We couldn’t find when and where Marvin and Sheena tied the knot, if they ever did, he talks about his girlfriend on this 2018 article.
That is a head-scratcher, indeed but we found out how difficult it was leaving their daughter Ari (born in May 2015) at home when he has to play.
“It’s very difficult to leave [Ari] now because she understands I have to leave, but she’s not sure when I’m going to come back or how long I’m going to be gone,” added Williams. “That becomes very difficult, but thank goodness for FaceTime. I don’t know how parents did it in this profession 10 years, 20 years ago when you couldn’t see your kid every day. Skype and FaceTime do change the game a little bit, but it is difficult to have to leave her.”
