Actor Hugh married theater administrator Joanne Green in 1989. Even though they have spent more than 34 years of their married life together, their journey has not been easy. They were even in a state of getting a divorce.
James Hugh Calum Laurie met Joanne Green in the 1980s through a mutual friend, and the couple instantly started dating each other. Though the couple was not married, by 1988, Green was pregnant. At the end of the year, the couple welcomed their first baby, Charles Archibald Laurie.
After the birth of Charles, Hugh married his long-term wife Joanne in June 1989 in the church in Oxford, England. This loving couple built their marriage again and is still together to date.

For professional reasons, Hugh and his spouse Green had to stay apart from her husband for about eight years.
Such a long time! Despite being away for years, Hugh and his wife's relationship stood still. Probably, many would have divorced, but their relationship came out safe from the point-blank range of divorce.
Let's know more.
The main reason behind their nearly devastated marriage was Hugh Laurie's tight-scheduled career and long distance. Hugh could not get to see his family for almost nine months each year. This separation created many problems in Hugh and Jo’s married life.
To cease this problem, Hugh even moved his whole family to Los Angeles in 2008. But, due to some unknown reasons, this plan got canceled. The issue became more viral after the rumors of the couple Hugh-Jo's divorce got headlines. However, later in 2012, Hugh moved back to the capital and reunited with his wife and kids. And since then, they have been living happily.
During the 8 years of living apart, Hugh Laurie was fully loyal to his wife. He was never rumored to have had any other affair or girlfriend. Hugh seems to be one of the rare breeds of celebrities who value their marriage. That is the reason behind his unconditional love for his wife. Thus, he never did anything shallow.
