Elizabeth Taylor was known as much for her husbands as she was for her talent and her gorgeous looks. Her many husbands became a but of many a joke. Perhaps she fell in love to easily, her perhaps men just fell in love with her to easily, but regardless, Elizabeth Taylor took multiple trips to the alter. She was married 8 times to 7 different men. Who were they all?

Richard Burton from March 15, 1964 – June 26, 1974
While filming Cleopatra, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton fell in love but both were married at the time (Taylor was married to Eddie Fisher still).

This marriage will last forever.” The two divorced on June 26th, 1974 only to rewed on October 10th, 1975. They divorced for good on July 29, 1976.
