    I think it's great that they found their way back to each other. Every child's dream come true to have their parent's reunited, even if that child is now 28 years old! Kudos for fitting into that dress again after 30 years, and for keeping it quiet enough that we were all completely surprised.

    As great an individual that Marie is, she is also very controversial.

    I am so Happy for them Both.

    I am also so glad that sheis happy.

    I would never say anything negative about this. I am just happy for them.

    When I lived in Las Vegas in the early 90's, I was a worker in the Las Vegas Temple. I also did a Stake Mission and was able to get my 1/2 Brother into the Church.

    The Vegas years where one my happyist and productive Times.

    I am so happy for them both.

    Best Wishes Steve and Marie.

    So happy for their family. Life is challenging and I just pray for the best for everyone. I think as we mature alot of the differences that were so huge and tragic when we are so young and naive are helped along by wisdom, perspective, prioritizing that come with age. Three words that don't crop up much in our rushed drama filled youth. I hope they really have a wonderful life together.

    Oh Marie...we're so very happy for you and your husband and your family. We've watched you and Donny blossom since you and some of your family were at church with us in our 49th Ward in the Tropicana Chapel in 1975 or 76.
    We've "been there, done that" and having alittle age on us, and experience, this celestial opportunity is a whole lot better !! Our continued wish for your happiness with our love.

    Another example showing that marriage is a religious rite which the government should stay out of. Only a higher power can determine who does/will/should/might belong together now or after here as plainly even the marriage participants fail to know the long-term answer.

    Happiness. . .and hopefully some stability, to all who choose this path.

    I have always wondered if some of Steve's trials and mistakes from the first marriage came from an identity crisis of sorts. I know a lot of us back in the day made jokes about him being "Steve Osmond" and "oh yeah, Marie Osmond married the 'other' guard that plays with Danny Ainge." I think that has to wear on you, as a man especially, when you are reasonably accomplished in your own right and in the public eye, but not yet as famous as your spouse.

    But I now wish both the best. They have gone through a lot and it appears they maintained their dignity. I'm glad love is rekindled as I love a good love story as much as anyone else. It sounds like Mr. Craig was a great father figure during their time apart and that's cool and with all that Marie has endured, she deserves happiness. I would just urge them to slow down a bit and enjoy their time together focusing on each other and their family. But that's just one guy's opinion.

    Nice to see this couple back together. Obviously they both have realized what they had and lost so many years ago. Only those who have made temple covenants understand the true importance of this for Steve and Marie. I wish them all the best in this life and beyond.

    if hes such a wonderful person then why did she divorce him in the first place ? but the fact is I really have no interest in this at all I have better things to read and spend time on

    Which Temple is the Jordan Temple? Isn't is a journalistic standard to refer to a temple by its correct name? Does Ms. Prettyman have access to a list of temple names? Maybe she was just cutting and pasting this from another source. Oh, wait, doing that without accreditation is a big no-no, right?

    I have seen many national reports that cite the earlier marriage of Marie Osmond as having been in the "Jordan" temple. Not many national news ones citing it as the Jordan River Temple.

    I think we may have a problem here.

    Not any sniping/rude/jealous posts here?? Thats great! I'm impressed!

    And super kudos to Marie for her amazing weight loss / and fitting into her dress. How cool is that?

    And wonderful they got to go to a Temple again (on a day with emotional significance.)

    The best to them.

    I believe that's the lyrics of an old Frank Sinatra song.

    Good Luck and God Bless the Newly-Weds,

    It says a lot that he's been in her life as a friend and especially taking care of her and the kids since her divorce. He is clearly committed to her and we wish them all the best. (BTW, you both look fabulous, 30 years kater-wow. he's still hot, she's still beautiful. )

    I guess Marie has always loved him. He really blew it the first time and now, I hope it all works out. I know she was just devastated when it broke up the first time.

    This is really interesting because I saw her on Jay Leno a couple of nights ago and Jay asked her if she was seeing anyone. She said "no." I guess she wasn't seeing someone, she was marrying someone.

    Good for them. I hope it all works out this time. I'm glad they were able to get married in the Temple. I feel sorry for her second husband, though.

    I was playing in the first "Utah Jazz - Pro Am", and Steve got hurt in the game.

    Marie raced into the locker-room to check on Steve after the game... after we all got "decent"...

    Those two have always been in love.

    Isn't it funny, but with all of the other noise of the world... BOTH have once again found their sweethearts...

    Congrats Steve and Marie.
