    For Betty White, who died on New Year's Eve less than three weeks before her 100th birthday, third time was the charm in the marriage department.

    Her first marriage to Dick Barker, a wartime romance that went sour in peacetime, ended within a year in 1945.

    From 1947 to 1949 she was married to talent agent Lane Allen, who wanted her to leave showbusiness behind, only to fall by the wayside himself.

    Ultimately she found the 'love of my life' in game show host Allen Ludden with whom she had nearly two decades of happy marriage until his death of stomach cancer in 1981 - just four years before she began starring on The Golden Girls.

    Betty never married again after losing Allen, telling Anderson Cooper in an interview a decade before her death: 'If you've had the best who needs the rest?'

    Her first marriage to chicken farmer Dick Barker lasted less than a year at the end of the Second World War, which had brought them together.
