A lot is known about many of the world's most notorious serial killers, but often we overlook the people who knew these murderers on a day-to-day basis and understood them on a level which none of us could ever understand, they are their lovers. Whether a wife, husband, girl/boyfriend or ex', these people give an invaluable insight into the mind of a serial killer.
So, who were these people who dated, got engaged to, married and (hopefully) divorced from some of the world's most infamous serial killers? Which killers were single? And, who were these twisted people who actually married a known serial killer... AFTER they were arrested for murder? As always, this is not a comprehensive list and it will be updated over time. Please note: as gay married has only recently been legalised in the UK/USA, any gay serial killers (who weren't a marriage prior to this change in the law, I've had to put in the single category, as this blog is about being "married" to a serial killer. Don't blame me! Blame politicians and their inability to realise that the times have changed.
Married (before/during) Murders:
Married (after) Murders/Crimes
Single / Dated Only: (or unmarried owing to a lack of equal rights for gay couples)
