Gillis, White marry

21 Sep, 1996

Gillis marries White (and takes her last name). The pair soon begins telling the press they are siblings. Jack White says:

When you see a band that is two pieces, husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend, you think, “Oh, I see…” When they’re brother and sister, you go, “Oh, that’s interesting.” You care more about the music, not the relationship — whether they’re trying to save their relationship by being in a band. You don’t think about that with a brother and sister. They’re mated for life. That’s what family is like.
