The future couple allegedly spent their childhood together in the suburbs of Chicago.
The pair, however, would lose their connection in 1988 when Fred then 11, and his family relocated to Los Angeles. The eldest child of the Savage had just landed the role of a lifetime on the small screen as Kevin Arnold in The Wonder Years.

After the end of The Wonders Years, Savage started to get less busy on the small screen, and he was working in other facets of the business. Once he entered his 20s, he met his old friend at his 22nd birthday party and she was none other than Jennifer Lynn Stone.
They then started off a relationship and got married.

The ring was from the designer Neil Lane in Los Angeles. Stone’s then-boyfriend, Savage engraved the ring with “I must have done something good.”
Apparently, it is a line from The Sound of Music, Stone’s favorite movie.

Her Husband’s Acting Career
Lynn’s husband, Fred Savage as mentioned rose to prominence through his role of Kevin Arnold in the series, The Wonder Years. He is also the recipient of People’s Choice and Young Artist Awards nominations.
His other popular roles include the Grandson in The Princess Bride and the voice behind the titular Nickelodean protagonist, Oswald.
After The Wonder Years ended its run in 1993, Stone’s husband, Savage continued to work in television and movies. He had appearances in films like Austin Powers in Goldmember, The Rules of Attraction, and Welcome to Mooseport.
He, in addition, produced and directed Phil of the Future on the Disney Channel and directed episodes of the sitcom Kitchen Confidential and Nickelodeon’s Drake & Josh.

She Is The Mother Of Three
Together, Stone and Savage are parents to three children. They had their first child, a son, Oliver Phil Savage on August 5, 2006, and their daughter, Lily Aerin Savage on May 3, 2008.
When it came to her third pregnancy, Stone and her partner, however, kept it a secret and only announced the news after the arrival of her third child. This time it was a boy who Jennifer and her actor husband named Auggie Savage. He was born on November 26, 2012.
Jennifer Lynn Stone And Her Spouse Wanted To Raise Their Children In Chicago
Despite the couple spending most of their adult life in L.A., they once said they wanted to raise their children to have the spirit of Chicago in them.
In an interview with the Chicago-Sun Times, Fred said,
“While we’ve lived in L.A. for a long time, it’s very important to us to instill in our children a sense of that Chicago spirit — and we keep it alive in our house all the time.”
Jennifer’s partner also talked about raising his kids as Chicago Cubs fans.
Are They Still Married?
The question presumably arises in light of the fact that Fred hasn’t shared any imaging of him by the side of his longtime partner Lynn.
Accordingly, there are suppositions though with no credence insinuating that the parents of three might have already separated. However, Fred last mentioned his wife, Stone on his Instagram in April 2020 posting a rather funny picture alongside an equally hilarious caption.
In any case, the childhood friends turned husband and wife are likely very much together and could be certainly so for years to come.
