    There are some of us who aren't fans of the Osmonds, and never were. A brief note in the paper would have been sufficient for curiosity seekers who need to know what the celebrities are doing. I am interested in subject matter which has value and true interest. Her marriages, tragedies, dolls, highs and lows are of little value other than morbid curiosity regarding a has been who is trying to recapture her youth.

    Congratulations Marie and Steve! Sometimes love is better the second time around, even with the same person. Life in the spotlight is not easy, I'm sure. With time and maturity, perhaps both of them can handle it better now. I wish them the best of luck, and much happiness in the future.

    I wasn't aware that the DN had put out a call for guest editors. I believe a newspaper has the right to print what it wishes, in whatever section it wishes. Neither was I aware that the Church had put out a call for guest judges (right on, mfk1022!). Sister Osmond and Brother Craig were married in the temple, which means that a bishop (whom we LDS call a "judge in Israel") found each of them worthy. I have read of Marie's atypical childhood, of her exhaustion, depression, fainting, weight issues, heartache, and loss. I honestly can't remember a published list of her sins (the worst I heard of her was that she was snippy on a particular occasion), but whatever transgressions she has committed are covered by the Atonement. If you're jealous of the attention the Osmonds have gotten, or if you're just not a fan, perhaps the solution is not to read articles about the Osmonds. Simple enough?

    I am very happy for Marie, just don't feel that this is the proper place to have this story. It is too commercial, there was another story, that I don't see now, that also was about Marie, and I felt that one was very appropriate for the LDS News link.

    I am very Happy for Marie .She deserves it after the past few years she has had.As for the comments on this page except for one that wished her well all I can say is Now I know why she moved out of Utah.So much for being a Christian community.You people are more judgmental than anyone!It might do you well to keep in mind that God is the true judge of all and I am fairly certain he will judge Marie well!as for all of you so called Christians good luck I will pray for you.reminds me of the story of Christ in the temple with the so called faithful i recall Jesus judged them harshly as well.

    It is a mystery why the Deseret News is devoting space to a story about Marie Osmond. There are thousands of faithful LDS families that deserve to be recognized for their exemplary lives. Unfortunately Marie is not among them. Her checkered past and present are typical celebrity fodder.

    DN, please shift your efforts to worthy stories. Thank you.

    I'm wondering why Marie's marrying an ex husband that admittedly was not particularly faithful the first time around is making any kind of headlines?
    I'll give it a year.

    Does the Deseret News have a society page? SHouldn't this be there?

    Someone commented about the media not giving them their privacy, Marie is not giving herself the privacy. She is using her marriage as part of her promotion for her new CD with Donny. And putting some of this in the LDS Church section is a bit lame. Come on, Utah has a high percentage of LDS, if your going to put stories in here because they are LDS, then there would be not front page news. But not just one article about Marie or the Osmonds, two, can we say overkill and free advertising?

    Good for them. We all wish them all the happiness in the world. Temple marriage is eternal.
