The 51 years old Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the US relishes a happy married life with Marie Louise Gorsuch.

They have been in a married relationship for more than two decades and have welcomed two daughters; Emma (1999) and Belinda (2001). In 2014, both of their daughters were listed as “lay servers” for St. John’s Episcopal Church.
