6 Celebrities Who Remarried Quickly After Their Former Love Died

By  | 

When someone gets married, it’s common courtesy to give your congratulations. Two people loving each other so much that they want to make a commitment to spend the rest of their lives together is SUCH a beautiful thing. But while the public had nothing but good things to say about Jason Earls and Katie Drysen’s wedding, and even Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s after they fell in love while Jennifer Aniston was still in the picture, that’s not always the case.

If you’re wondering who could possibly be at the receiving end of wedding-day criticism, let us explain. We’re not talking about whirlwhind (clearly doomed) marriages like YouTubers Chance Sutton and Tessa Brooks…we’re talking about stars whose significant other passed away and they moved on with someone else in a span of time that’s deemed “too soon” for some people.

But when is the appropriate time to move on and remarry after suffering the loss of a loved one — five years? A decade? Never? It seems like an impossible thing to put a number on, especially considering no one ever knows what someone has gone through or experienced without being in their shoes.

Even so, judgment over her second marriage is something Tiffany Thornton has been dealing with all week. Her ceremony really had some people questioning how much she had loved her first husband. And while that seems ridiculous to say to someone who is allowed to grieve on her own time, this Disney Channel alum isn’t the only celeb who has faced some serious criticism for moving on, quote-unquote, too quickly. All of the widows and widowers we rounded up alongside her found love again within three years of their S.O.’s death, but most did so in even less.
