Rick Wright married Juliette Gale in 1969, although they were together before that since the beginning of the 60`s when they were both in college.

The photo up top presently is not Rick`s first wife Juliette, rather it is a photo of Sheila Noble, who was a sometime member of the band Sigma 6 with Roger Waters and Nick Mason along with Clive Metcalf and Keith Noble. The band was short lived.
