Shortly before the future scientists was diagnosed, Hawking met a girl - Jane Wilde. They started dating. Jane wasn't scared of lover's disease. In 1965 (a year Hawking had to prepare for the funeral according to the prognosis), the pair played a wedding. They were together for 25 years, but in 1995 they divorced. And in the same year, Hawking married again. His nurse, Elaine Mason, became his wife. He has been married for 11 years, but divorced in 2006. There is a version that the second wife applied brute force against Hawking.
