You really have to love someone to marry them 17 times. That’s what “Basketball Wife” Jackie Christie and her husband, former NBA player Doug Christie will do again this year when they renew their vows as they do annually. But this year’s ceremony comes with a twist – this year the Christies will join people around the country in their support of marriage equality. As much as the Christies love getting married, they think that everyone should have the opportunity. Christie is grateful that her own marriage, notable for its length and for Christie’s assertion that she took extreme lengths to keep her husband from straying, is intact and strong.
