A marital bond is concerned with three things that are experiencing the memories of togetherness, understanding each other's faults, and keeping the promise to never surrender from their relationship. So, Jean Currivan Trebek and Alex Trebek are also maintaining a cherishable bond in their marriage for several decades. Currently, Jean is a New-York based real estate agent, and Alex is presently hosting a reality game show, Jeopardy! since 1964.

Jean was born on 12th September 1964 in the United States of America and grew up in Huntington, New York. More to that, she belongs to the white ethnic background/race and holds American citizenship. Let's take a glimpse of Trebek's personal life.

Jean & Alex Trebek's Married Life

The 55-year-old real estate agent, Jean and her husband, Alex walked down the aisle on 30th April 1990 at Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport, a 3-star hotel situated in California. The duo invited more than 150 wedding guests in their nuptial ceremony.

The duo had their first encounter at a party in 1988, and shortly after the night, they created great chemistry in between. Alex even invited Jean for dinner at his home, which led them to know about each other perfectly and date afterwards.

Surprisingly, he also made a mesmerizing proposal with a 16-carat sapphire ring in a little wicker box. With so much happiness on Jean's face, she approved his proposal and got engaged shortly after a while.

Despite 24-years of the age gap, the pair are enjoying the happiest moments of their lives together. In an interview with People, Alex once said that he had a wish to know Jean from his childhood, but it was just a dream for him. Nevertheless, they're still carrying their love life beautifully.
