About Carol Brady
Carol Tyler Martin's first husband disappeared without an explanation, leaving her to raise their three girls on her own. Did he die? Did he divorce her? We may never know. What we do know is that Carol Ann is the perfect match for Michael Paul Brady. Together they make a perfectly symmetrical family.
For her time, Carol is a liberated woman (Maybe that's what scared off her first husband?). Although she chooses to be a stay-at-home mom, she is anything but a housewife. She's a freelance writer, a sculptor, a political activist and a singer. She also organizes plays and PTA events while keeping dinner on the table. Some of her favourite things are a large terra-cotta vase, dangly earrings and singing in church. She also loves telling corny jokes and finding clever ways of zinging her husband.
