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 was the wife of William Shakespeare the playwright.
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 ha…ve therefore had the opportunity to meet William Shakespeare. At this time Anne would have been 26 and William 18. 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.
She was born in 1556.
William Shakespeare was 18 when he married Anne Hathaway who wasalready pregnant. She was 26 years old. It appeared to be a shotgun wedding and many speculate that he wanted t…o distance himselffrom Anne because he didn't want to marry her.
After 1597 she lived in New Place, the house Shakespeare bought for her to live in.
Shakespeare met is sexy wife in Stratford
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.
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.
We don't know exactly, but sometime before the end of August 1582 when Susanna was conceived.
In the Church in Stratford-upon-Avon.
No, she died long before he was born (about thirty years).
He most probably did since they married.
She was going to have a baby.
No. They were married until his death. Actually the evidence tends to suggest that there was no estrangement between them although they lived in different places for most of t…heir married life.
