Though Steve Janowitz’s relationship has been a matter of interest to many for over two decades, he has remained somewhat of an enigma over the years. Fans of the award-winning daytime show – The View are perhaps conversant with the career progression of one of its co-hosts Joy Behar. But personally, the man behind her smiles has mostly lived low key, piquing media interests all the more. Besides his status as a celebrity spouse, there are lots of unanswered questions about Janowitz. Search no further to find out what he actually does for a living and what he has been up to lately.
His Career and Educational Background
There is barely any personal information about Steve Janowitz that is readily available to the public. He was an average American citizen who had a regular life that was hardly documented until his romance with Joy Behar. Hence, nothing his known about Janowitz’s exact birth date, parents, siblings, family background, and early life. However, there are unconfirmed reports that Steve and his significant other are agemates. Therefore, by estimation and by his looks, it wouldn’t be out of place to categorically state that Janowitz is a boomer.
The case is no different for his educational background and most of Steve Janowitz’s adult life. The schools he attended and his area of specialization have not been disclosed. But Janowitz once earned a living as a school teacher, hence it is apparent that he had a formal education and is perhaps a college graduate. Other than the fact that he retired as an educator, nothing else is known about Steve’s career efforts and progression.
Details of His Relationship and Personal Life
Steve Janowitz and Joy Behar’s romance goes way back and most definitely embodies the word ‘patience’! Like other details about his personal life, Janowitz’s dating history is not publicly documented. He perhaps had several romantic tangos with a few ladies in the past, but the only woman whom he can’t seem to stay away from is Joy Behar. The retired school teacher and the View cohost were famously a couple for 29 years before exchanging marital vows. The couple finally made their romance official in August 2011 in a private ceremony that held in New York City. Interestingly, Janowitz and Behar nearly tied the knot in 2009 but soon called it off by mid-year just because they wanted to end the media fuss about their marriage.
During their nearly three-decades-long courtship, Janowitz and Behar’s romance unsurprisingly raised eyebrows. While there were a lot of twists and conflicting reports as to why the couple held off on getting married for so long, it was Steve’s famous wife who later cleared the air. According to the View co-host, the delay was first and foremost because they wanted to wait until same-sex marriage was legalized in New York. Again, the comedian also admitted that she didn’t want to marry Steve earlier because his parents were still alive. In other words, since both of her own parents were deceased, Joy did not want any in-laws and hence waited until Steve Janowitz’s parents were dead. The comedienne is of the school of thought that marriage is mostly about in-laws who often interfere with a couple’s plan, hence Behar wanted none of that to play out in her marriage with Janowitz.
Steve Janowitz and Joy Behar have no kids together. While it is unclear if the former school teacher has any biological kids from any previous relationship, he is a stepfather to Eve Behar, a daughter whom his famous wife had from her previous marriage. Before Steve, Joy was first married to Joseph Behar. The former couple was together for more than a decade (from 1965 until 1981) before officially parting ways. Following the divorce, Joy was granted custody of their daughter Eve who has now made her a grandmom to an adorable son Luca born in 2011.
Where Is He Now?
Steve Janowitz’s stepdaughter is now a grown woman and since he and Joy Behar have no children together, they are aging well and presumed to be living their best lives! The New York City-based couple who live in a three-bedroom apartment mostly socialize by hosting friends in their home. It is unclear when exactly Janowitz retired from the classroom and how he currently earns a living. It would, however, be unsurprising if the celebrity spouse does not bother to work again in his life following his age as well as his famous wife’s career success.
An original presenter since the inception of the View in 1997, Joy has remained on the show as a co-host for more than two decades. Though she initially left the award-winning daytime program in early 2013, appearing occasionally as a guest host, Behar returned two years later as a full-time co-host. Steve Janowitz’s wife has amassed an impressive fortune from her career. Joy Behar currently enjoys a net worth that is pegged around $12 million.
