I, for one, think they will be VERY happy together! I do. Oh yes. Indeedy.

LOS ANGELES Sept. 20, 2004 — Britney Spears, who rose to stardom singing "Oops! ... I Did It Again," has once again tied the knot, the second marriage in nine months for the multi-platinum artist.
Spears, 22, married her fiance, 26-year-old dancer Kevin Federline, in a secret weekend ceremony, her record label said Sunday. "She did marry him," Jive Records spokeswoman Sonia Muckle told The Associated Press.
Muckle declined to provide further details. On its Web site, "Entertainment Tonight" said the wedding was held Saturday evening at a private home in the Studio City area with 20 to 30 people attending.
It was the second marriage in nine months for Spears. In January, she married childhood friend Jason Alexander in a surprise wedding in Las Vegas. That marriage was annulled 55 hours later.
In just a few years, Spears has gone from posing as a schoolgirl to sing "... Baby, One More Time" and saying sex should be saved for marriage to recording "I'm a Slave 4 U," kissing Madonna during the MTV Video Music Awards and posing nearly nude for magazine covers.
Spears' latest nuptials caught several of her fellow celebrities by surprise.
"Everybody is looking for happiness and love," comedian Ellen DeGeneres said while attending the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. "She's very young. We got to give her a break."
Dennis Franz of ABC's "NYPD Blue," with his arm draped around wife Joanie, said, "All I can do is wish her the best and say, `Compromise, compromise, compromise.'"
Spears and Federline announced their engagement in June after dating since early this year.
Federline appeared in the movie "You Got Served" and performed as a backup dancer for singer Justin Timberlake, Spears' former boyfriend. He was previously involved with actress Shar Jackson of TV's "Moesha." They have two children a 2-year-old and a newborn.
