Besides his marriage to Fitzgerald, Limbaugh was married to three other women, the first three ending in divorce. He does not have any children. He was first married at the age of 26 to Roxy Maxine McNeely, a sales secretary at radio station WHB in Kansas City, Missouri. The couple married at the Centenary United Methodist Church in Limbaugh’s hometown of Cape Girardeau on September 24, 1977. McNeely filed for divorce in March 1980, citing “incompatibility”.
