Michael has opened up about his early marriage to Maureen: “By my late 20s I was already married [to Maureen McGuire] and had three daughters [Isa, Holly, and Taryn]. Guys in their 20s don’t have a clue who they are as human beings. They know what they want to become – a doctor, a lawyer, a politician – but the proper study of one’s own self?”

“Men don’t get around to that until their 30s or 40s, which is roughly 10 years later than most women, who seem to know exactly who they are. Once you have a family you realise pretty quickly, because your kids become front and centre.
