About Carol[]

Carol Tyler was once engaged to Thomas Patrick O'Malley, but they did not marry. Her first husband, Daniel Alan Martin, disappeared without an explanation, leaving her to raise their three girls, Marcia, Jan, and Cindy, on her own. She is the perfect match for Michael Paul Brady. Together they make a perfectly symmetrical family.

For her time, Carol is a liberated woman. 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 favorite 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.
