The woman has played a wedding with the same man 24 times and has no plans to stop. The nurse wants to marry her husband 26 more times, and she has a special reason for this that only the most romantic people will understand.
Some people are surprised by a woman who has married 10 different men, but Leah Trager from California is well-known for being the first person to marry the same man 24 times. In 1996, Leah’s friends introduced her to her husband, George Humphrey.
After only six months of dating, they decided to get married. They had planned to get married in their hometown of San Diego, California, in front of family and friends, but they couldn’t wait that long, according to Comic Sands.
The couple then planned a romantic getaway and went to Carson City, Nevada, where they got married in a courthouse on July 12, 1997.
We couldn’t wait to get married, and running away seemed like a wild and romantic idea, so we got married in Nevada,” says Leah.
Back in California, the newlyweds never found the right time to tell their friends and family that they had run away and gotten married, so they started planning a second wedding. They got married again on July 11, 1998, exactly one year after the first time, in the backyard of the bride’s sister’s house in front of 70 guests.
After their second wedding, the couple had another crazy idea.
After we had two marriage licenses, we thought, “Well, we have two certificates from two different states. “Let’s get one from each of the 50 states,” the woman says.
Since then, they have traveled thousands of miles and spent about $50,000 (3.8 million rubles) on remarriages, which they have done every year on their anniversary in a different state.
George and I are always newlyweds, but that doesn’t mean we ignore marriage and relationships. On the other hand, we think about them every year. We consider our relationships and where we are in life when we say our vows. This is how we celebrate our wedding anniversary – we get married again.
Every time a woman puts on a new dress. She tried on her mother’s wedding dress at a wedding in North Dakota and her grandmother’s at a wedding in California. Before the party, she bought other dresses, but she never spent more than $200 on any of them.
The weddings themselves weren’t very expensive, but when you factor in the cost of travel and lodging, Leah estimates that we spent around $50,000.
In 2015, after Leah and George’s 19th wedding, they decided to have weddings with themes. One of the most memorable was a party in Memphis, Tennessee, Elvis Presley’s hometown and the place where he was born.
In Newton, Iowa, in the year 2020, they went for a retro 1970s look. George wore a blue suit, and Leah wore a prom-style dress. They learn about the history and culture of a place before they go there so that they can use it in their look and oath.
Different weddings are fun for us for different reasons. Our second wedding in San Diego was the biggest and most special because it was at home with friends and family. The next most popular was a Pennsylvania wedding. In this state, there are no rules, and you can literally marry yourself, which we thought was great,” says Leah.
After 24 weddings, Leah and George have said “I do” in some crazy places, like a cemetery in Georgia and a beach in Florida. They also said “I do” on an Alaskan glacier and in a national forest in Wisconsin, where a kid goat held their rings. It’s too bad they won’t get married in Australia, where a kangaroo could do the same thing.
