step 3. Alan Louise Shepard: Hitched Up until Death Hands down the most criticized couple of the group, mostly for Alan’s indiscretions and Louise’s grace and poise in the face of it all. While most people jump to the conclusion that she was acting (while silently in torture) or that they weren’t happy, that’s just not the accurate picture. Of course Louise was not fond of her husband’s indulgence but she understood and respected it. Unfortunately, some men just have incredibly high testosterone and a problematic necessity for a release. Louise was able to overlook this and still be a devoted and supportive wife to her husband because she knew that it was not personal. Alan had much more rock star status then the other Mercury astronauts because he was famous for being the first American man in space. He was a top man and though it may not seem like it to women, he genuinely loved and respected his wife. For him, the cookies were just random treats and he did not indulge in mistresses or emotional affairs. After 53 years of marriage and 3 daughters together, the two died just 5 weeks apart and their ashes were scattered together. The photos of them together show their genuine happiness and deep love.
No matter if she got before said “a partner – men – try a rare, wonderful animal, a pleasure to wait and you may like,” she are the person who registered having breakup immediately following 24 many years of a loving matrimony to follow careerist endeavors
4. Gus Betty Grissom: Hitched Up until Demise The couple that ended too quickly. These two were a true pair. They supported each other in their youth, making many sacrifices to reach their dreams. Every year Betty attended NASA’s annual remembrance day for Apollo 1 until last year when it was announced that it would be her last attendance due to declining health. By all accounts they were two peas in a pod, deeply devoted in love which was only further proven by Betty’s refusal to get remarried. Though Gus did indulge in a cookie and Betty got that letter it was no where near symbolic of their relationship. Gus didn’t seek other women and he was a very family-oriented man who always made it a point to find time to spend with his family. They had 2 sons together. The photos of them together show their companionship and compatibility.
A number of means, these two have been made for each almost every other and their love experienced also demise
5. Scott Rene Carpenter: Separated The couple that probably should not have gotten divorced. Though Rene always spoke very highly of Scott and marriage, it wasn’t enough to overcome her careerism bug. Initially supported by her loving husband of 4 children together (including the 1 who was lost), at some point Rene’s priorities transferred from family to career and their marriage was never able to recover. When her career took off, people started to know her name over her husband’s despite the fact that he was 1 siti top 10 incontri americani of the original Mercury 7. What a way to emasculate your husband. It’s no wonder this marriage fell apart with Rene wanting to focus solely on goals outside of the home which neglected her husband and children. The sad wonder is if Scott ever got over Rene breaking his heart. She told him that her career and her pursuits as a controversial journalist meant more to her than their marriage and more than what he was doing in the Space program for America and the world. It was clear that she had been bitten by the feminism bug when she stated that her new work life came with 3 main priorities post-divorce: (other than work) children, friends and gentlemen callers. Her statement at the time, “There may be four or five men in my life at one period.” showed her obsession with attention and need for companionshipmonly referred to as “JFK’s favorite astronaut wife”, the spotlight really went to Rene’s head and she couldn’t get enough of it once she had been exposed. In the end her new life didn’t seem to be what she wanted after all, as she eventually remarried and retired. On the flip side, Scott remarried several times with a total of 4 marriages and 3 divorces. The last marriage was shortly before his death. It seems that no woman was able to hold his interest as long as Rene had, what a shame. The photos of them together seem to display their dynamic: He was a happily married man with his eyes set on her and she was a confused and misguided eras of the far horizon.
