ESPN is preparing a five part documentary showing the life OJ Simpson led with his first wife, Marguerite. The two met as high school students and were friends for a long time. At the time, Marguerite was dating Simpson’s best friend. When the young couple was struggling through their relationship, Simpson was the one that talked to Marguerite on his friend’s behalf.
Instead, Marguerite and Simpson married when they were 18, and 19, respectively. They went on to have three children together, though the youngest one tragically died at the age of two, following the divorce of Marguerite and Simpson.
