Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis recently found herself in the spotlight after a same-sex couple filmed her refusing them a marriage license back in July, despite the fact that the Supreme Court had just ruled gay marriage legal. Since then, Davis has been refusing marriage licenses to all couples, which had led to details about her personal life being put on display. Namely, don’t throw rocks at gay marriage if your own house has seen four husbands, or something like that.
Yes, the 49-year-old mother of four has been married a whopping four times and divorced thrice, in 1994, 2006 and 2008. U.S. News & World Report did some digging into Davis’ previous marriages, and here are some of the juicy details:
She gave birth to twins five months after divorcing her first husband. They were fathered by her third husband but adopted by her second. Davis worked at the clerk’s office at the time of each divorce and has since remarried.
Conveniently, Davis claims to have had a “religious awakening” four years ago, so I guess she has a clean slate now. She told reporters Tuesday that she is afraid of going to hell for violating “a central teaching” of the Bible if she complies and begins issuing marriage licenses. Thank goodness the Bible doesn’t say anything specifically about making babies with your third husband while married to your first husband and then having your second husband raise them.
