Hawking, Wilde marry


Hawking and Jane Wild at their weddingDespite his ailing health, Hawking continues his education at Cambridge. He marries Jane Wilde, an acquaintance from his years at Oxford. Wilde agrees to marry him in spite of his life threatening condition.

I loved Stephen so much that nothing could deter me from wanting to marry him: I would cook and wash and shop and make a home for him, dismissing all my own previous ambitions which were now insignificant by comparison with the challenge before me.
