As the saying goes, “marriage is work”. We all know what happens to people when their lives are all work and no play. Especially if their job involves being away from their spouse for long stretches of time. But they don’t have to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Savage Love columnist Dan Savage coined a term for open marriages and relationships that involve strict ground rules and respect: monogam-ish. It seems to have worked for Savage and his husband Terry, for over 2 decades.

Therapist Ian Kerner says that it works better if both partners come into the relationship with openness in mind. Bringing it up mid-stream is a sign that maybe the couple isn’t as romantically compatible as they once thought.

There are a variety of reasons why the celebrity couples on this list have tried opening up their marriage. For some, it was an experiment that failed epically and led to the dissolution of their union.

But every once in a while, a famously separated couple will decide to give their love another go. Maybe they were too young the first time. Sometimes, one (or both) of them cheated or had a substance abuse problem. Maybe it just wasn’t the right time.

Multiple marriages are not at all uncommon in Hollywood. The stars on this list have all been married more than once – and at least two of those marriages were to the same person. For some, they realized their mistake after a short time apart and quickly reconciled. Some of those couples even managed to stay together for the long haul. For others, it was the second marriage that was the mistake.

In a couple of cases, these celebrities re-married more than one former spouse. A few of these stars have so many marriages on their resume that it practically became a hobby. It’s quite possible that a few of these crazy kids will never quit each other. Who knows? They might even take the plunge a third time!
