From soul healer to soul mate

Gummer, who was friends with Streep’s brother Harry went to help her and later became her soul healer. 

When Gummer was out of the country for traveling, they kept in touch via letters. 

Initially, Streep was not ready to start a new relationship but ended up staying with Gummer after he returned from traveling. 

Six months later, on 30th of September, 1978, they were at the garden of Streep’s parents’ home exchanging their wedding vows.
