14 Celebrities Who Have Begun A New Marriage With Their Ex-Spouse

When celebrities marry, they usually go all out, whether it’s by locating an expensive location or dressing up for the event. Some celebrities won’t stop finding their true halves even when they have got married several times. And in Hollywood, several marriages are not unusual. The celebrities on this list have all been married more than once—at least twice to the same spouse. Some recognized their mistakes after only a short time apart and soon reconciled. Some of the couples even stayed together for a long time. Others believe that the second marriage was a mistake.

But which celebs tried this, and how did it go for them? Let’s take a look at 14 Hollywood stars that married the same spouse twice. Several renowned people have been married to the same person multiple times. Some people only had a short break between marriages, whereas other Hollywood couples were split for decades before reuniting.

The number of divorces that end in remarriage may surprise you. Scroll down for some real Hollywood romance stories.
