Glynn Wolfe, also known as Scotty Wolfe (July 25, 1908 - June 10, 1997), was a Baptist minister who resided in Blythe, California. He was famous for holding the record for the largest number of monogamous marriages (29). His shortest marriage lasted 19 days, and his longest lasted eleven years. His final marriage was to Linda Wolfe (née Essex), she happens to hold the record for the most married woman. The marriage was a publicity stunt, and a week after the wedding, Essex went back to her hometown in Indiana but she kept her married name.

Wolfe died in Redlands, California a month and a half before his 89th birthday.


Some marriages remain unverified. However, according to the Guinness Book of records, this list is accurate.
