Concerning her husband, the polymath Pierre Beaumarchais (1732-99), whom she describes as "mon mari et mon meilleur ami pendant vingt ans, et je n'ai rien vu en lui que de louable et de généraux: les nombreuses persécutions dont il a été souvent la victime, n'ont jamais eu le pouvoir de troubler la sérénité de son âme [...]".
Beaumarchais lived with his lover, Marie-Thérèse de Willer-Mawlaz, for 12 years before she became his third wife in 1786. Together they had a daughter, Eugénie. Beaumarchais was accused by his enemies of poisoning his first two wives in order to lay claim to their family inheritance. While there was insufficient evidence to support the accusations, whether or not the poisonings took place is still the subject of debate.
