She is the second spouse of Louis van Gaal.

Louis was previously married to Fernanda Obbes, whom he met when he was only 18 years old.

According to the sources, they instantly fell in love after seeing each other at the Catholic Youth society near his home. 

They walked down the aisle after three years of dating. Obbes was diagnosed with liver and pancreatic cancer. 

While he was dealing with emotional turmoil, fans mocked his wife's illness which was something unbearable, but he did not react and kept calm at the time. 

Referring to his spouse's illness, rival fans in one of Ajax's games held a placard that read: "Van Gaal, heeft een kankerwijf," which is translated as Van Gaal has a cancer bitch.

More than a decade later, when asked Louis when was the last time he cried, he said he cried at the demise of his beloved wife in 1994.

Soon after the demise of Obbes, Louis began dating Truus before Louis popped the question in 2007

They married the following year on the 8th of August, 2008, on Louis's birthday. 

Truus, in an interview, said that the marriage was important for her though it was not that important to Louis as he considered her as his spouse, but the media kept referring to her as his girlfriend. 

The couple has been in marital bliss since then.

Truss wanted to secretly tie the wedding knot in Las Vegas, but Louis wanted a grand wedding, so they celebrated their big day at their holiday home in Portugal.

Her husband has been undergoing treatment for prostate cancer.

Her husband revealed that he has been undergoing treatment for prostate cancer recently. He said he is being treated for a severe form of prostate cancer. 

According to him, he thought telling people you work with cancer might influence their thoughts and decisiveness, so he should not speak. 

You don’t die from prostate cancer, at least not in 90% of the cases. It is usually other diseases that kill you, he added. 

Louis also stated that he had a pretty aggressive form, got irradiated 25 times, and has a lot of management to do to get through life.
