Elizabeth Taylor 1932-2011

The Many Loves of Elizabeth Taylor

Famously married eight times (twice to Richard Burton), she never gave up her search for a soulmate

RICHARD BURTON

Oct. 10, 1975–July 29, 1976
Though their fiery first marriage fizzled, Taylor and Burton (who had adopted a daughter, Maria, born in 1961) gave wedded bliss another shot – briefly. Wags joked that Burton simply wanted to be near all the jewelry he had given his ex. "Even though there were rough times, I wouldn't give up one minute of my time with Richard Burton," Taylor wrote in her autobiography.
