She was just 18 when she married Arkin
Yaffe was a music and dance student at Bennington when she met Arkin. She was just 18 when she married, then 21 years old in December 1955.
In his 2011 Memoir "An Improvised Life," Arkin detailed how marrying on the spur of the moment made things worse.
In his book, he wrote that the school was not happy with them getting married young, so they left the college and headed to New York City without any plans.
Within a few weeks, they discovered that Yaffe was pregnant with their first child. Arkin was desperate to find a job. He wanted to be a responsible husband.
Since he couldn't find any acting jobs, he ended up joining the folk band "The Terrace."
He was making money, and their financial situation was getting better, but he eventually started missing acting.
Acting was something he wanted to do from the beginning, so he ended up leaving the group.
Arkin did off-Broadway plays for more than a year. The family of three moved to St., Missouri, after Arkin landed a summer job there at Crystal Place.
During that time, Yaffe got pregnant with their second child, and the family moved back to New York.
Insecurity was the reason behind their split
After they moved back to New York, things started getting worse as he was not earning much money.
Insecurity started taking a toll on Yaffe as he wrote in his book that worries about money became too much for Yaffe that within months of the birth of their second child, son Matthew, she took the children and left.
Matthew was just three months old when they got separated. Following their divorce, Yaffe went on to study nurse.
She was in the musical group The Baby Sitters
