8 Bizarre Stories of People Who Like to Get Married a LOT
1The woman who won the record for the most marriages with 23 ex-husbands
The best lover was Jack Gourley, who liked skinny dipping and impromptu trysts. She wed him three times. Wolfe also married a one-eyed inmate. Two of her husbands were gay, while two were homeless. Some cheated on her. One "choked her and turned her lip inside out." Another secured the fridge with a padlock and chain.
Her last marriage to Glynn Wolfe, a decade ago, was a publicity stunt. He took Linda as his bride, which officially made him the world's most married man at 29 times. He died a year later at age 88.
Ms. Wolfe has been single for a dozen years, her longest stint since childhood.
2The couple who renewed their vows for the 100th time
Lauren and David Blair from Hendersonville, Tennessee first met in 1982 and were instantly smitten with each other. Their first date came two days later, and within three months David had proposed. The course to true love rarely being smooth, Lauren actually said no the first time. However, it wasn't long before Lauren accepted and in the summer of 1984 the couple was married in Topanga Canyon, California.
Since then Lauren and David, at 60 and 58 years old respectively, have renewed their vows 99 times, with each ceremony taking place in a different location. I guess they really like honeymoons.
3The man who got married 53 times
He claimed to not be a playboy, but could not find the right woman to be with the first 51 times. His 52nd marriage to a Thai woman was perhaps the most successful, as he remained with her for 20 years until she died of cancer.
74-year-old Khadijah Udin agreed to re-marry him only if he promised to give up his affection for beauty and live with her forever. Kamarudin agreed to live and love her for the rest of his life.
Out of the 52 women he married, one was English and two were Thai. His shortest marriage was for only 2 days! Kamarudin had eight children from his wives and sixteen grandchildren. He passed away in 2007 after setting the record for being the most married man on planet earth.

5The company with the most married couples, since 76 employees are married to each other
That's right, the record for the most married couples employed by the same company is held by Tarjeta Naranja of Córdoba, Argentina who, as of April 2004, had 38 married couples working for them. All couples sent in marriage certificates and proof of employment.
I can't help but wonder how hard it is for their human resource department to arrange combined vacations for all of them.
6The Baptist minister who got married 29 times
Although he had 29 wives, 19 children, 40 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren, nobody stepped forward to claim his body when he died.
7The most married Hollywood stars, with 8 times each
Stan Laurel also had eight wedding ceremonies, but of these one was invalid because his divorce was not final, and two were "extra ceremonies" during his third marriage. In all he had four wives, one of whom he married twice.
8The man who is married to twin sisters and their cousin
Vicki and Alina have been married to Joe for 22 years after dating Joe simultaneously when they were just 18. Vicki's twin sister Valerie married Joe 12 years ago after her own polygamous union - with a man who had six other wives - broke down.
