After growing close, the two tied the knot in 1990, when Craig was 25 and Jane was 30. In his autobiography, All Balls and Glitter: My Life, Craig opened up about their relationship, writing: "At the beginning of 1990, Jane and I became an item. I loved her zany qualities, her appreciation for the arts, her outgoing nature, her ability to converse with anybody, her strength, her passion – even her Welsh accent."

Craig and Jane were married for two years between 1990 and 1992

Opening up about his sexuality, he added: "I was both gay and straight, so being bisexual, it wasn't a big issue for me or for her. We were two people who loved each other, coming together and wanting to have kids before it was too late."

The couple got hitched after Craig spontaneously popped the question. "Eventually, I decided I was in love with Jane and, in a rash moment, I asked her to marry me," he recalled. However, their marriage didn't last long, and just two years later, in 1992, they split after Jane began an affair with another man.

Speaking to The Mirror, Craig said of the relationship: "Things are definitely different this time. I could never really see myself remarrying, but this feels right. It feels like the right time, and I fancy sharing my life, and the rest of my life, with Jonathan."

Meanwhile, according to Craig, Jane has since remarried and has a son. The pair are reportedly still on good terms and see each other regularly.
