There was such an intense love between them at that time that they got engaged and then married in a couple of months. The wedding was held in the Crystal Room of Beverly Hills Hotel.

The couple could not bear children since it was said that Thomas had undergone a vasectomy before about which he had not disclosed to Karen before the wedding.
