A famous artist who is better known for her marriage to the famous Oscar-winning actor Robert Redford, who appeared in The Sting and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Sibylle Szaggars surely prefers to live a mysterious life.

Originally from Germany, Sibylle, today, resides in Utah and Los Angeles in the United States with her husband. But, how did fate united Sibylle and her twenty years senior partner, two people from the complete opposite world?

The first time, these two met dates back to more than two decades ago at an art exhibition (Sundance Film Festival) where their love story kicked off from the exact moment in 1996. The actor and the painter then immediately dated.

Both Redford and Szaggars maintained their affair to be kept private apart from appearing in public events together. And, in May 2008, after twelve years of dating, the California-born actor revealed the happy news of the couples' engagement to the German magazine, Bunte. Daily Mail claims, the pair Redford proposed Sibylle in March.
The next year on 11th July 2009, the pair tied the knot in an inmate wedding ceremony in front of only 30 guests. The nuptial ceremony, moreover, took place in Hotel Louis C. Jacob in Hamburg where the founder of The Way Of The Rain, Inc. was born and bred.
Meanwhile, this is not the first marriage of Sybille neither of her husband.
Who Was Szaggars Married To?
Before the German artist met and settled down with Redford, she was already married and divorced twice. Her first marriage count with husband, Carl-Heinz Szaggars, a restaurateur, with whom she walked down the aisle in 1975.
