2 of 21: When AARP magazine asked about Betty White's previous marriages in October of 2010, White said: 'I married my first husband [Dick Barker] because we wanted to sleep together. It lasted six months and we were in bed for six months.'

The two were married between July and December of 1945. She wed actor Lane Allan in 1947. They divorced two years later. White then met game show host Allen Ludden. She was not interested in him at first.

'He bought me a beautiful ring and I threw it back at him,' she recalled. 'So he wore it on a chain around his neck.' He said, 'I'm going to wear it until you put it on your finger.'

White and Ludden married in 1963. They remained together until his death in June of 1981. The actress has no children.
