(20 August 1939 - 14 June 1945) (divorced)
Brian Aherne had a friend call Joan the night before their wedding to tell her he had cold feet and couldn't marry her. Joan told the friend to tell him it was too late to call it off, that he had better be at the alter the next morning to marry her, and he could divorce her afterwards if he wanted.
He was there at the alter and they remained married for six years, never mentioning this incident to each other.
