But despite all the odds, Martin and his wife are together, going strong each day. They tied knots back in November 1989. Sources say that the two dated for several years before tying the knot.
The TV personality hasn't revealed much about his family life but the two share some of their happy moments with fans via Instagram.
Martin shared an Instagram post with his gorgeous wife on 25 November 2017 celebrating their 28th Wedding Anniversary.
The pair share two children together who are all grown-ups now.
For his family, he left his Atlanta-based NBC job and started working in New York as an anchor for the nightly news program, Worldfocus.
During an interview with Access Atlanta, he said:
"There were so many times when I would disappear and go off to cover wars in Afghanistan or Iraq, which are just two of at least 10 wars — I think that's the count we came up with as a family — that I've covered. Whenever the kids wanted to see what their dad was doing they could turn on the TV. And a lot of times their dad was wearing body armor and reporting from places far away and from places that were very dangerous."
"I think from a young age they realized their father was doing something very different, and it was something important, but something that took him very far away from them. So there were times when they would come to me, if it was possible, or we'd meet in a neutral, safe place like London or Paris. Because I struggle with the balance of the job I have versus wanting to be the father and husband you want to be. There's no question that this profession puts a strain on your family."
He celebrated 'Father's Day' on 17th June 2017 with an Instagram post with his kids:
As the family and professional life must go on side by side, we wish Martin Savidge a wonderful life ahead.
