Pam Dawber graduated from high school and went to Oakland Community College, but she dropped out to start her career as a model. She moved to New York City to work as a model and study acting. Before she got her first fundamental role, she was in many TV ads.

In March 1986, Dawber and Harmon met at a party for a friend they both knew. Dawber had made a list of the things she wanted in a guy, and Harmon had all of them.

In an interview in March 1987, Dawber said that she and Harmon’s wedding wouldn’t be a big show because she was determined not to let it become one.

On March 21, 1987, they married in a small ceremony where only close family and friends were present. Despite their height, they became quiet after their wedding and have stayed that way ever since.

When asked why the couple stays low-key and private, Harmon said it’s not a choice and just who they are. He also said that they spend a lot of time at home and that he doesn’t use social media.

In 1987, when Harmon and Dawber were still dating, Dawber talked about their privacy in a conversation. He said that they kept things private as a way to protect themselves.

Harmon and Dawber have been married for more than 30 years. They are still together, very much in love, and strong. Because they have been married for a long time, many people have wondered what their big secret is.

In a 2019 interview, Harmon did his best to explain what made their marriage work. Surprisingly, he said it was due to maturity. He said they were both in their 30s when they got married, so hopefully, all the dumb things they did before didn’t hurt them.


Besides being the same age, the fact that they are different is another thing that brings them together. Harmon said they don’t usually like the same things, which mostly worked out well for them.

Sean Thomas and Ty Christian are the couple’s two kids. Sean and Ty keep a low profile, just like their well-known parents. Sean has followed in his famous parents’ footsteps and is both an actor and a director. He is also a stuntman who has worked in a lot of movies.

Ty also wants to work in Hollywood, just like Sean. He also writes scripts. “Catholic Schoolgirl Chainsaw Showdown,” Sean directed, was one of his scripts.

Dawber and Harmon are very proud of their young men. They never let their busy schedules stop them from caring for their kids, and they were always there for them.
