childhood for a girl in central Texas in the time—a state champion debater who was nevertheless expected to prepare for a career as housewife.That vision came to pass when she married David Richards while they were both still in college. The couple eventually had four children. After graduation from law school, David became a lawyer in Austin. Both David and Ann began to dabble in politics. Sarah Weddington, a candidate for the Texas legislature, recruited Ann to help run her campaign in 1971.

The job, and other things, placed so much strain on her private life that she and David divorced. Next she ran for State Treasurer and won again.
