When asked what his fiancée thought of becoming his seventh wife, Allman replied, "That's not what she's becoming. She's becoming wife Number One. I don't have a wife, I haven't had one for years." Allman later told Morgan that "this time, I am really in love," and said that he was only in love with two of his previous wives, though "they didn't reciprocate."
