    I’ve loved Melissa Gilbert as a performer for years but as this is the third marriage for both, I don’t hold out much hope it will last. I pray that I am wrong but if you’ve been married twice already, that just says to me that when the going gets tough, you give up!

    Well I hope you are both very Happy, as for me. I would never want to start taking care of someone else now that I near 50. Would rather spend my time with Grandchildren. Not having to ask if someone minds if I take a trip to see them. I mean at this age health will go, whose will be first and whose gonna have to take care of whom, are you really ready to do that, should other person become bed ridden and you have to change there diapers? Not me, have been doing that for last 3 years of my 8 year marriage. Intimate relationship, marriage partnership over for years now….full time employee and full time caregiver..that’s me. Wouldn’t wish on my enemies.

    “Geez…perhaps the letter “B” just isn’t good luck for her; Brinkman,Boxleitner and now Busfield?”
    Third time’s the charm? Best wishes!

    6 marriages between them? I wish them well in this 7th marriage but like Dr. Phil says. . . the best predictor of future success is.. . .

    Congrats y’all.

    Ignore the haters. People have a tendency to project their own insecurities and short-comings on others. :-)

    I can’t tell if she’s happy or not with all the work done to her face!

    I don’t see “beauty” or “gorgeous” in either of them. They are just downright UGLY. We can only hope they don’t have children together. Can you imagine what they would look like’!!! YUK!

    Her face looks awful. Too much plastic surgery…Poor girl…
    I don’t know why she would ever divorce handsome Bruce Boxleitner & get with this guy, but oh well, you can’t choose who you love. She’s marrying Pointdexter from Revenge of the Nerds.

    She needs to lay off the plastic surgery and he got old and ugly fast. Not aging well dear Timothy.
