that Neal’s dismissal from Law and Order was the reason behind their spill.
It is rumored that the hilarious and talented actress was actually fired from the show at the end of the season 9. Nobody knows how much truth there is to this hearsay so we’d rather not comment on that.
