    Be smart! This is his fourth marriage …and he has a one year old…do you really think it will be different this time. This is your life, not a soap. Save your vows for somebody else.

    Do you really think someone who has been married three times previously and has 22 billion’s lawyer would let him get married without one? Has it occured to you that maybe there has been three marriages, not because women are marrying him for the money but maybe because he is an ass?

    People–read the article more carefully–it says that it’ her first marriage and her third.
    Can’t you be happy for her?
    And you know what they say, ‘third ones the charm!’.

    I think the smart thing to do. When marrying someone who has been married several times befor. Is to talk to the exes. Ask them what went wrong. Then ask him if he’s changed the way’s that got him divorced. So many people go into a relationship with their hearts, instead of using their heads. To make sure their heart can be and will be safe.

    Life is short.
    Marry the one you love.
    Enjoy the best things life can offer.
    Cheers to you both.
