Van Dyke married Margie Willett (pictured) in 1948 on the radio show "Bride and Groom." The two divorced in 1984 after a separation. He lived with a longtime companion, Michelle Triola, for many years. She died in 2009 after battling cancer. In 2012, Van Dyke married makeup artist Arlene Silver, 40.
"For the first time in my life, I actually hit on a girl," Van Dyke said of Silver. "I sat down and introduced myself, and it was kind of love at first sight. She was not too impressed with me. She said, 'Were you in "Mary Poppins" or something?' I realized I had quite a row to hoe. But I was very patient, and we got married last February, and I'm as happy as I can be."
