10+ Celebrities Who Married The Same Person Twice

Love is a force to be reckoned with.

If anyone knows that, it's these celebs who have walked down the aisle more than once. Uniquely enough, some have married the same person twice.

Was the second time the charm? Let's find out with this list of 10+ celebs who married the same person twice.

1. Larry King

He's been married eight times, but the one that stuck the most was his marriage with Alene Akins. They were married twice, after all.

The first time, which lasted two years, was in 1961. When they wed a second time in 1968, they even had a daughter.

2. Eminem and Kimberly Scott

It's hard to believe that they went back to each other after their 2001 divorce. Give one listen to rapper's lyrics about her and you'll understand why...

Somehow, though, they got remarried in 2006, only to divorce within the same year.

3. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton

These two had quite the whirlwind relationship. They began as an affair, after meeting on the set of Cleopatra in 1963. They were married a year later.

The couple lasted 10 years before karma got them.

That's because Burton had an affair with someone else. When they reunited in 1975, this marked their *third* marriage.

The third time wasn't the charm, though, as their marital issues caused them to divorce once again in 1976.

4. Barbara Walters and Merv Adelson

The 20/20 host first married Merv in 1984, only to rush back together with him after their first divorce in 1986.

"He was a kind, funny, thoughtful man,” the journalist has said about her ex, whom she married twice.

5. Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner

The pair had been married twice before Wood's untimely death in 1981.

The first time was in 1957. This was a lifelong dream for the West Side Story star who had a lifelong crush on him. Sadly, they divorced in 1962.

They married for a second time in 1972 and lasted all the way until her tragic death.

“When Natalie died, I thought my life was over,” Wagner told Good Morning America.

“It’s always with you. It was a tremendous loss for all of us. We have our memories, and that’s the most important.”

6. Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson

The pair first met when Griffith was 14 and Johnson was 22.

Despite this, they moved in together a year later and got married when the Working Girl star turned 18. They divorced that same year.

For their second go at marriage, they got married in 1996 after having their daughter, Dakota Johnson.

That, sadly, failed as well. “You don’t need to get married to have a child anymore,” Griffin said, according to Us Weekly.

7. Elliott Gould and Jennifer Bogart

After the Ocean’s Eleven actor divorced Barbara Streisand, his next marriage was with Bogart, which started in 1973 only to end two years later.

Their second marriage was in 1978 and lasted only a year.

8. Judge Judy and Jerry Sheindlin

They're one of the few couples on this list who are still together after getting married twice!

“It was war,” Judy told Closer magazine about their first divorce in 1990. “I had to face some hard truths.”

Turns out, the time apart did their relationship good.

“I missed him and I really found out - this is not to denigrate your species - actually, most men are alike," she said on the show OBJECTified.

They got remarried a year later and have been together ever since.

9. Nene and Gregg Leakes

Like Judge Judy and Jerry Sheindlin, marrying twice did this couple well.

Fans first watched their marriage crumble on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But they also got to see things fall back together when the couple got remarried in 2013.

10. Ben Stein and Alexandra Denham

You probably know him best from Ferris Bueller's Day Off or Win Ben Stein's Money

But he's also quite the marrying kind, as he married his wife, Alexandra Denham, twice: once in 1974 and then three years later.

11. Marie Osmond And Steve Craig

The star was a repeat offender with the former basketball star. She was married to him for three years, starting in 1982. During that time, they had one son.

After this, they both went their separate ways, with Osmond remarrying in 1986.

She wed record producer Brian Blosil, with whom she had one more biological child and adopted five.

After their rocky marriage was over, Osmond reunited with Craig in 2011.

She even wore the same wedding dress to their second wedding!

12. Sinbad And Meredith Adkins

The comedian first married his wife in 1985. But since his career got in the way, they got a divorce in 1992.

Thankfully, the couple got together in 2002 and are still together today.

13. Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon

She has quite the track record of returning to her exes. In addition to Tommy Lee, she's gone back to Rick Salomon twice.

The good friends first got married in October of 2007. It ended that December when the Baywatch star cited fraud.

They repeated that same pattern in 2014: they were married and divorced again over the span of a few months.

“It’s like when you put something back in the fridge that’s not good,” she explained to Ellen DeGeneres.

“It’s not gonna be good the second time. When you go in there, I mean. You go, ‘Oh, that’s bad. Let me try that again!'”

14. Richard Pryor

Richard Pryor was known almost equally as much for his marriages as he was for his comedy routines.

The legendary comedian has married a total of seven times and remarried two of his ex-wives on two separate occasions!

15. Rodney Dangerfield

Rodney Dangerfield was a brilliant comedian and appeared in classic comedy films such as Caddyshack and Meet Wally Sparks.

He first married Joyce Indig in 1949-1962 and then remarried again barely a year later. The couple divorced in 1970.

16. Jean-Claude Van Damme

The former action hero is another star whose reputation regarding marital bliss precedes them. Jean-Claude first married his bodybuilder wife, Gladys Portugues in 1987 and [divorced](https://explore.newsner.com/jean-claude-van-damme-gladys-portugues-divorce-marriage-children-affair roughly five years later.

The couple rekindled and remarried in 1999 and are still together to this day.

17. Jacki Weaver

Jacki Weaver is best known for her Oscar-nominated performances in Silver Linings Playbook, as well as Animal Kingdom.

18. Paul Hogan

Paul and his wife Noelene Edwards were wed in 1958 and stayed married for over 23 years.

The couple then remarried less than a year after their divorce was finalized and stayed together for another decade before finally calling it quits.

19. Terrence Howard

Terrence Howard actually has a lot in common with Richard Pryor. Terrence divorced his first wife Lori McComas in 2003 only to remarry her less than two years later.

The Empire star then married Miranda Pak, divorced her in 2015, and wound up proposing yet again in 2018.

20. Dionne Warwick

Dionne Warwick has only been married twice in her life and both times it was to the same man. The iconic singer married drummer William Elliot in 1966 only to divorce him a year later.

The couple tried again that very same year and stayed together for eight years before divorcing for good.

21. Elon Musk

Did you know that Elon Musk has seven children and has been married three separate times; twice to the same woman?
