Steven Hyde (Ex-Husband)
|Behind the scenes|
Left with her previous husband
Samantha "Sam" Hyde (previous surname unknown) was Hyde's wife. She was married to a man named Larry, but after Hyde went to Vegas (after catching Jackie and Kelso in a motel room) they both got drunk and were married illegally. However, Samantha showed up at the Forman's house and told Hyde that they had gotten married. This event officially ended the relationship between Hyde and Jackie. Samantha stayed in the Forman's house with Hyde for some time. Hyde's and Samantha's constant bickering and arguing drove Kitty and Red mad. In the episode My Fairy King Larry showed up and exposed Hyde and Sam's marriage as illegal. Hyde and Sam separated, and she was not seen again.
Hyde did not annul the marriage mainly because he did not want to be like his father and leave his wife.
Sam was generally disliked by the fans because her lie about being married to Hyde is what broke up Hyde and Jackie, who were perceived as soul mates.
