Other Relationship Information about Jim Morrison and Patricia Kennealy:

After their initial interview, they began a correspondence, became friends and later lovers. She and Morrison exchanged marriage vows in a Celtic Pagan handfasting ceremony in June 1970. Before witnesses, one of them a Presbyterian minister, the couple signed a document declaring themselves wedded. Although handfasting, like other religious ceremonies, is not legal unless the appropriate State paperwork is filed, she later changed her legal name to include Morrison's name, and Morrison addressed letters and poems to her as "Patricia Morrison" and "my wife, Patricia".

Kennealy-Morrison published a memoir about her years with Jim Morrison, Strange Days: My Life With And Without Jim Morrison, and also discussed their relationship in an interview in the book Rock Wives. She served as an advisor on Oliver Stone's movie, The Doors, and played a small role in the film, as the High Priestess who marries the Jim and Patricia characters (portrayed by Val Kilmer and Kathleen Quinlan). However, in subsequent interviews and writings she was scathingly critical of Stone's portrayal of Morrison, herself, and other people who were the basis for the film's fictional characters, saying Stone's fiction bore little to no resemblance to the people she had known or the events they lived through. In the film her character is referred to as a "Wicca Priestess", however Kennealy-Morrison identifies as a Celtic Pagan, not a Wiccan.
