Nearly 30 years after their first marriage (and subsequent divorce), Marie Osmond, 51, and former pro basketball player Stephen Craig, 54, got married for a second time.
They were wed today in a private ceremony at a Las Vegas Mormon temple. She managed to squeeze into the same dress she donned in her 1982 wedding to Stephen. “I can’t breathe, but I’m in it,” she told People magazine.
Marie hadn’t initially planned to make the lacy, long-sleeved gown her “something old,” but the dress she had had specially designed for the occasion wasn’t right, she said, and this one popped up unexpectedly five days ago when she was cleaning her garage. “All of a sudden this box showed up in this pile of stuff,” she said.
It is not uncommon for people to remarry an ex-spouse, sometimes after years of separation or even, in Marie’s case, marriage to someone else. Marie’s first instinct was the right one, says her brother Donny. “These two people are right for each other,” he told ET.
“I am so happy and look forward to sharing my life with Stephen, who is an amazing man as well as a great father to my children,” said Marie, who has a son, Stephen, 28, with Craig.
What do you think of this, CatholicMatchers? Do you know anyone who remarried an ex-spouse? What kind of wisdom (or folly) lies in that second marriage?
