Celebrity Couples That Are Still Together
GEORGE STRAIT & NORMA STRAIT | 51 YEARS
Country music singer-songwriter George Strait was so in love with Norma Voss, his high school sweetheart, that they decided to elope. Their union took place in Mexico in December 1971. That exact year, the United States Army enlisted him as an infantryman.
As a member of the 25th Infantry Division at Hawaii’s Schofield Barracks, Strait played with the Army-sponsored Rambling Country band. While still in Hawaii in October 1972, the Straits had their first kid named Jennifer. Sadly, she died in a passenger car accident, and to cope with the heartbreaking loss, the “Amarillo By Morning” crooner made music in her stead.
