Emotional implications aside, we’d think most people were crazy for re-marrying their ex solely based on the fact that divorces and weddings are expensive! But, for celebrities, money is usually no object so they can afford to legalize and make null their love, as many times as they want. Here are 15 celebrities who remarried their exes.
