After the death of her third husband and learning his business partner had squandered all her money, she went back to work on a TV series for several years.
Day married a trombone player at age 17, who beat her and was psychopathically jealous. She left him after son Terry was born, 8 February l942. At 22 she married a saxophonist in "Les Brown's Band of Renown." Her third marriage on 23 April 1951 was to Marty Melcher, who mismanaged her money. Her fourth marriage was to 11-year-younger Barry Comden, an ex-restaurateur. With Hotchner, she wrote an autobiography in 1975, "Doris Day, Her Own Story."
Always an animal lover, by 1993, Day was happily retired on an 11-acre estate in Carmel, CA with six housekeepers and a passel of dogs and cats, a pet foundation and animal league to look after, and a partner in a Carmel hotel.
