When asked if she feared she would lose her identity if she married the ambitious Bill, Hillary said, “I was terrified about losing my identity and getting lost in the kind of wake of Bill’s force-of-nature personality. I actually turned him down twice when he asked me to marry him.”
Eventually Hillary did warm to the idea of marrying Bill, with the two getting hitched in 1975.
“It was a big leap of faith, and I think most marriages are,” she said.
