Victoria Osteen is a married lady. She tied the knot with her boyfriend turned husband, Joel Osteen. The duo is together as a married couple for more than three decades now, and we will talk more about their marriage on this page today. But before that, let us know who Victoria and her husband are as a person.
Born on March 28, 1961, in Huntsville, Alabama, near the Marshall Space Flight Center, Vicotria was raised by her father, Donald Iloff, and mother, Georgine Iloff. Her dad worked for General Electric as a mathematician, and he was a part of the company's Saturn rocket project. On the other hand, her mom used to run the jewelry shop called Iloff Jewelers.
Talking about Joel, he was brought into this world by his parents John and Dolores Osteen. Born on March 5, 1963, he grew up with his four siblings in Houston. His late father was the founding pastor of Lakewood Church. Furthermore, he had a TV show, John Osteen, that aired for 16 years. Now, let us talk about Victoria married life with her beau Joel.
Victoria Osteen and her husband Joel Osteen first crossed paths back in 1985. Things between them started after they met in a jewelry shop.

Precisely speaking, Joel walked into a jewelry shop, which happens to be Victoria's mother's jewelry store. He went there to buy a battery for his watch and encountered Victoria, who was working behind the counter of that shop, as noted by News Amo Mama.
When they met, Victoria was studying psychology at the University of Houston, but within two years, she dropped out to marry Joel, and following that, the seeds of her vocation for the ministry blossomed. Indeed, she left her University education to be with her beau.
After Joel's father died, Victoria founded the Lakewood Church Women’s Ministry and became a co-pastor to the congregation.
