Inside Pauley's Marital Life!
Pauley is married to Garry Trudeau, a cartoonist who won a Pulitzer for creating the comic strip Doonesbury. The happy couple is now doting parents of three grown children and grandparents of two. Pauley and her husband had their first encounter in 1975 when her friend, journalist Tom Brokaw and his wife invited the duo for a small dinner party.

Jane had just started her role as a host at Today, but Trudeau was already a big star."It absolutely was a setup. And it worked," Pauley told Ability magazine. A fun fact, Pauley hadn't heard of Doonesbury until she met Garry. After four years of a romantic relationship, the duo tied the knots on June 14, 1980.
Over the years, the couple experienced what can be best described as a perfectly balanced marriage. Jane says it was Trudeau's humor that attracted her first, and it was because of their shared humor and respect for each other that their marriage was able to withstand the test of times. Pauley and her husband welcomed their twins, Richard and Rachel Trudeau, on December 30, 1983.

The veteran journalist was working for Today when she birthed her youngest, Thomas Trudeau, in 1986. Jane was, at the time, juggling to fulfill her role as a mother and an ambitious woman. Jane later told the People that though children should be a mother's top priority, it doesn't mean she should compromise on her ambitions.

Trudeau no longer writes the daily Doonesbury, but he does contribute to the strip's Sunday edition. Garry also holds several credits as a writer; he wrote and co-produced HBO's Tanner 88, its sequel Tanner on Tanner. Along with Pulitzer, Garry boasts many awards to his name like the Orwell Award, Harvey Award, and more.
Pauley and Trudeau have been married for 41 years now. Trudeau has a reputation of being rather reticent than his vocal wife, but the cartoonist did agree to an interview with his wife in 2018. In the interview on CBS Sunday Morning, Trudeau tells his wife that his career as a cartoonist was accidental.
