Gene Simmons was once quoted as saying that "marriage is an institution, and I don't want to live in an institution." He's now married with two young adult daughters, living in Beverly Hills. To be fair, he held out for sixty years.

6. Tommy Lee

After serving time for kicking Pamela Anderson while she was holding their son, after being strongly encouraged to remove a tattoo of a swastika, after pouring a beer on a security guard's head, after being sued for negligence after a 4-year-old boy drowned in his pool, after being kicked out of the MTV Video Music Awards after getting in a fight with Kid Rock - Tommy Lee has seen the error of his ways and started supporting and donating to PETA. PETA.
