The couple settled in Dallas, Texas.

Lee Harvey Oswald bought a handgun and a Carcano rifle in 1963. Marina Oswald told the Warren Commission that she took photographs of Lee holing the guns. Marina split from Lee in April 1963. She was pregnant with their second child. In October Marina gave birth to a second daughter, Audrey Marina Rachel Oswald and Lee started working Texas School Book Depository. Lee stayed with Marina at a friend's house on weekends until the assassination of President Kennedy.

Marina Oswald heard about the Kennedy assassination from TV news. She was questioned at Dallas police headquarters about Lee's involvement in the assassination and the shooting of Dallas Police officer J. D. Tippit. While Marina gave testimony to the Warren Commission she under Secret Service protection. At the time Marina said Lee Harvey Oswald was guilty of shooting Kennedy.
