Sarah Lancashire and Her Husband

Sometimes love comes with several twists and turns, and Sarah's love life pretty much sums it up. 

The news of Sarah dating her now-husband, Peter Salmon, broke out during 2000 when she was at the top of her career in the show biz and had wooed thousands of viewers with her incredible talent. 

One of the people wooed by her charm happens to be Peter Salmon, the BBC1 controller. But what made their love story stay up in the headlines for very long was that Peter was with his wife, mother to his three children, when he had fallen for the actress.

Although before their relationship took the media by storm, they were well-acquainted with each other for almost five years. With their budding romance, Peter's marriage with his former wife, Penny Watt, crumbled.

Sarah's Past Relationship  

The Coronation Street actress was first married to Gary Hargreaves, whom she met when she was only eighteen. With Gary, it was her first seriously committed relationship.

But only after she became pregnant with her first child with Gary did the two get married. And later welcomed their second son in 1989.  

As the years began passing by, Sarah's relationship with Gary started weakening, leading them to separate after ten years of their holy union. 

She once also confessed that her decade-long unsuccessful marriage was a huge source of her 'unhappiness.' But her second marriage turned out to be quite the opposite. 

Expressing her utter happiness and fulfillment she felt after marrying her second husband, she remarked, 

I've never known what it feels like to wake up in the morning full of the joys of spring and wander through the day feeling capable of coping.

Now that she has been living the life of happiness that she barely thought she woud ever be blessed with, her life indeed seems more than perfect.
