Obviously, but unfortunately, the life of young John Carter Cash wasn’t always easy. His parents argued a lot, even around their son, and although there was never physical violence there was plenty of verbal cruelty. At one point Carter even requested her attorney put together divorce papers, before changing her mind.

But gradually things changed. And to this day, Carter is credited with doing the work that moved both herself and Cash into a more stable place. “It wasn’t until the late 1980s that they became the idyllic couple people imagined all along,” Cash biographer Robert Hilburn told The New York Times in 2013.
