Mark McGrath marries girlfriend after 18 years
Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath and girlfriend Carin Kingsland have taken the next step in their long-term relationship and have tied the knot.
A rep for McGrath tells CNN that the musician married Kingsland, 39, on Monday "in a small ceremony with family and friends."
McGrath, 44, and his new wife told People magazine that the wedding arrived after "18 years of breakups, makeups, beautiful twins and an unwavering love that provided some pretty damn good song lyrics." The couple's twins, 2-year-old Lydon and Hartley, were on hand as the ring bearer and the flower girl, respectively.
McGrath met Kingsland in 1994 at the Viper Room in Los Angeles, and the rocker later proposed there on New Year's Eve in 2009. It's the first marriage for both.

They look very happy together – congratulations to them both. From what I've heard from him on the Stern show he sounds like a very down-to-earth guy.
She is gorgeous. All the haters saying she is not, probably do not have a woman anywhere as beautiful as this lady. She is simply very attractive and what does their timing of their wedding have to do with anyone but them?
are you on drugs or just into butt ugly?
He can have her. She is ugly.
All the best to you Mark and your family. I keep looking for you on Lyrics and do hope you come back
I have nothing to say about this.
This just in from the '...or Get of the Pot' newswire...
He's a rocker?
one hit wonder. not even a rocker. don't know what they call that krap nowdays.
Honestly...I can't understand a woman who would wait 18 years for someone to put a ring on it.
Because JR, some women aren't "waiting for a ring" They are living in a committed relationship happy to be with the person regardless of a ring.
I agree. It took him 18 years to realize that she was the one and to let the world know it. I guess the license does have value, she isn't rejecting it.
Apparently, love is blind. Or at least Mark is totally blind.I understand what some of you are saying on this board to a degree, but seriously, this is what she looks like at age 39. Tack on 20 years, and while I agree that Latina women can be smokin good in bed compared to most white women, she's obviously going to look like a Chipotle burrito with extra sour cream and beans...visualize a Mexican Jabba the Hut. He's going to regret every moment of this downhill slide into this abyss of lard – mark my words...I give it 1 year before he comes to his senses, and 2 years before his guilt passes and he pulls the trigger. Hope he had a Pre-nup.
Newsflash – he ain't no prize.
Hey Michael?? Guess what....MEN have problems, too when they age....like I can't wait til you reach the age where you need to ask your girlfriend, wife or lover to "wait" until you have to take that little blue pill LOL......your comment is so much a reflection of your generation. All what it "looks like" and not caring about substance. Maybe you'll hook up with some good looking skinny azz blonde who blows your sockpuppet every other hour UNTIL you get cancer and she's outta there. Try looking for the genuine qualities in people and stop looking at the surface. Just try it someday.
I don't know why anyone would want to reply to Michael, escept to say that he is a pompous, egotistical, man-of-the-world wannabe who is a low down dirt bag.
Please post a picture of your wife on the internet. Guess is you don't have one... Probably have no girlfriend, and maybe never did... Loser. I try not to post on these things, but your comment is one of the most stupid, immature, ignorant written bunch of garbage I have seen in a long time. Please go back to your cave and huddle in there until you die, because we really don't want you around...
She is pretty ..... this is just a bad pic, that's all.
What nasty people on this board, commenting about this woman's looks. And if the commenters' first names are to be believed, many are women.
IPeople making these vicious comments, PLEASE post photos of yourselves so we too can have some fun demeaning and cutting you down. As another said, watch out for Karma, she's a B****!
You SAID it, Terri.
It took him 18 years to agree to getting married.......
She was dumb for staying with him so long. Give the guy an ultimatum after a year, and make him WAIT!!! Why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free???
I thought he had married an 18-year old when I read the headlines. Hope they are hapy together.
And they divorce the next day.... I think if you're together 18 years, you're doing something right. Don't mess it up by marriage (though by law, only spouses have certain rights, unfortunately...).
People are both blind and cruel. She's obviously attractive, but what's important is what HE sees. I hope to God someone sees something good in YOU despite your internal (and probable external) ugliness!
WORST HEADLINE EVER! I thought he was marrying an 18-yr old. Not his "girlfriend of 18 years."
Aww, they look cute together! After 18 years I don't even know if getting married would even matter anymore, lol. To the ugly comments on here, I think she is very pretty. Also, you can't really judge by this picture, she was obviously caught off guard. I've seen other pictures and she looks fine to me. Yes she has a big forehead but so what, Tyra Banks made millions off of loving hers!
Most of these commenters must think themselves super models. She looks pretty standard, neither super attractive nor horribly fugly, right in the middle of normal.
He put the cart before the horse...then married it.
i'd get in bed with her before a mofo
they must have legalizied marriage to dogs in california recently.
Wow dude you sure have a lot of issues!
It's Obama's fault.
not me...i'd rather go out for the night and drink
who'd want to glue that nutjob...
always and forever.
You know you're a teabagger when you'd rather boink your cousin instead of that cute girl that works next to you at the glue factory.
They look like a wonderful happy couple and we wish them the best – the happiest times ever.
they are stable and will be together forever...look how calm he is as a man
Wow..18 yrs. He sure wanted to make sure she was the right one.lol. Good luck to them both.
i love a couple like this one...they are stable and will be together forever...look how calm he is as a man
care-your nothing to us but a screen...
It's a facade. He is a mo.
this is a happy couple ...stop being jealous of them...
just laugh ===
My husband & I finally got married 8 years ago, after 18 years together also. Sometimes it really does take that long to get to a place where you're ready for it. And looks aren't the most important thing, people!! The attraction obviously began back when they first met, when they were both young & hot. If you really love someone, you will eventually get there, even after all the ups & downs. Best wishes to them both!! 🙂
All I can say is MY invisible fiancé is beautiful and incredible. She lives with me in my mom's basement. She doesn't even care if I play Xbox all day long. She is the best.
worse comments. this is not a big deal.
I disagree. Burritos and tacos are very delicious. I could eat them for every meal.
Good luck to them. As for the horrible comments, just remember, it will come back at you. Karma, ever heard of that?
couples are a mess right now...this couple has my vote and respect
The article doesn't say if the lady in the picture is his fiancé. Maybe she is the cleaning lady or janitor.
a man i work with said–doesnt' matter what she does...he wants her and she gives him what he needs-not just x...but everything. i guess he's right.
Some of the comments on here are so mean. The man has been with this woman for 18 years!!! He obviously finds something beautiful within her to be with her for so long. Standards of beauty are different for many people and while some of you find that she doesn't live up to your standard (no doubt you all must be stunning), he loves her just the same. @Gina said it best, they look happy together.
No way. You should see my invisible girlfriend. She is so pretty she won all the beauty padgents and is the best cook ever. She is awesome. And she uses perfume so shd smells nice like pretty flowers.
I hope he was worth the wait.
comfortable with her and very happy. that's the energy i'm getting. i love that.
I don't know. Maybe some guys are hot for their grandmothers.
Good for them. And all the shallow, nasty people on here will no doubt end up with the relationships they deserve.
I sure hope the poor guy gets better soon.
haircut bangs that is...she has a big far head..lol
It not a forhead. It's a fifteen or twenty head.
Yeah, you could show a film on that forehead...best wishes to them both, anyway.
he looks happy with her...that's whats important
Easily one of the least attractive women I have ever seen. Not kidding. What is wrong with this guy?
he's pretty fugly himself, so what's the big whoop?
Holey Moley ! Is he completely blind?
