Arnaz and Ball's marriage was turbulent due to Arnaz's use of alcohol and womanizing. Ball first filed for divorce in September 1944, but returned to him before the interlocutory decree became final. Several years later, Arnaz and Ball had two children, who also went into acting - Lucie and Desi Arnaz, Jr. The couple ultimately divorced in 1960.
