Unlike many Senators, Carper commutes over 100 miles to work every day on Amtrak, going from his home in Wilmington, DE to Washington, D.C. Though he says this has helped his family live a normal life, we’re curious to know more about them and how they deal with his demanding career.

Just who is Tom Carper’s wife, and what is their life like together? Here are 5 things to know about Martha Ann Stacy.

The couple married in 1985 on New Year’s Eve, tying the knot just after midnight!


2. She is his second wife.

Carper was married to Diane Beverly Isaacs, the former Miss Delaware, from 1978 to 1983. He admitted in a 1998 interview that he had hit his then-wife; Isaacs, in a New York Post article, said that Carper hit her “so hard he gave her a black eye” and that his stepchildren “were slapped around and bruised... for doing such things as leaving the family dog on the bed.”

4. They are Presbyterians.

The family belongs to the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, DE. Carper is one of only 16 Senators to practice this religion.

5. She has stock in pharmaceuticals.

Though Carper vowed to fight the opioid epidemic, his wife apparently owns over $185,000 worth of stock in five pharmaceutical companies. Back in May, Stacy purchased between $1,000 and $15,000 worth of stock in CVS Health. She also owns stock in Abbott Laboratories, “the nation’s second-largest opioid distributor,” as well as stock in opioid producer Pfizer.
