14 Celebrities That Remarried and Got a Second Chance at Love

According to research, adults that are 55 years old or older are more likely to remarry than young adults. This fact makes sense since it takes time to go from one relationship to another. Not everyone is fortunate enough to find true love once, twice, or even four times, so if you have the chance, you’d better seize it.

We at Bright Side gathered 14 celebrities who showed us that when it comes to love, it’s better late than never.

1. Chris Pratt
