Meet the lady who married four times before she was 24
Alison Smith had told her latest husband Matthew Hume, 48, that she was not proud of her previous marriages and would never marry again.
Alison's marriage history
Marriage One: She married George Greenhowe but their union only lasted 10 days after George ran off with Alison's mother Pat.
(George and Pat have since married in a humanist wedding- making George Alison's stepfather)
Marriage Two: Alison was meant to marry Peter Knight but he got cold feet the day before the wedding and ran off.
His best friend Daniel Innes,18, 'stepped in' and married Alison instead.
Marriage Three: Having divorced Daniel due to 'family pressures', Alison married Willie McKellican.
She soon discovered he was already married.
He was investigated by the police for bigamy but no charges were brought. Alison left him.
Marriage Four: Alison married Alex Shepherd, a friend of her first husband George.
He divorced her after discovering she was having an affair with Matthew Hume, 48.
Marriage Five: Alison and Matthew married yesterday at Arbroath town hall. The service was attended by family including her mother and stepfather and ex-husband
