Fourth Time's the Smarm

Fourth Time's the Smarm

Alison Smith has nothing in common with the runaway bride. The 24-year-old Scotland native has already been married three times and recently walked down the aisle for a fourth time.

“Her first husband ran off with her mum after just 10 days, her second was a last minute stand-in for a fiancée who jilted her and the third was a bigamist,” reports the Scottish Sunday Mail newspaper.

She claims her fourth husband—a guy who readily admitted to cheating on her while they were engaged—is her true prince. Instead of planning a wedding, Smith should have been taking a step back and looking at what’s making her continue to choose these jerks over and over again. With a little self-esteem boost, she would likely give her new jerk the boot as well.

If you’ve been jilted one, two or three times, it’s easy to grow impatient and expect your “true” love to come waltzing in with the new moon. You’re lonely, vulnerable and looking for a new start. When you’ve given yourself some time to reflect and learn from the past, you’ll be more confident and ready when fate truly comes knocking. [Sunday Mail]
