In August 1975, 18-year-old Jackson married his girlfriend, Carol Ann Parker, whom he met in New Orleans during one of the Jacksons' tours. Jackson and Parker have three children: 
- Valencia Caroline Jackson (born December 18, 1976)
- Brittny Shauntee Jackson (born September 4, 1978)
- Marlon David Jackson, Jr. (born September 23, 1981)
Marlon and Carol have six grandchildren, two from Valencia and four from Brittny.
Growing up, Marlon had been especially close to Michael, whom he considered the substitute for his lost twin brother, Brandon, who died at 2 months old. On July 7, 2009, he and his family offered their final eulogies for Michael, saying he was the "soul" of the family, and breaking down as he tearfully addressed the crowd: "Maybe now, Michael, they will leave you alone"  and "I would like for you to give our brother, my twin brother, Brandon, a hug for me."  Marlon fought back tears as he said, "I love you, Michael, and I'll miss you."
