Willie Nelson on marriage and divorce: “The reason divorces are so expensive is they’re worth it”

admin —  November 27, 2012 — 11 Comments

Joining Morgan for a primetime exclusive, Nelson proved adept at dodging the host’s signature question (“how many times have you been properly in love?”)

“I don’t think there’s anything improper,” said the musician who has sang often about “All the girls I’ve [he’s] loved before.” “I think love is love is love is love. God is love is love.”

Asked by the host if his current wife – Annie, whom he’s been married to for more than 20 years – is “the real love of your life,” Nelson quickly showcased his sharp-as-a-whip sense of humor:

“Well, for the moment she is.”

All joking aside, Nelson is certain of one thing: he’s a “hundred percent” romantic at heart.

    I agree! A Love is a Love, is a Love, is a Love………
    GOD is Love.
    Willie, you have been loved by all. I had the honor of meeting you about 7 years ago at Carl’s Corner. You were in a poker game, and they let me and my girlfriend come back there. We sat at the bar and had a beer, and when you had finished the game, you walked over and spent about 30 minutes visiting with us. You signed my shirt, and let us take pictures. That is something I will never forget.
    When I was 17, I was at farm aid, can’t remember where,(lol), but never dreamed I would truly get to meet you.
    I am 55 now, and I don’t get around like back in the day, but I will stay young at heart.
    Thanks for the many years of entertainment and love you have given us.
    God Bless

    It don’t take many divorces to make a wealthy man poor. Women don’t love you when the money dries up. When I lost my leg and job and sold my farm, my then wife took my house key off my key ring and left me with nothing but my pick up and a hospital Bed at $3,000 a day. My next venture into the underworld of marriage was to a crazy woman from Michigan. Five years of hell. She kicked me out in February in Michigan during a blizzard and left me with a Ford Focus and my Bulldog. Thank God for my Bulldog, she’s my best friend. This woman kept my Harley and ended up giving it back to Harley. My $30,000 custom Harley Trike gone. I prefer a Trike because of my missing left leg. Now, I’m broke, unemployed and short on money. Willie give me a job, so I can buy me a little farm and a new Trike. Please, give me a break, the women sure won’t. I learned something about Women, they take advantage of us because they know we won’t hit them. Don’t marry a big Woman either, they’re meaner than a little one.

    I love Willie! Always have always will. I married right out of high school to the father of my three kids. Waylon and Willie were staples in our home. I always preferred Willie. That was 1980. I have listened to all kinds of music, but I would listen to Willie sing or play anything. Willie, your guitar skills amaze me. I could sit and listen to you play for hours. Your voice is a lulling, familiar voice. That smile makes my heart sing. God Bless You, Always!

  10. Willie Nelson , I saw you serval times in Oklahoma, always have loved your music and your voice . My 75 Birthday is coming this July 21 , 2017 . God Bless you Willie.❤Chole

  11. Love you. My husband of 50 yrs…..took him to the concert at Columbia MD. Although your voice isn’t the same as yrs ago (whose is) you still light up the stage and still want to see you again. Please go on till at least 100!
