She shared her life with him for 7 years (counting a divorce/separation in 1999; apparently, formally they were married for 3 more years); and because their marriage produced no children, it was irrelevant? I hope you are not trying to imply that marriages only count if people are willing and able to have children.
I hope she does think about her life previous to her current one once in a while. It would be healthy to not completely ignore 7 years of your life. She had been together longer with Alfonso (7 years) than she had been with Felipe when Infanta Sofía was born (4 1/2 years)...
