Herman met Gloria while he was a sophomore at Morehouse College and she was a freshman at Morris Brown College, according to The Atlantic.
The outlet reported that Herman first saw his future wife, an Atlanta native, on a street corner while he was working at a grocery store. The two went on their first date nearly a year later and hadn’t looked back since.
They wed in June 1968, a month after Gloria’s graduation, and were married for over 40 years, The Atlantic continued.
The Cains are a family of four. They welcomed daughter Melanie three years after they were married and son Vincent, their youngest child, was born in 1977.
As noted by Politico, Gloria worked as a housewife and stayed home with their children. In his book, Cain bragged about her cooking, saying her “fork-tender roast, collard greens, green beans, candied yams, hand-shucked corn, and homemade cornbread” was one of his favorite meals.
Cain loved his family. “The paramount joys in his life are his wife, Gloria, his children, and his grandchildren,” his online biography read, according to The Atlantic.
In the about section on his current website, Cain celebrated more than 50 years of marriage with Gloria, writing: “As of 2018 he and his wife Gloria have been married for 50 years, and each day celebrate their two children and four grandchildren.” He considered himself a man of “faith and family.”
