On March 23, 1931 Olive married thirty-one year old Theodore "Teddy" Spector. He was a handsome, six foot tall stockbroker from New Jersey. Teddy wanted Olive to give up her career but she refused. Just one year after their wedding she filed for divorce. In an interview she said "Ted wanted me to quit the stage but I simply cannot do it. I have been in the profession quite a while and I love it. We could not agree on the subject, so we decided the only thing to do was separate." A few months later Olive was shocked when Teddy was accused of being a bigamist. He had never legally divorced his first wife Pearl before marrying Olive.
