By season five they're getting divorced; apparently the cousin only wanted to get married because her then-boyfriend gave her herpes and she didn't think anyone else would want her. {{Subverted}}, however, when they reconcile. (Except for the wedding, all of this happens off-screen, though it affects the Morgendorffers indirectly.)

He and his wife Jo Jo have too many cultural and social differences to be sustainable; he's working class English, she's a Nigerian aristocrat. Adrian says that when she told him she'd wear "traditional dress" to the wedding, only to show up in traditional ''Nigerian'' dress (whereas he'd been expecting a white dress and veil) he knew it wasn't going to last.
