While taking care of Stephen, Elaine fell in love with Stephen but he was married to his first wife Jane at that time. In 1990, Stephen left his family and finally divorced Jane in 1995.

Elaine and Stephen got married on 15th September 1995 at the Cambridge Register Office. Stephen’s family members and friends didn’t accept their relationship especially because of Elaine Mason’s attitude which was too protective, possessive and aggressive. Later, things didn’t work well and the pair ended their 11 years of relationship and got divorced in 2006. It was reported that Elaine got a huge amount of money for the settlement of their divorce.
