The institution of marriage means different things to different people. Some people would rather be institutionalized than to be married. Other people throughout history did not even have a choice because their marriage was pre-arranged by their families. Then there are those people who just love being married. They love the idea of being in love and newly married so much so that they marry multiple times.

Glynn Wolfe and Linda Essex Wolfe

Glynn Wolfe and Linda Essex Wolfe were two of those people. Glynn Wolfe was married a total of 29 times and even held the Guinness Book of World Records for the man with the most marriages up until his death in 1997. At age 88, Wolfe’s wife at that time, Linda Wolfe, had the record for the woman with the most marriages with 23 marriages. The two of them did not even live in the same state. She lived in Indiana and he lived in California. They had only actually spent a week together during their first year of marriage and were actually planning on celebrating their anniversary by renewing their vows but death interfered with their plans.
