While divorce is increasingly common in our modern world, it still seems rare that anyone marries more than twice. Already by the time someone is having their third marriage, you can't help wonder why they're throwing in more money into a system that clearly has not worked for them in the past. Now imagine a friend of yours is getting married for the fourth or fifth time, is it okay to say something?
Even in the world of Hollywood, getting married more than three times is not especially common. These marriage enthusiasts stand as outliers in an industry where divorce seems to be even more common than in normal life. Surprisingly, there are a lot of really interesting and bizarre stories behind some of these frequent marriers. Chances are, you might not have guessed any of these people were married more than once in the first place! Behind every marriage is a story of love and hate. There are good times and bad times. And let's not forget that not all marriages end in divorce, some are far more tragic, and in some cases the serial bride or groom remarried because of death.
Not every love story has to last forever, and not every marriage is worth staying in. Keeping that in mind, let's have a look at some of your favourite celebrities who have married more than 3 times!

1 Elizabeth Taylor, Married 8 Times
Long before Elizabeth Taylor stopped marrying new men, she represented Hollywood decadence when it came to love. Married a total of 8 times, this number somewhat represents the truth behind her story. She married Richard Burton, whom she called the love of her life, twice. Another one of her husbands, Mike Todd, died tragically in a plane accident. Considered by some the most beautiful woman in history, like many serial marriers on this list, Elizabeth Taylor was first married at a very young age - believing getting married at 18 would help her gain independence from her parents and the movie studio that employed her. Taylor's last marriage was to a construction worker, Larry Fortensky and the pair was married at Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch. They would also be divorced. Along with her eight marriages, Elizabeth Taylor had a number of affairs and was also engaged on a number of occasions.
