Thank you, Marvin, for your comment. It was not Galileo who married in 1563, but rather his parents who married then. Galileo was born in 1564, one year later. In fact Galileo did not marry, although he fathered three children out of wedlock, as stated in the article.

Apologies if the wording of the text confused you; a revision will be made. Thank you again for your feedback and for helping to make NWE a valuable informational resource.
