Constantine Yankoglu is an American actor well-known for his role in The Eight Men Out (1988). More to his fame is his marriage to actress, model, comedian, and writer Patricia Heaton.

Constantine Yankoglu Met Patricia Heaton at a Drama Class
There are numerous stories jugging the internet that the former couple had met as young high school students. However, according to a documentary on her biography, the Everybody Loves Raymond actress said their journey of love began when they were in drama school honing their acting skills.
Although it is difficult to state the year or how they started, it may be at the time that Heaton moved to New York to study with drama teacher William Esper.
In 1984 at the time that Heaton was 26 years old and Yankoglu was about 34, the former couple became married and remained in it for the next 3 years until the decision to part ways.
What Led To Their Divorce?
In 1987, Constantine and his then-wife Heaton opted for a divorce. Heaton would later claim that there was no compatibility in the marriage.
Even though it is difficult to lay hands on how the divorce was on Constantine, Heaton claimed their splitting led to her feeling like a failure, especially because of her family’s roots in the Catholic Church.
Also, on the part of Yakoglu’s ex-wife, the divorce led to many things in her life that include drinking and doubt in God. The Hollywood Walk of Famer experimented on new age religion, later renounced religion, and along the line found her way to become a Presbyterian. In all of it, Patricia wanted to heal so she started therapy.
As of June 2017, the marriage had been annulled by the Catholic Church.
The same year the former couple divorced, Heaton made her first appearance in the chorus of Don’t Get God Started (1987). On his part and a year after the splitting, Constantine played the role of a New Jersey Fan in Eight Men Out (1988).
Where is Constantine Yankoglu Since His Marriage Failed?
The now 70 years old American actor cum former husband of Heaton has kept his life away from the public’s eye since 1988 when he appeared in a film. Hence, there’s barely any information about his career, romantic life, or whether he has any children.

As a result of her contributions to the acting scene, Heaton was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012 and won several other distinguished awards.
As regards her personal life, the Daytime Award-winning actress and the writer of Patricia Heaton’s Food For Family & Friends: 100 Favorite Recipes For A Busy, Happy Life (2018) became married to a British actor, director, and producer David Hunt in 1990. The pair met in the early times of her divorce from Yankoglu.
Their first year of marriage was not rosy and was accompanied by constant arguing. Time passed and they adjusted to a happier couple.
When Constantine’s ex was 34, she and her husband Hunt made a decision to start a family and in 1993 when she was 35 years old, they had their first child, a son called Sam. She later had a total of 4 sons.
