Though it is unclear how they first met, looks like they were head over heels in love and remained together until Marvin's death. Marvin, who hails from Pioltello, Italy, walked down the aisle with the love of his life in the same place as it seems he was very attached to his roots. The two shared a peaceful life in Milan as Marvin focused on his acting career post hanging up his boots in boxing.  Following his retirement, Marvin acted in films like ‘Indio’ and ‘Indio 2’, ‘Brutal Bonanza’, ‘Geno's Plan’, ‘Lethal Lunch Date’, ‘Black Market Wedding’, and the video game ‘Fight Night: Round 3.’

Marvin and Kay seemed very much in love whenever they were spotted in public. He always made sure he made red carpet appearances with his wife and even after 21 years of wedlock, the love did not fade away.
