Following her wedding to CONRAD HILTON in 1950, ELIZABETH TAYLOR said, "Your heart knows when you meet the right man. There is no doubt that Nicky is the one I want to spend my life with."

Following her wedding to MICHAEL WILDING in 1952, she said, "I just want to be with Michael, to be his wife. This is, for me, the beginning of a happy end."

Following her wedding to MIKE TODD in 1957: "I have given him my eternal love....This marriage will last forever."

Following her wedding to EDDIE FISHER in 1959: "I have never been happier in my life....We will be on our honeymoon for 30-40 years."

Following her wedding to RICHARD BURTON in 1964: "I’m so happy you can’t believe it... I love him enough to stand by him, no matter what he might do."

Following her second wedding to RICHARD BURTON in 1975: "There will be no more marriages or divorces. We are stuck like chicken feathers to tar."

Following her wedding to JOHN WARNER in 1976: "John is the best lover I’ve ever had.... I want to spend the rest of my life with him and I want to be buried with him."

In November of 1990, ELIZABETH TAYLOR finally said, "I don’t think I’ll ever get married again." ...

However, in OCTOBER of 1991, she did marry again; this time to Larry Fortensky. One columnist suggested that this time, the guests should throw MINUTE RICE!

Following that wedding, she said at a Press Conference: "I look at marriages kind of like movie scripts. I go into it hoping it’s going to be a hit, but knowing it may turn out to be a dud."

I think Elizabeth Taylor’s problem is that she just never had a realistic view of what really makes a relationship work.
