Christopher and Dana were married on April 11, 1992 in an outside wedding on a damp afternoon at Field Farm in South Williamstown, Massachusetts.

Classic Quotes by Dana Reeve and Christopher Reeve about their relationship:

"We have always loved to have conversations and we still do - sometimes lengthy, esoteric, and deep; sometimes nostalgic, sometimes just stupid or gossipy. We also love to go to the theatre, movies, concerts, hockey games, baseball games, and anything that involves our kids...I can't really speak for Chris, but I know what I would want to hear: "I still you love you; I will continue to love you. We will get through this together, and I promise to keep you challenged and not to pity you....It is so important as a caregiver not to become so enmeshed in the role that you lose yourself. It's neither good for you nor your loved one. I make sure I pursue my own interests and career, and Chris encourages me to do so." Dana Reeve
"I took care of him in many ways, but he took care of me in so many ways. I demanded almost as much of our relationship after his disability as before basically telling him: 'You need to be my husband. I am there to support you; you need to support me.' I think it kept our relationship alive. Because if I had given up and said, 'Oh, you're sick. I'm not going to ever ask anything of you,' it would've belittled him. He was a willing and loving participant in our relationship, and he was an incredible husband because of that." Dana Reeve
"I have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer and am currently undergoing treatment. I have an excellent team of physicians and we are optimistic about my prognosis. My family and I deeply appreciate the care and concern of our friends and supporters and trust that everyone understands our need and desire for privacy during this time. I hope before too long to be sharing news of my good health and recovery. Now, more than ever, I feel Chris with me as I face this challenge. As always, I look to him as the ultimate example of defying the odds with strength, courage, and hope in the face of life's adversities." Dana Reeve
"I still love you no matter what. You are still you." Dana Reeve
