In an interview at the time, Ampaw disclosed the challenging circumstances under which he got married.

His wife was the financial backbone of their family for two years after their marriage.

Aside from their financial difficulties, lawyer Ampaw and his wife had to wait for ten years before they were gifted with children.
Maurice Ampaw's wife was a dressmaker and a fashion designer.
