The split was amicable but painful nonetheless. Sara teared up on The Talk as she mused a few weeks after the breakup:

I wouldn’t trade that time, it’s such a special time in my life. But then you see people in their 70s and you wonder how do they do it? How do they make it last? And I would like to think that I can.

A few months later, someone new came into her life and changed everything...

Sara’s beautiful story with Linda Perry

When Sara met Linda Perry, a musician and songwriter, they hit it off right away. Before long, Sara and Linda realized they belong together and started dating.

After more than a year of dating, they decided to take their relationship to the next level. Linda was the one who popped the question, and she did it in the most romantic way possible, as Sara later told her co-hosts on The Talk.

That day in April 2013, they were enjoying a quiet picnic – it was just the two of them, Sara thought. Suddenly, a few strangers took out hidden instruments and started playing Lovesong by The Cure. Sara knew where this was going…

Then, Linda took out T-shirts out of her backpack, one after the other, with a word written on each of them, making the heart-exploding question ‘Will you marry me?’

Sara was speechless. When Linda took out a ring, there was one more unexpected surprise. The host recalled that moment:

[Linda said] 'Ok, turn around,' and I turn around and our moms are there and a couple friends.

Sara thought that was it, but then came the cherry on top that made the day truly unforgettable:

This guy walks up and [Linda] is like, 'This is John Waite,' who started playing Missing You.

Needless to say, Sara said ‘yes’ without a shadow of a doubt! She and Linda tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony on March 30, 2014. Just like the proposal, it was full of musical surprises from Linda.
