In 1950, Nancy met with Ronald when she was working as an actress at MGM. Two years later they married and has two children; Patti and Ron. Since that time, they were always together for approximately 54 years until death does them part.

When Ronald Reagan announced that he suffered from Alzheimer's disease to the American people in 1994, the first thing he remembered was Nancy, his beloved wife.

I have been told by a doctor, that I am one of the millions of Americans who suffer from Alzheimer's disease. I only wish Nancy spared from this painful experience.
- He wrote, in a letter.

Nancy has focused all her life on Reagan during the last 40 years. The death of her husband put an end to what was once portrayed by actor Charlton Heston as the greatest love story in the history of the American presidency.

Ron (Reagan's nickname) and Nancy were active together as a Hollywood star when they first met. However, their date is entirely politically motivated.
