Marriage and Divorce
Adler married her husband, Doug Ellin, an American screenwriter, and producer, on 18 September 2017. The pair first met sometime around 2015 when she interviewed him on one of her shows.
The first meeting did not start any personal relationship between them. It took them close to two years before they met for the second time.
In January 2017, Ellin reached out to her and put forward his interest in meeting her, which Adler readily accepted. Then after three weeks on the phone, he traveled to her workplace in New York and went out on their first date.
The pair soon bonded and eventually got engaged on 30 April 2017.
Moreover, the same year in September, they exchanged wedding vows. They had a ceremony with only the presence of their family in San Diego.
However, as a married couple, less than one year decided to part ways. Reportedly, their respective jobs consistently kept them apart, leaving them with very little quality time with each other. They both considered moving to one another’s place, i.e., Ellin’s home in LA or Adler’s place in New York.
But, neither of them could give up their well-settled career at their respective places. Speaking about it with pagesix.com on 30 April 2018, he said,
Unfortunately, the distance was too tough … I contemplated moving to New York, and she to LA, but Andy has a great career and life already set up there, as do I here.
Ellin then filed for a legal separation in April 2018. But again, the court is yet to make its final decision on the pair’s relationship.
