Ingrid Bergman on her Wedding Day (1937)

In 1937, at the age of 21, Ingrid Bergman (1915 – 1982) married Petter Aron Lindström; a dentist at the time, he would later study to become a neurosurgeon. The couple had a daughter, Pia. The marriage lasted until 1950, when she fell in love with Italian film director Roberto Rossellini on the set of Stromboli.

Lindström sued for desertion and waged a custody battle with Bergman for their daughter, and Pia did not reunite with her mother until 1957.
