Marie Osmond marries Steve Craig in the Salt Lake Temple. Elder Paul H. Dunn of the First Council of Seventy, who performed the ceremony, wryly estimates there are 5,000 uninvited guests surrounding Temple Square. Among the crowd are anti-Mormon demonstrators who pass out pamphlets with a drawing of Marie Osmond and Steve Craig in temple clothes. After the wedding the 22- year-old bride emphatically declares, "I'm definitely Marie Craig," and leaves four days later on a tour that does not include her new husband. Elder Dunn, a close friend of the Osmond family is quoted by the Latter-day Sentinal as saying: "I really feel for Steve Craig. He's marrying a three-ring circus." The couple divorces a few years later.
