On May 26, 1994 Michael Jackson married Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of superstar Elvis Presley. To say the couple was oddly matched is an understatement. Jackson was riding the upward swing of popularity enjoying fame and the constant exposure it brought; Lisa Marie was a quiet mother of two on the fringes of pop stardom with none of her late father’s star cache. So how did these two crazy kids come together? Lisa Marie later said she could see her father’s self-destructive lifestyle in Jackson and wanted to “save” him. It was her children’s safety that ended the marriage: Presley was concerned about the harm to her children from the exposure to Jackson’s wild lifestyle. Despite public displays of affection that stunned television audiences, the marriage was doomed from the beginning.
