* AmicablyDivorced: Despite having divorced in 2000, an extremely close platonic friendship has evolved out of Jack and Meg's failed marriage. Meg was the maid of honor at Jack's 2005 marriage to model/musician Karen Elson. Meg and her second husband Jackson Smith were married in Jack White's backyard in 2009.

** To distract the media, Jack & Meg pretended to be siblings. Jack claimed this was because he wanted them to focus on the music and not their relationship. Also, their last names are stage names. They're actually not related in any way but performing together.
*** Well, ''kind of''. As noted above, they were married from 1995 to 2000. The interesting bit is that John Anthony ''Gillis'' changed ''his'' name upon marrying Megan Martha White. This happened as just a funny thing he decided to do when they got married; it wasn't for another two years that he got it in his head that his wife might join him onstage.

* KayfabeMusic: Jack insisted that his and Meg's relationship was that of being the two youngest siblings of ten, and that the idea for the band forming came when Meg began playing on Jack's drumkit in 1997. [[WordOfGod Jack says]] that this was to hide the true relationship of them being married (and AmicablyDivorced), as he feared people would focus more on the band's relationship than their music.
