Michael Jayston Marriages: The Marriages That Didn't Last Forever

His first marriage was to actress Lynn Farleigh whom he married in 1965. He found his wife at the beginning of his career and he must have thought that she was the one as he married her. However, their marriage could not last long. He and Lynn divorced in 1970. He did not have any children from his first marriage and whether it was due to this reason that his first marriage failed, we could not say for sure.

After the end of his marriage to Lynn Farleigh, his second marriage was to Heather Mary Sneddon. It has not been reported as to when he married her, but the two divorced in 1977. Unlike his first marriage, he had two sons, Tom, and Ben from his second marriage and had also adopted a Vietnamese child Li-an. He had three children from his second marriage but even having children could not save his marriage. 

A Marriage Lasting Decades

His past unsuccessful marriages did not deter him from trying to find true love. After his second divorce in 1977, he married Ann Smithson in 1979. And he did not have to worry about a fourth marriage as with Ann he was finally able to share the rest of his life. 

He moved to Brighton with Ann and still currently resides there. The happy couple has two children, Richard and Katy. It has been 40 years since their marriage and he is still happily married. He has become an example that it is possible to find true love.
