Mary Martin and Ben Hagman Needs a Banner!
(3 November 1929 - 1936) (divorced) (1 child)
they had a son named Larry Martin Hagman September 21, 1931 in Fort Worth, Texas Died: November 23, 2012 (age 81) in Dallas, Texas
During high school, Martin dated Benjamin Hagman, before she was packed off to finishing school at Ward-Belmont in Nashville, Tennessee
During that time, she enjoyed imitating Fanny Brice at singing gigs, but she found school dull and felt confined by its strict rules. She was homesick for Weatherford, her family, and Hagman. During a visit, Mary and Benjamin persuaded Mary's mother to allow them to marry. They did, and by the age of 17, Martin was legally married, pregnant with her first child (Larry Hagman) and forced to leave Ward-Belmont. She was, however, happy to begin her new life. But she soon learned that this life, as she would later say, was nothing but “role playing”.
