The event was a grand one with performers being Tony Bennett, Sting, and Billy Joel. Yet the best part of the wedding was Henley singing The Beatles song 'In My Life' for his beautiful bride.

Although the duo's relationship is strong and joyous, they face a challenge in their regular healthy life. Summerall is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis which is a disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the brain's communication with other body parts. Talking about it, Henley said

"She is managing – holding her own. She has good weeks and bad weeks."

The pair has been successfully managing their healthy life for so long. We hope, with each other's support, they'll do it for longer.

The first relationship he got into was with Loree Rodkin in 1974 which ended shortly and he even wrote a song named 'Wasted Time' dedicating her.

He then started dating Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks which lasted for about two years. She got pregnant with Don's child and they even thought of the name Sara if it's a daughter.

She wrote her renowned song 'Sara' about her unborn child with Henley. The song that reached a number 7 on the Billboard charts in 1979 was all about Nick's child she conceived with Henley and then aborted.

During an interview with GQ magazine in 1991,

"I believe, to the best of my knowledge, [that Nicks] became pregnant by me. And she named the kid Sara, and she had an abortion – and then wrote the song of the same name to the spirit of the aborted baby."

'I was building my house at the time, and there’s a line in the song that says, ‘And when you build your house, call me.'

Check out the video where Nick talks about her relationship with him:

The longer relationship which looked like ending up in marriage was with a 'Battlestar Galactica' actress named Maren Jensen during the early 1980s'. They got engaged and maintained a proper relationship for six years before splitting up.
