Most married man had 29 wives (and 28 divorces)

most married man

This guy gets it.

Some people spend most of their years looking for their special someone, that significant other that will be their wife\husband and share the rest of their life with. On the other hand – there was Glynn Wolfe (July 25, 1908 – June 10, 1997), A baptist minister from Blythe, California that holds the record for the largest number of marriages (29!). His shortest marriage lasted for 19 days, and his longest – 11 years. Surprisingly - his last marriage was to the woman who holds the same record for the most married woman.

These are his marriages according to the Guinness book of records:

  1. Marcie McDonald (1926-1927; her death)
  2. Stephanie Delaney (1928-1930; divorced)
  3. Victoria Ernest (1931; divorced)
  4. Katherine Johnson (1932; divorced)
  5. Rachel Jennigs-Prescott (1932-1934; divorced)
  6. Charlotte Devane (1935-1936; divorced)
  7. Valerie Harborn (1936; divorced)
  8. Charlotte Devane (1936-1938; her death)
  9. Frances Hunter (1939; her death)
  10. Carol Demmings (1940-1944; divorced)
  11. Priscilla Ralph (1946-1947; divorced)
  12. Katherine Archer (1948; divorced)
  13. Lisa Waters (1948; divorced)
  14. Katherine Archer (1949-1951; divorced)
  15. Nina Morgan-Stuart (1954; divorced)
  16. Chase Jones (1955; divorced)
  17. Kathleen Briggs (1958; divorced)
  18. Sharon Goodwin (1958-1959; divorced)
  19. Sharon Goodwin (1960; divorced)
  20. Demerle Goin-Rankin (1964; divorced)
  21. Julia Santiago (1968; divorced)
  22. Gloria Mascari (1969; divorced)
  23. Vivan Alvers (1970-1973; her death)
  24. Maria Velez (1977-1980; divorced)
  25. Eileen Shelton (1982-1984; divorced)
  26. Guadalupe Chavez (1979; divorced)
  27. Maria Chavez (1979-1984; divorced)
  28. Christine Camacho (1984-1995; divorced)
  29. Linda Essex (1996 – until his death 6/10/97)

 

I wonder if he was still able to remember their birthday dates and such. Although he had 29 wives, 19 children, 40 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren, nobody has stepped forward to claim his body when he died.
