shaz88, I hope that these are enough details about Shakespeare's marriage for you:

William Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway on November 27, 1582. He married her at the age of 18; she was 26 years old. The consistory court of the Diocese of Worcester issued their marriage license.

Six months after the marriage, Anne gave birth to a daughter named Susanna, the first of the couple's three children.

William and Shakespeare had two more children two years later. The two children were twins named Hamnet and Judith, a son and a daughter, respectively.
