When did Anne and Shakespeare meet?
"The hamlet of Shottery was only a mile from the town of Stratford where William Shakespeare lived with his family. Anne Hathaway would have often visited the town and would have therefore had the opportunity to meet William Shakespeare. At this time Anne would have been 26 and William 18. A considerable age difference, with William Shakespeare still under the age of consent (21). It is apparent that Anne Hathaway became pregnant prior to marriage which would have no doubt caused a scandal for both of the families. Not an auspicious start for a marriage or a perfect choice of a wife for the son of an ambitious family. William Shakespeare's father John, in particular, would not have been pleased at the detrimental effect that the gossip would have had on his own social standing in Stratford. A hasty affair would have been arranged."

She died of old age.
They got married in Stratford upon Avon on November 28th 1582. Well, the ceremony may have taken place at Temple Grafton or Shottery instead, we aren't sure. As for the date, …the licence issued on November 27th. They could have been married the next day, but it is not clear.
because she was pregnant with Susannah. (their child)

A considerable age difference, We don't know exactly. It wasn't a large community and she didn't live that far away from Stratford. There were, no doubt, many occasions on which young people could meet.
We'll never know for sure. One man claimed or may have claimed to be Shakespeare's illegitimate son, although he may have meant godson or even inspiration. If that were true t…hen this would be a case of an extramarital affair. It has also been suggested that his death may have been the result of treatment for syphilis which he picked up from prostitutes. Working where he did, and being as far from home as he was, he may well have been involved with prostitutes, but we have no proof.

Anne Hathaway was 26 when she married William Shakespeare. She was 67 when she died.
Nobody knows this, although some people try to guess or make up stories about it. What we know for sure is that they met somewhere probably not far from Stratford (since she w…as from the nearby settlement of Shottery) between 1564 and September of 1582.
She is, sometimes. For some reason, many people refer to her by her maiden name. Since nowadays that name might cause confusion with the modern actress, she may be called Anne… Shakespeare more often.
She outlived him by seven years.
We don't know where they met since nobody kept records of that sort of thing. Anne was 26, and he was only 18. We assume that they married due to the pregnancy.
No, Shakespeare was married to Anne Hathaway up to the date of his death. She was his first and only wife.
We don't know exactly, but sometime before the end of August 1582 when Susanna was conceived.
No, she died long before he was born (about thirty years).
