The husband and wife bought 21.5 acres of riverfront property located in Louisiana on the 17th of July, 2013. Sources revealed that they paid $50,000 for the piece of land.
Today, Phil is undoubetedly is a millionaire, but everyone gets surprised hearing the fact that he had none of this wealth when he was young. It's not even that he became rich overnight. His immense hard work, passion, and love for his work have brought him to this height. Phil was bought up in a low-income family with seven siblings. He had a very unpleasant childhood full of big dreams but decidedly fewer assets to fulfill and pursue all those dreams.
Not giving up in his dreams, he started as a football player in his school days, worked as a teacher, and also as a commercial fisher just for the sake of earning money. Soon he left all his jobs and decided to work in his passion, which was hunting. Life started to fall in track after he founded his own business, Duck Commander company. He, with the help of his family and siblings, turned the small business into a multi-million dollar business. Later, they converted it to a reality TV show, Duck Dynasty.

The one big happy family also had a few dark days in their lives. Phil was addicted to alcohol and other bad habits, but all thanks to his wife, she didn't leave him in his hard times, which she could have done quickly giving valid reasons, but instead stayed by his side and helped him to battle against his addiction.
As of now, the couple is in a happy relationship blessed with four children. They have sons named Jase Robertson (born 1969), Willie Robertson (born 1972), Jules Jeptha Robertson ( born 1978), and Alan Robertson.
Every relationship has to walk through the rollercoaster ride. Same in the case of Phil and his wife. He once accused his wifey of cheating on him. Afterward, his spouse Marsha almost had committed suicide.
