Darrin Stephens is the husband of Samantha Stephens, a mortal and the father of Tabitha and Adam Stephens. Because Samantha chose to marry a mortal and betray her kin by doing so, 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 and 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 WitchEdit
After having been with the beautiful and charming Samantha for an unknown period of time, Darrin made a proposal not knowing of Samantha's true nature as a witch. Later on, Samantha proved herself to have magical abilities, to which Darrin responded to with hostility. He ran away from her but later returned and went through with the marriage. Samantha's marriage to a mortal did not sit well with her fellow witches, and not one agreed with her choice. Her mother Endora attempted to break up the marriage shortly after it had happened, to no avail. Samantha's decision was still, and she would not budge.
