On March 5, 1949, she was united in marriage to Veryl Matthiesen at the American Lutheran Church in Jasper. Following their marriage, they moved to a farm near Ruthton, Minnesota. One year later, they returned to the Jasper area and continued to farm there. During this time, Marian worked at Blue Mound Inn in Luverne, Minnesota for a few years and then Palisade Manor in Garretson, South Dakota. In 1983, they retired and moved into Jasper.
