For a researcher to be chosen as a Nobel Prize recipient is a rare honor in itself. The Nobel Prize is specifically awarded to researchers who have made outstanding discoveries or done exceptional work in the fields of Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, Economic Sciences, and Peace.
It is even more rare for a group or a duo of researchers who are related, either through family lineage or by marriage, to acquire the Nobel Prize.
To date, there have been only six married couples wherein both partners are Nobel Laureates. This infographic lists all six couples in ascending order of the year in which they were awarded the Nobel Prize, their prize-winning discovery, as well as a fun fact about the Nobel Prize-Awarded Couple.
