The Most Interesting People in Religion: 250 Anecdotes
Print edition. This book contains 250 anecdotes about religion, including this one: Comedian Joe E. Brown got married three times to the same woman and never got a divorce. As an impoverished acrobat, he married his wife in an inexpensive civil ceremony, but promised her when they could afford it, they would get married in a fancy church wedding-which they did, 25 years later. A few years after the fancy church wedding, Mrs. Brown said that she wanted to be married by a Catholic priest, since she was Catholic. Mr. Brown agreed to her request, then added, "If it will make you any happier, let a Rabbi marry us, too."
