The Child King Henry VII got married in 1509, 1533, 1536, 1540 (twice), and 1543 - why?

- The Child King Henry VII got married in 1509, 1533, 1536, 1540 (twice), and 1543 - why. Henry VIII is one of the few English monarchs recognizable even in America, for his antics are legendary on both sides of the Atlantic. He is as notorious for killing important people as he is for getting married six times and his break with Rome. Indeed, Henry's reign would make a good comic book, for he was always off on some new half-baked project, be it invading France or plotting a crusade. His whole life was marked by impulsiveness and his "OK, that was fun, what's next?" attitude....   [tags: England History Henry VII essays]

- Marriage What does marriage mean. By definition, marriage is “the legal union of a man and a woman as husband and wife” (Webster’s Dictionary). Most people claim that they want their marriage to last a lifetime. Because over half of all marriages in the United States end in a divorce, most people lack the understanding of what it takes to stay married.
