On 1 November 1927, at the age of 19, Marian married Colonel Andrew Ferguson (10 October 1899 - 4 August 1966), in London, England. The couple had two children:

  • John Andrew Ferguson (21 January 1929 - 1939)
  • Ronald Ferguson (10 October 1931 - 16 March 2003)

Her first son, John, was ten years old when he died from peritonitis. Her second son, Ronald, was the father of Sarah, Duchess of York, and the maternal grandfather of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York. Ronald Ferguson died on 16 March 2003 from a heart attack, after a lengthy battle with skin and prostate cancers.

On Wednesday, 30 October 1968, a little more than two years after the death of her husband, Andrew Ferguson (4 August 1966), Marian married Sir Thomas Elmhirst, widower of the late Katherine Black, thus becoming Lady Elmhirst. Sir Thomas died on 6 November 1982.

Famous quotes containing the words family and/or marriage:

    A house means a family house, a place specially meant for putting children and men in so as to restrict their waywardness and distract them from the longing for adventure and escape they’ve had since time began.
    Marguerite Duras (b. 1914)

    What is any respectable girl brought up to do but to catch some rich man’s fancy and get the benefit of his money by marrying him?—as if a marriage ceremony could make any difference in the right or wrong of the thing!
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
