Who is Elizabeth Warren's Husband? Bruce Mann is Democratic Candidate's Second Spouse and Has Always Supported Her

In a video teasing the third Democratic debate Wednesday night in Houston, top tier candidate Elizabeth Warren shared a video that featured her husband, Bruce Mann, prominently.

"You know if you want to, let's see if classrooms are open!" Warren says, holding Mann's hand and leading him through the University of Houston campus. "Classrooms are the most fun in the world."

The university is where Warren taught law school for the first time "and started dating Bruce," captions in the video state.

Warren goes on to talk about how the lack of good child care programs almost prevented her from succeeding as a working mother of two small children.

"We just cycled through one after another after another," she said. None of them worked out, and her aunt saved her by helping raise her children.

"I always think about how close I came to just getting knocked completely off the track," Warren continues, as more footage rolls of her walking with Mann holding hands.

Though not stated in the video, Mann, 69, helped Warren,70, reach many of her dreams, including running for president of the United States.

Warren met Mann six months after divorcing from Jim Warren, with whom she had two children. The two met at a work conference and soon fell in love.

"I saw this woman talking to someone, and I was just captivated," Mann told the Boston Globe. "I just walked right over. She barely noticed me. It took a couple of days."

Warren and Mann, both law professors, began working at different universities but wound up both teaching at Harvard Law School. It was Warren who proposed, in a classroom.

"It was the first time I'd seen him teach, and I was already in love with him, but watching him teach let me see one more thing about him — and that was it," Warren wrote in a 2016 Facebook post. When he asked her for her thoughts on his class afterward, she said, "What can I say? Will you marry me?" The two wed in 1980.

Mann was committed to making their long-distance relationship work and would travel on weekends. He even left a teaching job in Connecticut to help Warren raise her kids in Houston.

This past New Year's Eve after announcing she was running for president in 2020, Warren drank beer on Instagram Live and brought Mann into the shot.

"So, this my sweetie," Warren said, hugging him. "He's the best. And I'm crazy about him. I love you."

"I love you too," Mann said, before walking off to give the spotlight back to Warren.
