Frida was 15 when she set eyes on Diego. Two of the world’s most recognized 20th-century artists came together. He was a Cubist who reinvented Mayan mural art and she’s known for her magical realism folk art portraits. They met as members of the Mexican Communist Party in 1927 and married in 1929. It was eccentric to start. Diego had two common-law wives.
They were both unfaithful to one another but reconciled. By 1939, Diego filed for divorce. In 1940, they remarried but retained ongoing extramarital relationships. It’s not your conventional love story.

Barbara Walters and Merv Adelson's second chance
The once-media power couple, Merv Adelson and the late Barbara Walters met at the peak of both of their careers. Barbara Walters, so prominent as a journalist, SNL ran a long-running skit in which Gilda Radner parodied the famous “20/20” celebrity journalist. Merv owned one of television’s most well-known production companies.
They married in 1981 when Merv was CEO of Lorimar Television. Just a few years later, the power couple split. They tried again in 1986. But sometimes giving it a second shot doesn’t work. Their marriage was strained by bi-coastal careers. It fell apart and divorce followed in 1992.
