Darrin Stephens is the mortal husband of Samantha Stephens, and the father of Tabitha and Adam Stephens. Because Samantha chose to marry a mortal, Darrin and Samantha often had to pay the price for it. During his marriage to Samantha, Darrin endured a lot such as being turned into a monkey, a gorilla, a goat, a goose, and even a pony. His mother-in-law, Endora, loathes him and all mortals and tried to break up the marriage a number of times, to no avail.
Darrin was initially portrayed by Dick York but due to physical issues he was replaced by Dick Sargent, for the last three seasons.
Marriage to a Witch:Edit
After dating Samantha for a short period of time, Darrin asked her to marry him without knowing that Samantha was a witch. On their wedding night, Samantha told Darrin and proved herself to have magical abilities, to which Darrin responded to with shock. Afterward, Darrin realized how much he still loved her, and couldn't give her up.
Darrin wanted a normal mortal life, because he didn't think witchcraft was a "proper" way to live, and Samantha's marriage to a mortal did not sit well with her fellow witches. Her mother, Endora was especially upset and used her witchcraft to "punish" Darrin whenever she had the opportunity.
