In the many years since his rise as the godfather of heavy metal, Ozzy has constantly had his loving wife by his side through thick and thin. Their marriage is nothing short of a real-life example of how a couple has to learn to get through things. About their enduring marriage, Sharon told the portal that she and the rockstar have managed to keep it going because they “never gave up” on each other. She also said that it wasn’t alright for people to expect their partners to calm down after a few years and that they should embrace their partners’ quirks- something that she credits to the success of her marriage.

In addition to their regular marriage struggles, ‘The Talk’ show host has also stayed with him through his persistent health issues. Three years ago, Ozzy had surgery after falling on his way to the bathroom in the night- the following few days weren’t good as he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease- he now uses a walking stick to assist his movements and has trouble speaking as well. The surgery had also aggravated some of his other longtime neck and back injuries from an ATV accident more than a decade ago. However, instead of these health issues creating a distance between them and tearing their marriage apart, it only seems to have brought them closer than ever.
