Age is just a number and nothing more. Arlene Silver is a make-up artist who married the legendary actor Dick Van Dyke proving that a person falls in love with the person and not their age when she decided to tie a knot with the one who was about 46 years older than her. The gap has done nothing to affect their marriage but has made them more complementary to each other.
Career and First Meeting with Her Love!!
As a make-up artist, she involved in styling the actors and other celebrities during her career. It was during the 2006 SAG Awards dinner that she first met the actor and her future husband, Dick Van Dyke. The actor was the one who approached her as he was immediately fascinated by her.

An Unconventional Romance!!
As guided by the principles of social values and norms, it might seem some taboo. The 46-year-old gap is not ordinary, and she is half his age. It’s not the first marriage of the actor though while she was getting married for the first time.
