Tamara Nosova remarried, and the former husband kept hoping that she would return to him.

The second husband, Yuri Bogolyubov, belonged to the famous acting dynasty. He looked after Tamara very nicely, covered her with flowers, letters, recited poetry. The actress could not hold back such an onslaught and agreed to a second marriage. But it did not last long either. The third husband of the actress was Vitaly Gubarev. According to Tamara Makarovna, this was the happiest time in her life. He wrote fairy tales, and she starred in films based on his scripts ("The Kingdom of Crooked Mirrors", "In the Farthest Kingdom").

Tamara Nosova's mother was often sick, so the actress looked after her. Vitaly Gubarev had his own apartment, but his wife refused to move there. The mother-in-law did not hide her dislike for her son-in-law. He seemed too "European" to her.

When Vitaly went for a walk to walk the dog, he often went to a cafe for a glass of brandy. The mother-in-law saw in this the son-in-law's tendency to alcoholism. She constantly grumbled, they say, she will not be, Toma will leave for the shooting, then Gubarev will arrange a real booze in the house.

We will go to a restaurant together, to the House of Cinema”. “Don't, I have a fur coat,” his mother of the actress trailed off. In the end, Vitaly could not stand the attacks of his mother-in-law and moved to his place. He married another woman, but he continued to yearn for Tamara.
