27-year old Betty Carmichael from the small town of Indian Springs, North of Las Vegas, is certainly a perseverant woman when it comes to finding the man of her life.
After 313 failed marriages, she got married again Yesterday at a drive-thru wedding chapel in downtown Vegas, hoping that she had finally found “the right one for her”.
“I know I got it wrong the first few times, but I’m pretty sure that this guy, Dave… I mean Darrell, is finally the right one.”
Even if 277 of her unions were annulled in less than 48 hours and none of the others lasted more than 3 months, Ms. Carmichael keeps a rather positive outlook on her failed relationships.
“I promised myself that I would never have sex with a man without being married to him and I’ve always respected it. That means a lot to me because I’m a good Christian.”
The Guinness World Record organization has confirmed that they were already aware of Ms. Carmichael’s accomplishment.
In a brief communiqué, the organization informally recognized the new record and announced that it would dispatch a representative to meet the new record holder as soon as she came back from her honeymoon.
The former record was held by a 19th Century Arab Sultan, Sheikh Ali Bin Hassan el Seoud, who married 312 times, having up to 260 wives at the same time at the end of his life.
