Mary Cooper Didn’t Remarry And Stayed Single Until The End Of TBBT

Mrs. Cooper stayed single throughout her life!

Mary Cooper, the mother of boy genius Sheldon Cooper, was married to George Cooper Sr. for 20 years before his sudden death from a heart attack.

Key Takeaways

  • Mary Cooper didn’t remarry and stayed religious even after the de*th of her husband.
  • Sheldon’s dad was said to have cheated on his mother, but it was later revealed that it was actually Mary herself.

Since “Young Sheldon” ended, many fans of the show have been curious to find out whether she remarries.

If you have watched “The Big Bang Theory,” you know the answer: Mrs. Cooper stayed single throughout her life.

Often described by Leonard as Sheldon’s “kryptonite,” she didn’t even have a lover until the end of season 9 when she met Leonard’s dad, Alfred Hofstadter.

After meeting Alfred, they quickly bond over their mutual dislike of Beverly (Leonard’s mom) and overexpressed admiration of each other’s beliefs.

When they had to leave the restaurant after a hot debate with Beverly, they decided to share a cab since they were staying in the same hotel.

On the other hand, their sons suspected that they hooked up since their phone was switched off, but in the next episode, it was revealed that they didn’t sleep together but planned to see each other.

This was the only love interest of Mary, except her husband. She has stayed a one-woman-man, even after her partner expired.

Meanwhile, there is even a central plot point in the Big Bang Theory: George Sr cheats on Mary.

So, Did It Really Happen?

No! George didn’t cheat on Mary, as said by Sheldon in Big Bang Theory.

In season 10, the theoretical physicist explains to Penny why he knocks three times, saying,

I was 13 years old, and on spring break from college. My mother was in bible study, I walked in the house expecting to find it empty, and I heard a sound coming from my parent’s bedroom.

Adult Sheldon continued,

When I opened the door, I saw my father having relations with another woman…. We locked eyes, I ran to my room, and we never, ever spoke of it.

However, in the prequel series, in season 7, episode 4, it turns out that young Sheldon walked on his parents and thought of her “cosplaying” mother as another woman.

His assumption was fueled when Mary was overheard asking George, “Are you sure your wife won’t come home?” and George said, “Oh, Helga!”

But, it was his folks all along who were role-playing, thinking no one was home.

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • Mary Cooper is a devout born-again Christian from East Texas.
  • Her comment before Amy and Sheldon’s wedding inspired their Super Asymmetry theory that led to their noble prize.
