A friend says David Letterman has been married for years. Another friend says otherwise. Is he married or not?
—Jerry M., Texas

Listen to the friend who says otherwise, David Letterman isn't married and hasn't been for many years. He was married once, to his college sweetheart, from 1969 to 1977, and he had a long-term relationship with a writer who worked with him on his TV show. More recently, there were references to his serious romantic involvement with a Late Show staffer, but he's extremely private about his personal life. The Indianapolis native has no children, though he's said in a few interviews that he'd like a family one day. Letterman, who turned 56 April 12, lives in Connecticut.
