Meet Matthew Lyons, Carla Hall Husband
Carla Hall is married to her husband Matthew Lyons. The chef met her husband Matthew Lyons when she was 42 years old and likely would’ve never met if it wasn’t for technology.
“We actually met on Match.com,” Carla tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “I was 42 and single. My mother would call me every Saturday, saying, ‘Carla, are you going out? Are you going to church? Are you doing anything, Are you going to the grocery store? What are you doing outside? What are you doing?'”
Carla wasn’t dating at the time but her friend convinced her to sign up on Match.com. “When he found me, it was the first day that I actually had gone onto Match.com,” she says.
After exchanging messages on the website, the couple first met when they went on their first date. After getting divorced, Lyons had been utilizing the site to meet women. He was already aware that Hall was the right choice.
Matthew said, “I remember as soon as I saw her, my immediate thought was, ‘I’m done.” When he extended his hand across the table, Hall didn’t yank it back. It moved swiftly after that.
“He kissed me,” Carla exclaimed. “I don’t know how long it had been since I’d been kissed.” Without receiving a formal proposal, the couple was married early in February of the following year. Over a month before their official wedding, an unplanned ceremony was held in the justice of the peace’s home.
“It’s like we have two dates,” Matthew added. “Feb. 12, but our wedding date is April 29.”
Furthermore, in April 2022, Carla posted on her socials to celebrate their 16th wedding anniversary. She wrote, “Happy 16th Anniversary to this incredible man, friend, and husband. The time has flown by, and I look forward to 16 more and beyond!.”
On Father’s Day 201, Carla wished her husband Father’s Day via an IG post. She wrote, “Happy Father’s Day to THIS GUY! @matthewdlyons, like the card, says “This father thing…You’re killing it!” Happy Father’s Day to ALL the dads (biological, deceased, step, stand-ins, wannabes, or however you show up).”

After graduating from undergrad and during and after law school, he worked nearly 26 years in the political and government relations arena, with a short stint working on non-branded marketing in New York.
