They got married in 1963 but separated in 1967 and by 1969, their union was officially annulled. The couple share two daughters together- Elyn and Marjorie.

A few months after his divorce from Posner had been finalized, Neil decided to marry for the second time, this time around to Marcia Murphey who worked as a production assistant.
