8 January 1989
Where/How First Met
while she was working on a duet for the soundtrack of Staying Alive
(8 January 1989 - 2014) 3 sons
They met in 1983 while she was working on a duet for the soundtrack of Staying Alive. Rhodes, seven years his senior, thought he was much too young for her at the time.
Marx and Rhodes didn`t start dating until two years later, when they both met again at a party. After a four-year courtship, the couple married on January 8, 1989. Even though Rhodes had a very fruitful career at the time, she made the conscious decision to retire from film acting, dancing, and singing to become stay-at-home mom to the couple`s three sons. Together they reside in Chicago, Illinois.
On January 8, 1989, Marx married the singer/dancer/actress Cynthia Rhodes. Rhodes acted and sang in Staying Alive (1982), Flashdance (1983), and most notably in the 1987 blockbuster Dirty Dancing, as well as appearing as the female lead in Marx's first video, "Don't Mean Nothing". Rhodes also briefly sang lead for the second incarnation of the synth-pop band Animotion in the late 1980s. The couple have three sons—Brandon (born 1990), Lucas (born 1992), and Jesse (born 1994)—and reside in Lake Bluff, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Recently, in an article dated April 4, 2014, the couple announced the dissolution of their 25-year marriage.
