Dolly Parton: a vibrant, lovely, full of life American icon. We've spent our lives growing up with Dolly, and falling in love with her inspirational singing, passion-filled acting, and animated on-screen performances. She is someone who is respected, admired, and adored by all who know her. This country star becomes even more beautiful as the years "gracefully" pass.
There is simply no one else who shines quite like Dolly!
When we think of this famous woman, we think of her successful life in front of the camera and on stage. However, Dolly Parton has had a marriage which few people know many details about - and that's because she and her husband have always enjoyed keeping their private life behind the scenes.
Dolly Parton has always been very private about her marriage to businessman Carl Dean. However, these two love birds have been married for over 50 years, and remain best friends to this very day. Dolly's sister, Stella Parton, recently shared a bit of insight into the successful marriage of this "match made in heaven."
"He thinks of all that (public stuff) as foolishness. But he doesn't say anything about us doing it because ‘That's what the girls do.' That's the way he says it."
The star may enjoy life in the limelight, while Carl enjoys his backstage privacy, but the bottom "happy marriage" line is that this husband and wife allow each other to be who they are, and they appreciate the differences in one another.
Dolly also spoke with Closer Weekly, sharing what many people would consider to be the key to a healthy and happy marriage,
"He really is my best friend."
This inspirational couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary just this past year - and what did they do to mark this exciting marriage milestone, you ask? They renewed their vows of course!
