She married George Bernard Shaw in 1898 after nursing him through an illness. They settled in Ayot St. Lawrence, a village in Hertfordshire, England (see Shaw's Corner), but travelled the world extensively during the 1930s. She resolved to have no children and abstained from sex completely throughout the marriage. Shaw had several affairs with married women.
Charlotte died in 1943 of osteitis deformans, a chronic bone disease, in their London residence and was cremated at Golders Green Crematorium, where her ashes were kept until Shaw's death in 1950. Their ashes were taken to Shaw's Corner, mixed and then scattered along footpaths and around the statue of Saint Joan in their garden.
