Morgan was married to Paula Dietz, who in 1998 succeeded him as editor of The Hudson Review. Morgan later married Constance Canfield, with whom he had two sons. The Esquire article, "Seth Morgan's Last Ride" (February 1, 1991), recounts the description by one of those sons, Seth Morgan, of his mother and childhood: Morgan stated Canfield was "an alcoholic beauty who drank herself to death in 1964", and he claimed that her coldness was to blame for his brother's suicide (by leaping to his death off the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge). Morgan also believed that he inherited what he called his "addictive personality" from his alcoholic mother. He later said that he harbored intense bitterness towards women because of Canfield's treatment of him and his siblings, and he spent years "planning the strategic degradation of women".
