Netizens have been keeping tabs on Matthew Adlai Greenfield thanks to his wife, Molly Jong-Fast, an American writer, author, journalist, podcaster, and political commentator. He is the father of three children; Max, Beatrice, and Darwin. There are few details about his children, but his eldest child recently joined college.
On education, Matthew Adlai Greenfield must have gone through among the best high schools to get himself to Yale, where he graduated; he is also a Master’s and P.H.D degrees holder from the same institution.
Career and Net worth
Matthew Greenfield worked as an English assistant professor at the College of Staten Island, Willowbrook, in the early 2000s. Years later, he became a professor and taught English literature at the City University of New York. He also wrote poems and was an editor of Edmund Spenser: Essays on Culture and Allegory.
His wife once said that it was stupid for him to work as a college professor, so she helped him move to finance. So, it is unclear if he still works in finance or has returned to teaching English literature.
Matthew worked as a professor for several years, so he made money out of it, but his net worth is unclear. Besides, his wife has made a good fortune from her career as an author and journalist; with it, she can support her family.
Matthew Greenfield’s wife grew up in a family of academics, as her father was an author and a teacher and her mother was a feminist author. When Matthew’s wife was a teenager, she was bulimic; this was prompted by boys who told her that she was too fat and so she kept eating.
Molly followed in her mother’s footsteps and has written two books; a memoir, Girl and Normal Girl, and The Social Climber’s Handbook. She worked as an editor at The Daily Beast and is currently a contributing writer at The Atlantic and Vogue. In her work as a writer, Molly tries to be different from her mom, who likes writing on erotic issues.
Matthew’s wife likes to post political-related content on her Instagram account and on Twitter; most of her tweets are on political issues. As a podcaster, Matthew Greenfield’s wife hosted The New Abnormal, a Daily Beast podcast, in 2020.
How he met his wife
Matthew met Molly in June 2002 through a website. They then went on dates, and on their first date, Molly was attracted to Matthew’s intellect, which made her fall for him more. After several dates, Matthew Greenfield proposed, and they tied the knot the following year. The couple has been together for almost two decades and supports each other.
Matthew is not as active on social media as his wife, who posts often. Furthermore, he does not have any active accounts on social media. His wife is active on Instagram, followed by 136k users, and has posted 10k times. She is also on Twitter, where she tweets on health, politics, and other general issues.
