Quote:

On Nov.27,1582,Shakespeare recieved a license to marry Anne Hathaway,the daughter of a local farmer.The two families new each other,but the details of the relationship between William and Anne have been a source of speculation.At the age of 18,William was young to marry,while Anne at 26 was of normal marrying age.The marriage appears to have been hurried,and the birth of their first child,Susanna,in May 1583 came only six months after marriage.Some scholars have suggested that William may have been forced to marry Anne because she was pregnant. However,birth and marriage records indicate that many women in England at that time were already pregnant before they married,and so Shakespeare's marriage was not unusual.Early in 1585,Anne gave birth to twins,Judith and Hamnet.The record of baptism marks the start of an important gap in the documentary evidence of Shakespeare's life.
