17. Susie Essman and Jim Harder
Susie Essman married the commercial real estate broker at age 53 back in 2008, and their meeting was pure happenstance. 

They met through Harder's brother, Michael, during Thanksgiving weekend. "Mike had never bothered introducing us. He never thought I’d go for Jimmy because he was divorced and had four kids and lived 150 miles from New York," she shared in an interview.

"He was a person who was warm and loving and real - he didn’t know who I was or that I was on this hit show. He didn’t even have HBO, or cable for that matter."

Harder confirmed that the instant connection was mutual, where he told The New York Times, "I just kept noticing her. People had told me that she was the funniest person they had ever met, but when I met her, there was a loving and warm side of her that came across almost instantly.”
