Through socialite and Taos resident Mabel Dodge Luhan, Higgins met Marion Koogler McNay in the early 1930s. They married in 1937 and moved to San Antonio to live at Sunset Hills, now the McNay Art Museum. Despite Marion McNay's effort to help Higgins financially, and therefore allow him to concentrate on his artistic work, he grew discontented with living away from New Mexico. Higgins and McNay divorced in 1940.
