1962: John and Cynthia Lennon

leave a comment »


John Lennon and Cynthia Powell were married on this day in 1962.     At the time, The Beatles were on the eve of “Love me do”, their first UK hit.

This is from The Beatles Bible:      

John and Cynthia met in 1957 while both were students at Liverpool Art College, and began a relationship the following year.

In mid-1962 she discovered she was pregnant – the pair had never used contraception. John’s reaction when she told him was: “There’s only one thing for it Cyn – we’ll have to get married”.

Brian Epstein thought fans of The Beatles might feel alienated to know one of them was married, and so the Lennons kept the wedding a secret.

They had one son, Julian, and divorced in 1968.     Cynthia died in 2015.
