Hepburn was briefly married as a young woman, but thereafter lived independently. She conducted a 26-year affair with her co-star Spencer Tracy, unbeknownst from the public, illustrating the unconventional lifestyle she would become famous for. Tracy, who was married, also insisted they relationship remain secret.

Hepburn was extremely devoted to Tracy, whom she described as "depressed" and "tortured". When Tracy's health declined in the 60s, she moved in with him and cared for him until he died in 1967. Out of consideration for Tracy's family, she did not attend his funeral.

Hepburn and Tracy co-starred in no less than nine movies.
