McCartney A Married Man Again

After Paul McCartney ducked into a town hall in London a few weeks ago to deal with paper work required before a marriage, the when and where of his upcoming marriage to Nancy Shevell were all that remained to be discovered. Preparations leading into the weekend at McCartney's St. John's Wood residence made it clear the couple would be married before Monday.  The official pairing took place at Old Marlylebone Town hall on Sunday (10/9), the birthday of John Lennon.  The ceremony site was also where Paul had married first wife Linda Eastman in 1969, just a week before John's marriage to Yoko Ono.   Ron Wood of the Stones joined Ringo Starr and his wife, Barbara Bach, at the 45 minute ceremony, which was said to have included around 30 friends and family members.
McCartney married Heather Mills after Linda died of breast cancer.  His second marriage ended in 2008 with the former Beatle getting a harsh reminder that Money Can't Buy Me Love - but marriage to the wrong person can cost a fortune.  Whether Mills was out for money at the start only she knows, but Shevell enters the marriage independently wealthy enough that Paul can afford to be less uncomfortable about ulterior motives this time around.
