Celeb Couples Keep Renewing Their Vows. I'll Stick to My Original Set.
The trend in Hollywood at the moment seems to be renewing wedding vows.
Matt Damon and his wife of seven years, Luciana Barroso, had a white re-wedding in St. Lucia. And Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon just had their marriage renewed in Disneyland. This was actually their fourth wedding ceremony. They get married every year, with Carey wearing a different wedding dress each time.
This got me thinking: My husband and I have been married for a long time. We've had our ups and downs and made it through. It would be fun to have a party. Why not get married again?
Then I looked into some other celebrity couples who have renewed their vows. It seems many celebs who've said, "I do again"...didn't.
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony renewed their vows in 2008. By 2010 they had split.
Madonna and Guy Ritchie renewed their vows in August 2008. By October 2008 they filed for divorce.
Then there's Heidi Klum and Seal. Renewing their vows every year for the seven years they were married didn't prevent them from filing for divorce in January of this year.
Hmmm. This is not a good track record for vow renewal. Not to mention, which wedding dress do you pass along to your daughter?
Mariah and Nick, Mat and Luciana, best of luck to you. I'm sticking with the original set, thanks.
