Bob Saget's first wife Sherri Kramer was his high school sweetheart.

Sherri Kramer was Bob Saget's high school sweetheart, per Bustle. They started dating when he was 17. Nine years later, they got married in 1982.

She knew Bob way before America did. In fact, Sherri was there for him during his early days as a comedian in Hollywood.

During their 15-year marriage, they welcomed three children together before getting a divorce in 1997. It's unknown exactly why they split; however, Sherri was the one who filed. She cited "irreconcilable differences" in court papers, according to a 1997 Sun-Sentinel article.

Furthermore, he also called Aubrey, Lara, and Jennifer "the best thing I've done, the highest thing in my whole life," to Parade, "If everything in my life is raised to the level of how great they are, then that would be a great thing to have achieved," he continued.

Fortunately, all three daughters appear to have remained close with both of their parents. They also seemed to have a good relationship with Bob's second wife. It's unknown if Sherri ever remarried; however, Bob was single for 18 years following their split. “I didn’t think I’d have a relationship again," he told Closer Weekly.

Following Bob's death, Sherri did not give a statement. However, Kelly and his three daughters did.
