Records have it that they dated for 29 years beginning in the year 1982 before exchanging marital vows in August 2011 in a low key marriage ceremony. Their wedding had in attendance mainly their dear ones.

A lot of reasons were given by Joy on why their relationship lasted so long. Top on the list was that she didn’t want to get married while same-sex marriage was illegal in New York so she had to wait for it to become legal. Secondly, she got tired of asking for senior discounts for her boyfriend and for his constantly being referred to as “that old guy” by her relatives.

In addition, she also revealed that she didn’t want to be in a marital relationship with Steve while his parents were still alive. Weird right? She opined that she wasn’t cut out for all the drama’s that come with inlaws in marriages and wanted Steve Janowitz’s parents out of the picture before they took their forever vows.

On the other hand, Steve is not Joy’s first husband, she was previously married to Joseph Behar with whom he had a daughter named Eve Behar. Eve was born on 26 November 1970 in Long Island, New York. However, in the course of time, they split as she would come to begin a relationship with Steve Janowitz in 1982.


Around 2009, the two got engaged as Joy Behar was seriously considering marriage, however, when the pressures of what married life would be like became enormous on her, they called off the engagement but Steve remained true to her. Two years later, they finally took their forever vows and have been together since then.

The couple has no children together neither does Janowitz have a record of having a daughter from a previous marriage. At best, Steve is the stepfather of Eva Behar who is now a mother, thus making Joy and Steve grandparents.

Eva got married to Alphonso Anthony Scott in the year 2007 and bore a son named Luca Behar Scotti on the 28th of February 2011. Anthony is a physician assistant who trained at Touro College and now works at the Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan.

The retired teacher and his wife who is a comedian are having a time of their lives. The couple lives in a 1,400 square foot apartment situated on the sixth floor of their building in new york.
