Meg and Jack White

Unusually, White was Meg's birth surname. Jack was born Jack Gillis, and he took Meg's surname when they married in 1996. They divorced in 2000. The White Stripes' first three albums were released in 1999, 2000 and 2001. There were four more albums, the last in 2007; the band (as opposed to Mr. & Mrs. White) split in 2011.

Early in their career, the Whites claimed to be brother and sister. Wikipedia is confident that this was not true and they were married at the time the band was formed.
