Country music legend Willie Nelson is a classic example to men and women that “ride or die” partners do exist!
Nelson had been through a total of three divorces upon meeting Ann Marie (Annie) D’Angelo, the woman who would successfully prove to be the love of his life and stand by her man through thick and thin.
Nelson first became acquainted with D’Angelo back in 1986 when she worked as a makeup artist on his film Stagecoach. They were later married in 1991, keeping the energy strong and relationship stronger!
Despite battling legal issues in light of various drug charges during times of travel, D’Angelo remained Nelson’s biggest supporter, aiding in his healthy improvements and lifestyle changes. Nelson credits D’Angelo with his cleaner eating choices and elimination of a bacon-filled diet.
The happy couple has been married for over two decades, surpassing any of Nelson’s previous marriages by a landslide. While former marriages tend to be viewed as a dilemma to most men and women, Nelson says in a CNN interview with Piers Morgan, “The reason divorces are so expensive is they’re worth it.”
Calling himself an “incurable romantic,” Nelson continues by saying, “You get older, you get wiser.”
Although Nelson jokes about D’Angelo being the love of his life “for the moment,” this looks to be a love story that won’t be coming to an end any time soon.
