Influential motivational speaker and millionaire Wayne Walter Dyer’s life has been a series of upheavals, traumas and making the best out of a bad situation and moving on to better things. Life hands out a mix of good and bad cards; it’s then up to you how you want to play them. Similarly, after living through a bad and unhappy childhood, Wayne Dyer seems to have had a series of unfortunate marriages, three in number, that have ended in divorce courts for the two of those marriages while the last one looks that it might just go that way.
Not much is known about the reasons behind the first two splits, though the fact that Wayne seems believe in a kind of open marriage and even spoke about it in an interview to a newspaper that even though he was married, if he was attracted to a woman, he would go ahead and have dinner with her without any qualms. So, perhaps his previous wives didn’t appreciate his point of view and preferred a life without him!
Celebrity self-help guru, Wayne Dyer was first married to a lady called Judy who bore him one daughter, Tracy described by him in a book as ‘the light of my life’; his second marriage to Susan Casselman who taught deaf children and was independent minded did not result in any child and his third marriage to Marcelene bore him five children, Skye, Sommer, Serena, Sands, Saje besides the two of Marcelene’s from a previous marriage, Shane and Stephanie.
Wayne has been very open and frank regarding the reason his last marriage didn’t last. Wayne and Marcelene had been married for almost twenty years when in 2003, she met and ran away with someone else who according to the grapevine is an eighteen years younger Australian chiropractor. For Wayne, it was a huge shock and act of betrayal. Wayne and Marcelene continue to remain married to each other, but are separated.
