Elizabeth and Richard

Written by: Cecilia Macfarlane

                    Elizabeth Taylor known as "Liz'
Her acting skills and violet eyes make her a star in show biz
Jewelry was her passion, but her simple kindness was the jewel that made her shine
Married eight times (to Richard twice), no man captivated by her it seems could decline.

                     Richard Walter Jenkins aka Richard Burton
One of the best actors in his time with Welch good looks that was certain
A notoriously heavy drinker and smoker caused him to die fairly young
Married five times (to Liz twice), diaries of their personal life have recently been sprung.

*Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton had two volatile marriages to each other.
 Even though they had love and passion it's a prime example of how keeping a marriage together requires more than loving someone.
