They married the same person twice – Marriage is supposed to last forever. Of course due to many circumstances, often unforeseen it ends early and things go sour. You’ll always have some love for that person no matter what and on occasion that love re-blossoms and the couple decide to give married life another shot!
They married the same person twice
Not surprisingly the romantic worlds of the rich and famous have for many years played themselves out in front of us like a bad Spanish soap opera, with so many twists and turns people seem to be fixated with the private lives that are part fairytale and part nightmare! Personally I don’t like digging into the lives of others too much but today we are going to have a quick peak at some people you may have heard of that did marry the same person a second time…
Eminem – Everyone remembers the song Kim by Eminem. Well that song was about his wife whom he had divorced (I believe). They first married in 1999 and at the time of the song Kim she sued for defamation. However the pair reconciled and in 2006 they remarried. However the headline “Eminem files for divorce three months after 2006 marriage” soon struck and the pairing came to an end.
Carson McCullers – She is most well known for the 1940 debut novel The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. Carson had a turbulent relationship with Reeves McCullers. They married in 1937 and divorced in 1941. They then remarried in 1945. However in 1953 Reeves McCullers overdosed on sleeping pills after asking Carson to commit suicide along with him. A sad end of life but Carson wrote about their relationship in the play The Square Root of Wonderful.
Elizabeth Taylor - Elizabeth Taylor married eight times but in what is probably the most famous remarriage ever she married one famous man twice! It all started with an Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton scandalous affair. They met on the movie Cleopatra and married in 1964 having a 10 year stint. Not bad for Liz! They then gave it another shot in 1975 but it only lasted until 1976.
Travis Barker – The tattooed drummer of pop punk band Blink 182 married playboy bunny Shanna Moakler in 2004. It lasted to 2006 but then they were seen with rings back on in 2007. Due to some bad incidents and travis barker and Shanna Moakler police reports it seems the pair are certainly turbulent.
Rosemary Clooney – The lady with the velvet voice is aunt to George Clooney and mother of character actor Miguel Ferrer. She married husband Jose Ferrer in 1953 and they divorced in 1961. They then gave round two a shot in 1964 but it only lasted to 1967.
Jean Claude Van Damme – The muscles from Brussels Jean Claude Van Damme married four women! Also Jean Claude Van Damme has bipolar, not likely to make marriage easy as it’s an illness that requires someone very understanding. He married pro-bodybuilder Gladys Portugues in 1986 but that sadly ended after he had an affair with Darcy LaPier. However Gladys and Jean gave it another shot in 1999 and are still married.
Rodney Dangerfield – In 1962 when Dangerfield became a full time comedian he divorced his wife of 13 years. Then in 1963 Joyce Indig and Dangerfield tied the knot for a second time lasting until 1970. Two fairly long marriages to the same person!
So they are just a few of the many who have married the same person more than once. Do you know anymore, are there any who have married more than just twice?
We look forward to your thoughts and comments.
