You can't have a period in the title of your poll.

And you should rewrite your intro - it's unclear and the capitalization is wrong.

Not including older stars is kind of ridiculous.

You could add a note to Zsa Zsa's entry that her sisters had the same addiction to marriages - Eva was married five times and Magda was married six times; their mom was only married three times. Plus Magda married George Sanders who had also been married to Zsa Zsa. :D

FYC:
Jennifer O'Neill - 9 times
Larry King - 8 times
Artie Shaw - 8 times
Robert Evans - 7 times
Jerry Lee Lewis - 7 times
Martha Raye - 7 times 
Mel Harris - 6 times
Rex Harrison - 6 times
Eddie Fisher - 5 times
Rita Hayworth - 5 times
Martin Scorsese - 5 times
Gary Oldman - 5 times
Clark Gable - 5 times
Joan Collins - 5 times
Ginger Rogers - 5 times
Sean Bean - 5 times
James Cameron - 5 times (I think this is the most famous group of spouses of all the suggestions and entries already on your list)
Frank Sinatra - 4 times

I have removed most of my polls. The ones you criticized.  I agree that some were not so good. I would only ask that you take into consideration that you have done thousands of Polls, I am just getting started. To have someone of your caliber even notice me makes me happy. But on the other hand the way you critique can be hurtful.
You made me feel my work was crap. This is why I removed the majority of my polls. Please be nicer. Please. I'm new at this. When you first started doing this did you ever make a poll that was not up to your standards of say today? We all have to spread our wings. Sometimes we hit the ground. Sometimes we soar. Please HELP me. Just don't point out flaws. Thank you.

Does he still live with the two porn stars. If they stayed long enough, they would be common law marriages. Then he would have a two-fer! Then he would have 5.

This is a correction as worded now. No less than 3 has been changed to 4.
3 Strikes and your out! Not these Celebrities. These 15, have been hitched no less than 4 times. Who is your favorite Divorcee? After voting,

I changed this because I made an error. It inferred that celebrities married three times would be on the list. I mistakenly put no less than 3. These celebs went for the 4th strike and beyond. Sorry about the confusion.
My BAD!

Maybe you should make it divorced no less than 3 times rather than married 4? Since the poll title is referring to divorce it makes more sense to refer to number of divorces in the description

Hollywood stars and their relationships ...
When you see the money involved in these divorces, it's ridiculous. These celebrities do not accept the fact that they are not meant for a lifetime of engagement.

If it did not work the first and second time, accept the fact that you were not made for it.

Actors only play roles. Then they play new ones. I think they just consider marriage a TV program.
They eventually get cancelled!

I didn't want to outright state so earlier, but I did think it awkward to omit Donald John Trump from the list. The problem is that divorces are hardly the favorite things about any of these celebrities.

@CliffJ:

I agree that some things Jen writes could be put in a more friendly way, but I think there is always an honest effort to help beneath it. This here -

Why on earth would you say "she ever said that" when I made no reference to such?

You know what ASSUME is? Makes an a** out of....You know the rest.

- comes across as rather not nice from you. Just take a breath and relax :)

There is no need to be perfect, and there are many polls that started out as flawed but evolved into good ones with the help of others.

And even experienced users sometimes suggest a poll that they later realize is not good enough in its premise. But surely at least some of your suggestions have enough potential.

Cliff,
Why would you rub it in by taking a sentence out of context?
I was not trying to rub it in. It was a misinterpretation. I thought you were accusing Jen for saying something she hadn't, and I was merely defending her.
