Side by side, Noam Chomsky was married twice and never had a divorce.

That said, he has three children from his two marriages. And on a rather non-similar note, Noam Chomsky has won multiple awards since his career started, including but not limited to Guggenheim Fellowship for Humanities, US & Canada, and Sydney Peace Prize.
