Say what you will about Drew Peterson, but the man has a deep, abiding faith in the convention of marriage that has not been shaken by the, uh, unexpected endings to his previous couplings. For those who don't recall, Peterson, 54, is the Illinois ex-cop who is under suspicion in the deaths of his third and fourth wives. Potential wife No. 5 is described as a 23-year-old who lives near Peterson's home in Bolingbrook, Ill., and has been dating him for about four months. There is that little problem of Peterson still being married to his fourth wife, Stacy (shown in the photo with Peterson), who vanished in October 2007. Peterson is a suspect in the disappearance, which is under investigation by a grand jury. The panel also is looking into the death of Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in a bathtub in 2004. Savio's body was exhumed after Stacy Peterson's disappearance, and what originally was thought to be an accidental drowning was reclassified as a homicide. Peterson can free himself from his marriage to Stacy by claiming desertion, but with his track record, what woman in her right mind would marry this guy? As I often say when I see a guy or a gal with someone who, at least on the surface, would appear to be out of their league, perhaps Mr. Peterson has talents of which we're not aware. Also, a woman pondering matrimony with Peterson might think that with two potential murder charges hanging over his head, he might want to avoid any further complications and would comport himself in a way as to not even risk getting a parking ticket. I can't finish this up without first giving you a couple of great quotes from the Fox News story on the pending marriage. From Peterson: "Normally, the media has ruined every relationship I've had." The media drowned your third wife and spirited away the fourth one? And this from Peterson lawyer Joel Brodsky, regarding Peterson's desire to keep his fiancee's identity a secret: "He's genuinely fond of this girl, and he doesn't want to scare her away." A little media attention would make a difference? Love is strange.

Peterson is a piece of sh&*. He will reap what he has sowed and I hope they find his current wife soon. Dead or alive. Her family deserves closure.

Wow...This girl must be from some sort of deserted island where they don't get TV, radio or newspapers.

Just the fact that a guy has been married that many times is enough to turn me off. Two wives winding up dead under any circumstances makes me RUN in the opposite direction.

I too hope they find his current wife. Before this new girl becomes another missing person.

Couple theories, here. 1. Is she looking for her 15 minutes? 2. Is she looking to get her meal ticket punched? I hope so. Because, "Nah, she's just that damned dumb" would be a little disheartening.

Maybe I'm closed-minded, but even a potential murder conviction is a deal-breaker for me in a relationship.

Forget the whole "might be a multiple murderer" thing... the Magnum PI 80's porn-stache would be enough to make me say "thanks for the drink, please stay 100 ft away from me"---

The woman's head is blocking the view of his Mr. T Starter Set gold chains.

Leave it to you, ellipses, to have the best take on this topic!

Maybe she just has a thing for the bad boy? Or a seriously twisted daddy complex...
