The pair became very close during their time together, and 13 years after they met and two years after his marriage split, in 1968, Cash proposed during a live performance in Ontario.
The couple married on March 1, 1968, in Kentucky, and had their only child together, John, on March 3, 1970.
Cash also became step-father to Carter’s daughters from her first two marriages, Carlene and Rosie, who lived with the family.
Cash continued to struggle with drug and alcohol addiction, which is a part of his story which has been showcased a great deal in films, such as Walk the Line, where Carter is seen flushing his drugs down the toilet and standing by him as he entered rehab.
