An Indiana woman who holds the Guinness World Record for most marriages says she'd consider going for husband number 24. (In case you're wondering, there is also a record for most renewal vows -- 83!)

Born Linda Lou Taylor and now known as Linda Wolfe (see her picture here), she has been married to a convict, a preacher, a musician, a homeless man, several men who beat her, and even two gay men. Her former suitors won't deter her from going down the aisle again.

"I would get married again," she told the Gannett News Service, "because, you know, it gets lonely."

Altar Girl
Now 68, Wolfe has been widowed for more than a decade. She first wed at age 16, marrying 31-year-old George Scott. According to United States Department of Health and Human Services, about half of the women who tie the knot when they're under 18 will divorce within 10 years. Scott and Wolfe were no exception, as their union lasted seven years.

However, that's an eternity compared to the thirty-six hours she later spent married to Fred Chadwick!

Record-Breaking Ex
We were curious about the man who holds the record for most marriages, so we looked him up. Turns out that Glynn "Scotty" Wolfe, a Baptist minister who had 29 marriages (most of which ended in divorce), was Linda's most recent husband.

Though they may not be the oddest couple we've seen, the two did get married in 1996 as part of a publicity stunt for a British TV show.

The couple only spent a week together before she returned to her home in Anderson, Indiana, and he died the next year. Though Linda didn't have the money to attend his funeral in California, she continues to use his last name (she's used plenty of other surnames over the years). "As soon as I saw him, I knew I cared for him," she reportedly said.

And here we thought Elizabeth Taylor held the record for the most husbands (she had eight).

Tell us! Would you consider marrying again after everything that Linda has been through? Or would you rather just stay single?
