There is a belief that staying with someone who has experienced a similar ordeal can help you heal faster. And the example of it is Elizabeth Shatner who married the person who was well-acquainted with the sorrow of losing loved one as she experienced during the late nineties. Elizabeth lost her husband Michael in 1997, and when she found William Shatner lost her better half in 1999, she came to his aid and now shares a lifelong bond.

Grief: A Reason of Bond!!

There is proverb which reads “Happiness divides, but Grief unites” and this is what exactly happened in the life of Elizabeth. She was facing a traumatic situation when she lost her husband, Michael Glenn Martin unexpectedly on 3rd August 1997 and then she found the shoulder of William Shatner to lean on. William also had been through the same phase when he lost his third wife Nerine Kidd to accidental drowning in August 1999.

The duo, who shared the grief of losing their partner, became an aide to each other. The couple got married in February 2001. The couple who possesses a massive age difference of 27-years have developed a strong bond, and after more than 15 years into the relationship, they are still going strong.

While talking to Piers Morgan, he said,

"My wife Elizabeth is one of the great wives—in fact, the greatest wife I’ve known of anybody"

 He further added,

"She’s understanding. She’s loving. She’s patient. She’s her own woman. She’s beautiful. She’s passionate."

Elizabeth is the fourth wife of James T. Kirk from 'Star Trek' as he was previously married to Gloria Rand (1956-1969) and Marcy Lafferty (1973-1996) which ended in divorce. 

Career and Net Worth:

Elizabeth was pretty much behind the media lens, but as soon as she married 'Star Trek' star William Shatner, she became a public figure overnight. As per her official site, she is a photographer and Digital Artist.

Some wiki sources suggest that Elizabeth is a professional horse trainer, which is one of the reasons that she got together with William who also shares the love of horses.

According to the people.com, Elizabeth is one-time high school homecoming queen which is evident given her beauty and elegance.

Nothing more is known about her net worth, but she is self-sufficient and doesn’t rely on the $100 million fortunes of William.
