July 6, 1999 was technically not the first time that the super couple tied the knot. But it was the first time they did this even though they knew to whom they were reciting their vows.
“If you don’t succeed at first, try, try again” doesn’t really apply to the marriage-oriented Days of Our Lives duo John Black and Marlena Evans. Their first marriage, which began in 1986, was a complete success. There was only one problem: when they got involved, she believed she was taking Roman Brady’s “late” love for her husband.
Well, that and she herself would soon “die” in air quotes.
But in 1999, John and Marlena were ready to really “do” it. By then they knew Roman was alive and well – oh, and it goes without saying that John was not him. He had lost Mrs. Isabella. Marlena had tried to fight her feelings for John even though she had reunited with Roman. The exes had even gone through hell to free Marlena from the demon that had taken possession of her heavenly body and banished the devil Kristen DiMera from her life.
Well, as best anyone can; She always comes back like a bad penny.

“Oh, honey”, John sighed and beamed at his radiant bride, “we are meant to be together and I am so happy that we are.”

Likewise, her legion of fans who might read more than just a rerun of the ceremony to take a stroll down the aisle – and down Memory Lane at the same time – to not only see this wedding, but all of John’s and Marlena’s “I dos” in one giant Photo album.
