Winnie Mandela

Of course, the most famous instance of a spouse staying true during a partner's jail sentence is Winnie Mandela. The civil rights activist handled all of Nelson Mandela's affairs, fought for his release and gave hope to his followers during his 27 years in prison. Sadly, their marriage didn't last long after his release. The couple of 38 years divorced in 1996, six years after he became a free man.
