(3 January 1940 - 3 March 1987) (his death) (1 child)

She and her future husband grew up within blocks of each other in Brooklyn, but did not meet until 1939.

She was working as an audition pianist when she met Danny Kaye; both were working on a short-lived Broadway show. Fine also wrote the lyrics and music for it. Though the pair had never met, they discovered something in common. Kaye had once worked for Fine's father: watching his office while the dentist went to lunch. Dr. Fine also had to fire his future son-in-law for doing woodworking with his dental drills. After a whirlwind romance, they were married on 3 January 1940. Kaye proposed on the telephone while working in Florida; Fine was in New York. She made the trip to Fort Lauderdale where they were married.

Fine and Kaye had a daughter, Dena, who was born on 17 December 1946, and they remained married, although estranged circa 1947, until his death in 1987.
