9 Famous People Who Have Married The Same Person Twice

Most of the time, when people get divorced, they don’t remarry that person. But it does happen.

If you ever broke up with someone, pre-marriage, and got back together with them again, not many people would bat an eyelid about it. But remarrying the same person sounds a bit more scandalous, even though the reasons why people would do it are pretty much the same: they miss each other, they still love each other, they want to fix things and make another go for it.

While you might not know anyone who has done this in real life, or maybe you know just one or two people who have, there have been plenty of celebrities over the years who have remarried someone after divorce.

Taylor was famously married eight times – two of them to actor Richard Burton, and their romance was legendary.
