From the Paper:

"In 1944 while he was Secretary of labor and social affairs, he met Maria Eva Duarte who became his mistress. On the following year, they were married after his arrest and succeeding release from detention. In 1946, Juan was elected to Presidency with his wife, Evita Peron, as his strong political supporter. Evita's machinations led to some improvements in the government and support for him and his position. However, Evita died of cancer in 1952 (Del Testa, et al., 2007:144)."
