It was 51 years ago today (March 12th, 1969) that Paul McCartney and Linda Eastman were married in London. The couple met in 1967 at London's Bag O'Nails nightclub when Linda, already a noted rock photographer, was out for the night with members of the Animals. Paul made a point of introducing himself to Linda, and planted the seeds to one of rock n' roll's most famous and enduring relationships, which continued until Linda's death on April 17th, 1998.
McCartney remembered that the night before the couple tied the knot, tensions were running high between him and Linda: “I'm not sure that there is a perfect marriage, but yeah, we did have a row, strangely enough. And it was like, 'Oh, forget it! Let's go get married.'”
Upon marrying Linda, Paul legally adopted her six-year-old daughter Heather from her previous marriage, and eventually the couple raised three additional children, Mary (born in 1969), Stella (born in 1971), and James (born in 1977).
