Woody Cleveland Is Married to 'The Washington Post' Columnist Kathleen Parker

Kathleen Parker, after divorce from her first husband, moved to North Carolina to spend some quality time. While there, she got invited to South Carolina by her aunt and her cousin for a visit.

Guess what, Parker's cousin was a friend to the native Woody and knew that he was recently divorced and will be a good fit for her cousin Kathleen. With that intention, the cousin of the writer invited Woody to the dinner.

Parker, after the divorce, was not interested in dating, marriage, or men in general. She knew what she wanted to do careerwise and has no interest in a romantic relationship. However, after meeting Woody, her perspective began to change.

Kathleen found Woody a grounded, kind, and well-spoken man, and thus she decided to give marriage a second chance. Thus, on 1987, the pair tied the knot.

A Supportive Husband

After marriage, Kathleen moved to Camden, South Carolina, and began raising three children, one son from her first marriage and two sons from her husband's first marriage. Though she became a full-time mom and a housewife, she did not gave up her passion of writing. She continued to write a column in a local newspaper using her last name Parker, so people do not recognize her.

After a few years, when Kathleen's son, who is the youngest in the family of five, went to college, she told her husband that she wants to move to Washington and start her career as a columnist there. Cleveland agreed and stated:

“I completely understand, and I support you 100 percent.”

With the support from her husband, Parker moved to Washington and flourished as a columnist, whereas Woody remained in South Carolina working as a attorney. 

People are surprised how Cleveland and his wife maintain their marriage even though they remain miles apart for most of the year. Parker, in an interview, revealed that they both are committed one hundred percent to keeping their family intact. If they ever think their family is in danger of breaking because of some actions, they quickly change the course.
