Jul 17, 2021 · And so John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy embarked on their next chapter together as husband and wife.
Nearly 21 years after Carolyn Bessette married John F. Kennedy Jr. in an intimate, secret ceremony on an island just off the coast of Georgia, friends and family of the couple are still reflecting on their dramatic relationship, and mourning their untimely death. But the press wasn't the only stress on their marriage in its final weeks. Right before the tragic plane crash that would claim them both as victims (along with Bessette's sister Lauren), Kennedy was facing financial troubles at his magazine George while coming to grips with the fact that his best friend and cousin Anthony Radziwill was dying from cancer.
\\"They would love hard, and they would fight hard,\\" Ariel Paredes, friend of John and Carolyn's and granddaughter of Jackie Kennedy's aide Providencia Paredes, revealed to People magazine this week. \\"But they were very much in love.\\" \\"Anthonys impending death was a strain on their marriage, no doubt. But it was a difficult time for all of us. If it werent, we would be inhuman.\\" \\"But it took on a life of its own because it was the last chapter of their life. One week they could have been at war, and the the next week they could be right back in lovewell never know.\\"
One issue was undoubtedly the media attention that was a constant part of their lives. For her part, Bessette was never comfortable with the scrutiny that accompanied her marriage to President Kennedy's son. \\"If someone was going to steal our prince, the press and the public wanted her to be some kind of unblemished princess,\\" John Perry Barlow, a friend of Kennedy's, told People. \\"She was her own self. The woman everyone has read about it not at all as she was in real life.\\"
Sadly, we'll never know if that period of marital troubles was merely a blip on their otherwise strong relationship or something more serious, as the couple died tragically on July 16, 1999.
