She's incredibly tolerant. Possibly a candidate for sainthood.

And then, after 50 years, it became known that Alan Rickman and Rima Horton got married. But it was impossible to establish the exact date of this event. Alan just reported in spring of 2015 that they had recently become a husband and wife.

We are married. It was great, because no one was there.
