December 4, 1971: George Strait Married His High School Sweetheart, Norma

The two eloped on this day in Mexico, shortly before George enlisted in the U.S. Army and was shipped off to Hawaii.

“Norma and I are so blessed that we found each other…and were able to do all of this together, experience this life together, to support each other through everything, good times and bad,” George toldĀ People. “We love each other and we still like each other. A lot!”
