Some things I'll bet you

Some things I'll bet you didn't know about the author of The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

Consuelo and Saint-Exupery met at the Hotel Majestic in Buenos Aires. He teased her about her height (short), then took her on a plane ride to make up. When she refused to kiss him, he threatened to crash the plane. They were a "modern couple," with infidelities on both sides, but Saint-Exupery agonized over absences from her. They remained married till his death, though his family never liked her, and Encyclopaedia Britannica, among other publications of record, fails to note he was married at all.
