Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne
Sharon Arden met Ozzy Osbourne, lead singer of the band Black Sabbath, through her father Don, who managed the band, when she was just 17. In 1979, Arden took over her dad's business and started dating Ozzy. Although some may have initially thought the Godfather of Heavy Metal and the savvy businesswoman weren’t a great match, they went on to marry in 1982 and have three children together (Aimee, Kelly, and Jack—the last two were featured often on the family's hit reality show "The Osbournes"). Ozzy also has three other children, two by blood and one adopted from a previous relationship.
The marriage faced perhaps its biggest trial when Sharon was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2002. In an interview with The Guardian, Ozzy spoke about how scared he was that he would lose his wife: "I freaked out. She's the love of my life, and she's also, like, the controller. I couldn't sleep with her for nine months because I was scared of waking up and [finding] she'd died in the night."
Although Sharon has been particularly vocal about her marriage’s ups and downs—there was a lot of drug and alcohol abuse and violence in the past—there's no doubt the hardworking couple love each other deeply and are working on keeping their relationship strong, even renewing their wedding vows in 2003 on their 20th anniversary.
Sharon told OK! Magazine, "Ozzy and I are like bread and butter, we just belong to each other. Just to lie with Ozzy and touch him and smell him means everything to me."
