Divorced from Patty Halliwell; reunited in the afterlife
Thank You For Not Morphing
Victor Bennett was a mortal man and was once the husband of Patty Halliwell. He is the father of the original three Charmed Ones, Prue, Piper and Phoebe. Victor did not find out this wife and daughters were witches until after the birth of his first daughter. This revelation caused many problems between the couple, as Victor believed magic was dangerous and did not want his daughters to become witches.
During the time their marriage was in trouble, Patty started a relationship with Sam Wilder, her Whitelighter. Patty and Victor were briefly united after Phoebe was born, but finalized their divorce in 1977. During this time, Patty was already pregnant with Sam's daughter, Paige, whose existence she kept a secret. Victor kept playing a part in the lives of his daughters even after Patty died and strongly disagreed with how Penny was raising the girls. He eventually left the family for good after a demon attacked on Piper's fifth birthday.
However, Victor returned into the lives of his daughters about twenty years later, shortly after they had become the Charmed Ones. Although the relationship was initially strained, the girls eventually let Victor back into their lives and he became a devoted father and grandfather.
In "Four Witches and a Funeral", set in 2027, Victor has passed away due to a heart disease. In the afterlife, he reunited with his former wife Patty. Patty revealed this to Melinda in a conversation, although she asked her not to tell her parents, as Patty and Victor believed they would not understand.
