Have you ever wondered who Mike and Carol Brady were married to before they found each other? When they met, they were both single parents with three children each. Of course, you know the rest… they fell in love and blended their families together. It wasn’t always easy, but it made for some entertaining television. The casting was perfect with Florence Henderson playing Carol and Robert Reed filling the role of Mike.

The show never really answered the question of who Mike and Carol were with before they met. The creator Sherwood Schwartz said that Carol was divorced but it wasn’t mentioned on the show. Divorce was still pretty taboo, especially for women, back in the ’60s and early ’70s.

She added, “I killed my husband. I was the original black widow!” That certainly does paint The Brady Bunch in a different light! What do you think? Divorce or death?
