Generally not performing with her brothers in the group's television performances through the 1960s, Marie went on to gain significant success in the music industry on her own. However, much like any other celebrity in the American music industry, her personal life was not without trouble. Despite the immensely successful profession, Marie Osmond faced her fair share of turbulence when it comes to partnership. Married three times in total, two of which were with the same guy, here is the complete detail of her love life.
First Engagement with Jeff Crayton
Six years after Marie released her first single 'Paper Rose' in 1973, she announced her engagement with an acting student Jeff Crayton. The meeting happened in 1979, and the Osmond was all set to walk down the aisle for her big day.

Planning to get married to the former Mormon Church missionary from Los Angeles, the pair set a date for August of the same year. Alas, the union never happened as the twosome decided to call quits on the relationship only two months after their engagement.
In January of 2019, she also admitted to briefly dating Erik Estrada and singer Andy Gibb around the same time in an episode of Andy Cohen's show.
First and Third Marriage with Stephen Lyle Craig
Marie Osmond's union with Stephen Lyle Craig remains one of the most crucial aspects of her life to date. Osmond tied the knot with the Brigham Young University basketball player Stephen on June 26, 1982. Less than a year later, the couple announced their good news as they welcomed their first and only child Stephen James Craig on April 20, 1983.

Yet what seemed like a happy relationship had its flaws under the curtain that caused the divorce between them in October 1985. The marriage only lasted for three years before they decide to call quits. Nevertheless, after another failed marriage, Stephen came back to fill up the same position 26 long years later.
The remarriage took place in a small ceremony in the Las Vegas Nevada Temple on May 4, 2011. Marie wore the very same dress from her wedding with Craig in 1982.
Second Marriage with Brian Blosil
In between her times with Stephen, Marie found solace and married for the second time with Brian Blosil, a small actor of sorts who is known for his works in on Maybe This Time (1995) and Wildest Dreams (1987). Osmond walked down the aisle for Brain on October 28, 1986, at the Jordan River Temple in Utah.
