In a surprising disclosure, the legendary three-time Oscar winner, Meryl Streep, and her husband, Don Gummer, have decided to go their separate ways. The couple, renowned for maintaining a discreet and enduring relationship, discreetly concluded the romantic chapter of their marriage more than six years ago.

Their romantic journey began in 1978.

Meryl Streep and Don Gummer’s love story unfolded when they were introduced by Streep’s brother. During that period, Meryl was mourning the loss of her boyfriend, fellow actor John Cazale, who had tragically passed away from lung cancer. Their connection was immediate, culminating in their marriage just six months later, which took place at her parents’ residence.

In a 2002 interview, Meryl Streep offered insight into their relationship, emphasizing that the cornerstone of their enduring bond was “goodwill and willingness to bend — and to shut up every once in a while.”
