Dolly Parton and Carl Dean’s love story

Dolly Parton and her husband, Carl Dean, have been married for almost six decades since their May 1966 wedding in Ringgold, Georgia. The couple chose early on in their union not to have children, with Dean also deciding to keep a low profile and stay out of the public eye.

Parton has said that her marriage to Dean has lasted so long because of her husband’s choice to stay away from her career. Their love story began in 1964 when Parton moved to Nashville to pursue her singing and songwriting career. They met at a laundromat when Parton was 18 and Dean was 22, and they haven’t parted ways since.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Parton said that the secret to their marriage was simply making sure her husband kept his privacy and that he wasn’t exposed unnecessarily to the entertainment industry. She said that Dean had chosen her, not her career, and so she respected his desire to lead a quieter, more private life.
